Lorraine explains how long a woman should wait to be tested after a possible HIV/AIDS contraction.

Six to eight weeks because usually it takes about that time, depending on the individual. It really depends on the individual’s health prior because if they are an individual with other chronic illnesses like sickle cell, diabetes, it could be sooner –three to six weeks. But, if let’s say you are a healthy person, you have no other chronic illness, it may take six to eight weeks for it to convert over because at that, during that time you have only really been exposed. And, even though it may have entered into your system, you may have an immune system that may be able to fight off something like the common cold.

We don’t understand why, but there has been individuals who have been repeatedly exposed and have not been infected with HIV.
