In brief: HIV testing

Most people develop HIV antibodies within 2-8 weeks of their infection.
The average is 25 days. 97% of people will develop detectable antibodies in the first 3 months. Rarely, it can take up to 6 months to develop antibody. If there's concern about acute hiv, a test that measures HIV RNA viral load can be done. The time between HIV infection and RNA detection is about 10 days. Talk with md.

In brief: Needless testing

Five? And with no history of unprotected sex? What is really going on? If you had and exposure and did not get the help to prevent an infection known as pep.
Then after three weeks you can get the HIV RNA or dna testing done that if negative is 100% accurate. Five? Do you have a good physician expert in this?
