For the private HIV Testing, you don't need to perform any prior preparation. There is no need for you to fast before visiting the lab to have a sample taken for HIV Testing. At the lab center, a single tube of blood will be taken from you. This blood is used to complete the test which detects the presence of antibodies in your blood. If the initial HIV test is a positive test then we perform a follow up assay to confirm at no additional cost to you.
The first reported case in the United States was in 1981. Since then to now it has spread worldwide. From that time to now there is still not cure for it. However infections are treatable if they are caught early via HIV testing. The Human Immunodeficiency Virus attacks the body's natural defenses and destroys them before they can respond to the invading infection. Getting HIV testing allows you to treat it before it enters into its final stages. The virus, on entering the body, is detected by the immune system which then produces antibodies in order to deal with the outsider. These antibodies are what the rapid HIV test looks for in order to determine if there is an infection present.Your rapid HIV test will only take approximately fifteen minutes.
If you think you may have been exposed to Human Immunodeficiency Virus then our screening option is ideal for detecting the presence of infection. Once you become sexually active, it is advised that you perform a standard HIV Testing regularly to ensure that you aren't infected with virus. Protection is the best way to avoid this infection, but if you have unprotected sex, you should get HIV tested often since this is risky behavior and can result in infection from an HIV positive partner.
Antibodies for HIV can take as much as 25 days to three months to be detectable in the bloodstream after initial HIV infection. We recommend that you wait at least one month before getting tested for HIV. Our rapid HIV test allows for quick results, allowing you to start to treat this infection as soon as possible. Time is of the essence here and the earlier you detect it, the better you can deal with it. That is why HIV testing is so important. Keeping yourself healthy is the number one priority.
