If you think there is a risk you have been infected with HIV, you should get tested.
If you get infected with HIV, your body will make antibodies to fight it. The HIV test (a simple blood test) looks for these antibodies. It can take 8 to 14 weeks after you get infected for your body to produce enough antibodies to show up in the blood test.
