test period



Scenario: John has sex with Jane. John does not look decent. Jane is afraid of contracting aids from John, so she asked John to go for aids test 7 days after they had unprotected sexual intercourse. John was tested negative.

But what if John has contracted the disease but has not been diagnosed positive, so will Jane contract aids as well?

Thank you.


First of all, decent people get HIV every day. If John was recently infected with HIV, his test might still be negative after 7 days. The real issue here is what is happening to Jane, whether she looks "decent" or not. And the only way for Jane to find out is to get tested herself, now and again in 2-3 and 6 months. Even decent people need to practice safe sex all of the time, so Jane-- in all decency-- should start doing that immediately.
