HIV PEP: Hi, Unfortunately, there is a window period for most HIV tests.During this period you could test negative but actually be positive. You should always consider HIV counselling prior to testing as this allows the doctor to select the most appropriate test for your situation and advise you about your risk. If you would like to consult with a HIV clinician you can email [email protected] to book.
