Testing

With regard to HIV testing, how come my clinic's website is saying it may take up to 6 months for antibodies for HIV to show up? I thought 3 months was accurate?

The official,conclusive hiv window period is 3 months post-exposure and has been since 2004.Your clinic needs to update its website because its 7 years behind the times.6 months is outdated and wrong.
