Window Period & HIV Test Accuracy

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

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

A HIV test detects specific Antibodies produced when the human body is fighting the virus. The antibodies help indicate the presence of an infection.

The Importance of HIV Window Periods

Different HIV tests have different HIV window periods, as different 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 thus detect different antibodies at different stages.

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

Different Stages of HIV Infection

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 be just like an illness similar to flu, with symptoms of fever, sweats, sore throat, etc. There is also a high risk of concurrent STD infection. STD screening and rapid HIV testing is important to ensure early diagnosis and treatment. Anonymous HIV testing is available at select clinics in Singapore. It is also available at DTAP @ Robertson.

HIV Acute HIV Infection occurs within 2 – 4 weeks after exposure. During this stage, Human Immunodeficiency Viruses will multiply rapidly, and start attacking the body immunity system by destroying CD4 cells.

An individual will typically experience Flu-like symptoms, HIV rash, HIV fever and other HIV signs and symptoms. HIV transmission risk at this stage is the highest.

Acute-Retroviral Syndrome:

As the whole body is reacting to fight off HIV, one may experience a variety of symptoms affecting all bodily systems. Some other Sexually Transmitted Diseases STDs may display similar signs and symptoms to HIV. Comprehensive STD testing is available to diagnosis those STDs.

General HIV Symptoms

  • Fever
  • Night Sweats
  • Lethargy
  • Malaise
  • Swollen Lymph Nodes
  • Weight loss

Sign and Symptoms on Skin

  • Rash (HIV Rash)
  • Ulcer on the penis, vaginal and other parts of the body

Digestive HIV Symptoms

  • Nausea,
  • Diarrhea,
  • Loss of Appetite

Neurological HIV Symptoms

  • Headache


  • Muscle aches
  • Joint aches

During the Chronic HIV Infection phase, HIV reproduces at a lower level. HIV-related sign and symptoms will disappear. The immunity system will gradually be weakened and destroyed. It will take a few years before the HIV infection progress to Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS) or the last stage.

If a person living with HIV is undergoing Highly Active Antiretroviral Therapy (HAART) or HIV Treatment, the infection at the chronic stage can be suppressed. The person needs to adhere strictly to HIV treatment regime.

At this phase, the CD4 for a person living with HIV has fallen drastically. In other words, a person’s immunity is severally damaged by HIV. With weak immunity, a person is prone to get serious infections or bacterial and fungal diseases that otherwise be able to fight off. These sorts of infection and diseases are called Opportunistic infection (OI).
