Brief Answer:
Window period exceeded

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for asking on HealthcareMagic.

I have gone carefully through your query and understand your concerns. The 'window period' for the tridot test is 4–6 weeks as most people generate the response within this period. However, approximately 5% of people take up to 3 months. Since 120 days have already elapsed you can be free from your worries.

Let me know if I could help further.
