Hello

I am a double board certified clinical doctor and this is my area of expertise.

The window period, to be safe, is 2 weeks.

I want to be extra safe, and I tell patients 3 weeks.

The literature varies at 2 to 4 weeks.

Please click a positive rating [we are only paid per rating and that is how we offer this service].

I will answer any follow up question right here.

After 10 weeks you are accurate and you do not need further testing.

You need help with your anxiety.
