When Is The Right Time To Test?


If you are interested in knowing your sexual health status, test today and test often.

If you’re concerned about a recent encounter with someone whose STD status you don’t know, it is recommended to get tested in 2 weeks and again at 6 weeks after the encounter, to be sure the tests catch everything.

For a personalized test plan, call our Care Advisors at (772) 444-6658. Because different diseases become detectable by diagnostic testing at different times, this is the best way to ensure you get tested at the right time.

  • More about the Hepatitis B Test

    What type of testing method is used?
    This is a blood test. The lab will simply draw one small tube of blood which will determine if you have the virus in your system and whether it is acute or chronic.
    Are any preparations needed before the test?
    There are no preparations necessary before having the test.
    Who should be tested for hepatitis B?
    The following populations are at increased risk of becoming infected with HBV:
    Infants born to infected mothers, sex partners of infected persons, sexually active persons who are not in long term, mutually monogamous relationships, men who have sex with men, injection drug users, household contacts of persons with chronic HBV infection, health care and public safety workers at risk for occupational exposure to blood or blood contaminated body fluids, Hemodialysis patients, residents and staff of facilities for developmentally disabled persons and travelers to countries with intermediate or high prevalence of HBV infection.
    Consider hepatitis B testing as part of routine STD screening, especially if you have had unprotected sex with someone whose STD status you do not know or are concerned about.
    Hepatitis B testing is recommended for people who have a high risk of coming in contact with the virus, which also includes anyone who has used injection drugs or had unprotected sex with an infected partner. If you live with someone who is infected with hepatitis B or if you have had a sexual encounter with someone who has hepatitis B, you should be tested. Consider hepatitis B testing as part of routine STD screening, especially if you have had unprotected sex with someone whose STD status you do not know or are concerned about.

    Is hepatitis B curable?
    If it is determined that your hepatitis B infection is acute – meaning it is short-lived and will go away on its own – you may not need treatment. Instead, your doctor might recommend rest and adequate nutrition and fluids while your body fights the infection.
     
    If you’ve been diagnosed with chronic hepatitis B infection, you may have treatment to reduce the risk of liver disease and prevent you from passing the infection to others. The risk for chronic infection varies according to the age at infection and is greatest among young children. Approximately 90% of infants and 25%–50% of children aged 1–5 years will remain chronically infected with HBV. By contrast, approximately 95% of adults recover completely from HBV infection and do not become chronically infected.
    What will the results tell me?
    The Hepatitis B test results will tell you if you are positive or negative. A person can test positive for Hepatitis B but have a negative HBsAg confirmatory test which indicates you do not have Hepatitis B. The confirmatory test must also be positive for you to have Hepatitis B. If you want to be extra cautious you can also be retested if that will put your my at ease.
    Although it is uncommon, sometimes a person has a positive test for hepatitis B, but has negative confirmatory testing. If the confirmation test is negative, then you do not have hepatitis B.
