HIV & AIDS
2. What is window period?

Once you are infected with HIV, the virus will multiply in your body for a few weeks or even months before your immune system responds. During this time, you won't test positive for HIV, but you can infect other people. When your immune system responds, it starts to make antibodies. When this happens, you will test positive for HIV. This is called window period. This window period is roughly about 3 weeks to 6 months from the time of infection to the time when you will show antibodies against HIV.
