Now, from exposure to full on infection is usually a fourteen to twenty-one day process. The new HIV viral tests can be 100% accurate at day 21 or later. ...Read more

Tricky syphilis: Syphilis can appear one week to THREE months after an exposure. Part of that has to do with how many bacteria came across at the time of infection. Obviously if there were alot of those germs, the infection would get started earlier than otherwise. Serological or blood testing should parallel those symptoms- it gets more complicated though when exposures were in the past. An ID doc can help. ...Read more

If worried, or in a special situation, one should discussed it with his doctor. ...Read more
