HIV Window Period & HIV Test Accuracy

The HIV window period is the time between a potential HIV infection and the time an individual gets tested with an accurate result.

The body will produce an immunological response after an HIV infection.

HIV tests detect Antibodies produced when the human body is fighting the virus to indicate the presence of the infection.

Different HIV tests have different HIV window periods, as different HIV tests detect different indicators of HIV infection during the HIV development cycle.

As HIV develops in the human body, HIV antibodies and antigens (protein) will develop too. Different HIV tests can detect different antibodies at different stages.

When a wrong HIV test is done during the window period, a person can be infected with HIV but the test result still shows negative. This is called a false negative HIV result.

Remarks

HIV Post exposure Prophylaxis (HIV PEP) can reduce the chance of HIV infection within 72 hours after potential exposure to HIV.

HIV RNA PCR test has a small chance of giving a false positive result. If the RNA PCR test gives a report of <5000 viral copies per ml, it is likely a false positive.

HIV RNA PCR test is also use to test for HIV Viral Load for people living with HIV. The 4th Generation HIV Ag/Ab test can also start to detect HIV infection now - however, it is not yet a conclusive result.

4th Generation HIV Ag/Ab testing can detect most HIV infection now - however, it is not yet a conclusive result.

What Are The Different Stages of HIV Infection?

Anonymous HIV Testing

The difference between HIV and AIDS is that HIV is the virus that causes AIDS. AIDS is a syndrome, or a set of clinical signs and symptoms caused by late stage HIV infection, especially in the presence of Opportunistic Infections. Shortly after a person is infected with HIV, he or she may experience ARS (Acute-Retroviral Syndrome) - this can just be a flu-like illness, with symptoms of fever, sweats, sore throat, etc. There is also a high risk of concurrent STD infection. STD screening and HIV testing is important to ensure early diagnosis and treatment.
