Hi, What is the window period for hiv cmia test? Is it conclusive on 87th day or I have to retest again?
The window period is the time from infection until a test can detect any change. The average window period with HIV-1 antibody tests is 25 days for subtype B. Antigen testing cuts the window period to approximately 16 days and nucleic acid testing (NAT) further reduces this period to 12 days.

Hello Doc. I had unprotected sex with a female on october 5th this year it's been over 60 days and I have no symptoms. 5 weeks after possible infection I took an rapid hiv test (15 minutes) and it was negative. As I said, I have no symptoms at all. Should I be worried? And still take the 3 month test?

You have to do right kind of test at right time there is one concept of Window period that means if some infective micro organism enter into our body and you test on next day your report comes negative even even micro organism present in your body. Test will come positive after overturn number of day, weeks or months onky every disease and every test have different window period hiv 1 pro viral dna QUALITATIVE test has window period of 17 days that means you have to do this test only after 17 days to get accurate result HIV DUO has 3 month window period RAPID HIV ELISA AND OTHER CARD TEST HAS 6 month window period same way HBsAg, HCV and VDRL has window period of 3 month so you have to do it after 3 month of exposure.

Continue PEP. As you started it within 24 hrs, you are in safe zone. But what about other STDs? I suggest you to please take private consult with audio video chat and then I can guide you properly and explain you what is to be done.
