infection during window period
« on: July 09, 2006, 11:38:19 PM »
Hi Experts, This time i have no question due to anxiety or stress, its more for my knowledge and to keep me safe.

If a person is infected and still in window period (no HIV detected), what will happen if i do sex with that person?. Lets say i do unprotected sex with that person and next day we go for testing and that person still gets tested -ve then what are the chances of infection?.

This is just for addidng my knowledge.

Thanks All,

I've read that someone who is in the "window period" is now able to infect other uninfected partners.
