You can do two tests, one at the time of exposure and one 3 months later. Do the confirmatory or Western blot test. Take full universal precautions to prevent further exposure.

hi welcome to HCM
HIV testing timings s 1st test at the time of exposure and then after 3 months.because for 3months window period wil present so at that time you may get false negative it means even though infection is present but test shows negative so after 3months if its become ngative then it confirms that you are not infected with HIV OK.
