How long do u have to wait to find out if ur HIV + or - after sleeping with someone without protection ?
If i have slept today with someone infected with HIV, would taking the test on the next day show possitive ?
i think so as it could be absorbed into the blood by then but it should be recheacked after so soon just in case
I think you have to wait several months - maybe 6 months.
There's no point in being tested for at least three months. At three months, you may be able to get a positive result, but a negative result does not mean you are in the clear; it might mean the virus hasn't multiplied enough yet.
you have to wait at least six months to test. so close your legs and pray for the best.
Currently used antibody tests are more sensitive than those used in the past. Most people will develop detectable antibodies by 30 days after infection with HIV 1,2. Nearly everyone who is infected with HIV (99%) will have antibodies detected by 3 months after infection 3. Rarely do people take longer than 3 months, but it can happen 4.
there are ELISA and westernblot tests for detection of HIV, BUT THEY CAN'T DETECT in window period (it is usually around 30 days in majorities of cases). After this period these tests like ELISA and western blot will do work. However nowadays virus culture and one recently developed test (.....?) has been identified that can detect even in window period.
U have to wait for atleast 6 months b4 testing. If u test -ve, don't let ur libido cloud ur common sense.
You can take the test whenever YOU want. The only problem is, it takes some people alot longer to become positive than others, due to their current health, diet, etc. Also, you may find that after six months you go and test again and it comes back negative, your in the clear right? Wrong. Some experts say depending on who you are there could be up to a 7-10 year window where you could be testing negative the whole time, but perhaps you test again in another year, it could come back positive. Good Luck!!!!!!!
U HAVE TO CHECK AFTER SIX MONTHS ITS WINDOW PERIOD IS SIX MONTHS.
