Hello- Actually there is no such thing as “maximum HIV window period”. 95% of people have a window period within 1 month.* 99.97% of people have a window period within 3 months.* 99.9999% of people have a window period within 6 months.# 99.999999% of people have a window period within 12 months.** There are some very very rare people who never seroconvert - this happens for about one in one million infected persons**. These are known as “seronegative” patients. That means, their window period is, in theory, infinite. However, their HIV infection was discovered by other special methods of testing, which are too expensive/cumbersome to be done normally.
