Window period of hiv test

Question: 

After PEP TREATMENT FINISH. When should I test for hiv test....

Answer: 

Hello there, Thank you for your inquiry. From what we gather from the question, you were asking about the testing intervals after finishing Post Exposure Prophylaxis (PEP) treatment. The schedule for HIV testing for individuals receiving PEP should have HIV testing at baseline, and 3 weeks, 6 weeks, and 3 months after completing PEP (1).

Recommendation: Receive HIV testing at baseline, 3 weeks, 6 weeks and 3 months. Refer to healthcare professional for more personalized answers.
