False negative results on HIV tests

A false HIV negative result is a test result that says you do not have HIV when, in fact, you do.

False negative results on HIV tests mostly occur when you test in the first few weeks after infection, during the window period

Most tests cannot pick all cases of infection during the window period. That is why it is advised to test again after 3 months.
