    About the HIV testing window: 4 weeks after exposure about 50% of people have made the antibodies for HIV. By 6 weeks after exposure, this goes up to about 95%, however, some people don't make these antibodies until up to 12 weeks after infection. This is why it is so important not to rely on a negative test result until 3 months after your most recent possible exposure.
