You could do a HIV Duo test. It is much cheaper than HIV rNA test and at 3weeks of exposure it would quite certainly pick it up

Hello, I went through your query, hiv RNA, testing is the one test used to detect HIV infection early (9_14days of infection) that is in window period (less than 12 weeks of hiv infection). And Most of antibody tests are negative in that period. There are several diagnostic centre where this test is available,, like probe diagnostics, Apollo hospitals,.. Please consult nearby diagnostic centre to know more....
