HIV is an infection that is present in blood lifelong if you are infected.If you have been at risk of exposure,then you need to be tested.The window period/incubation time is 6 weeks to 6 months.So if you have been tested during this period after exposure,you need to be re tested.Signs and symptoms appear much later so cannot rely on that.
