Hai, Usually HIV antibody tests available anywhere will take 8-12 weeks to become positive, sometimes may be delayed upto 3 months. This period is called as window period. So have another check up after 3 months after your contact. If it is negative even after 3 months you need not to worry. If you want to get it immediately, there are special tests are available called as DNA PCR test. That become psitive even in the first week itself. Doctor

Hi, You should check it again after completing 3 months of exposure. If you are still so paranoid about HIV, practice safe sex measures, do not have sex with unknown person, be faithful to one person. and take appropriate treatment soon.
