Windowing Period
I'm confused by the windowing period most often quoted by this site that after 6 weeks you can be confident you are HIV free. This seems to contradict the information on the CDC's website. While the CDC does say that most people develop detectable antibodies after 8 weeks. It also says that only 97 percent of people have detectable antibodies at 3 months (aka, about 13 weeks).

You can find the article here:
http://www.cdc.gov/hiv/topics/testing/index.htm

This seems to contradict the information that has been provided on this website and I'm not sure what to believe. Is it possible to provide an explanation for this?
