Thank you for choosing FirstMed to perform laboratory antibody tests for sexually transmitted infections (syphilis, HIV, Hepatitis B and Hepatitis C) (“STD Panel Quick Test”). This test detects antibodies to infectious pathogens from the blood.
The appearance of antibodies in the blood varies: this is the so-called “window period” when the infection is still too fresh to be detected. The STD Panel Quick Test can usually detect HIV 18 to 90 days after exposure. The earliest time to get tested is 2-3 weeks after potential exposure and again 2-3 weeks later, as the window period of syphilis, hepatitis B and C is 4-5 weeks after infection.
