How Long Does It Take for HIV to Show in Blood?

Answer

According to the CDC, it takes up to 25 days long for HIV to show in the blood via antibodies if testing using an antibody test. However, it can take as long as 6 months for antibodies to show up in the blood system. HIV testing is done by looking for the antibodies to HIV, not the actual virus. If using RNA tests, it can show up in the blood within 9 to 11 days. More often, it is an antibody test being done rather than an RNA test because of the costs.
