Brief Answer:
Test after 4 weeks do PEP after 72 hours.

Detailed Answer:
Hello dear, welcome to Ask a doctor service.
I read your query and here is my advice.

The earliest test done to check HIV exposure is to do 4th generation test 4 weeks after exposure. If it comes out negative you should repeat it after three months again to confirm it.
You can also do PEP ( post exposure profilaxy) taking retrovirals 72 hours after exposure in order to prevent being infected.

Hope I have answered the question.
Let me know if I can assist you further.
