  • More about the HIV Early Detection Test


    What type of testing method is used?
    This is a blood test. The lab will simply draw your blood.
    Are any preparations needed before the test?
    There are no preparations necessary before having the test.
    When can I expect to get my results?
    Test results are usually available in 2 – 3 business days but the HIV Early Detection Test typically takes 5.
    What will the test results tell me?
    The HIV Early Detection Test can give you your results up to 6 days after the encounter has occurred. The test is either positive or negative. Laboratory tests can help keep tabs on your health. Some of these tests will be done soon after you learn you are HIV positive. Then depending on your immune status, whether you are on medication or not, and a variety of other factors, your provider will set up a schedule for you. The lab tests look at how well your immune system is functioning (CD4 count), how rapidly HIV is progressing (viral load), how well your body is functioning (tests look at your kidneys, liver, cholesterol, and blood cells), whether you have other diseases that are associated with HIV (tests for certain infections). When done shortly after you find out you have HIV, these tests establish a starting point or “baseline.” Future tests will let you know how far from this baseline you have moved. This can help you tell how fast or slow the disease is moving and indicate whether treatments are working. Most labs include a “normal” range (high and low values) when they report test results. The most important results are the ones that fall outside these normal ranges. Test results often go up and down over time so don’t worry about small changes. Instead look for overall trends.
    Positive test results for HIV indicate that your body is infected with the virus that causes AIDS. It does NOT mean that you have AIDS. If your test is positive, one of our physicians will talk with you about your results and arrange for you to see a local HIV specialist who can guide you regarding additional testing, treatment and next steps.

    Is HIV treatable?
    There’s no cure for HIV but a variety of drugs can be used in combination to control the virus. Each class of anti-HIV drugs blocks the virus in different ways. It’s best to combine at least three drugs from two classes to avoid creating strains of HIV that are immune to single drugs. HIV treatment should reduce your viral load to the point that it’s undetectable. That doesn’t mean your HIV is gone. It just means that the test isn’t sensitive enough to detect it. You can still transmit HIV to others when your viral load is undetectable.
    Who should be tested for HIV?
    Anyone of any age, race, sex or sexual orientation can be infected, but you’re at greatest risk of HIV/AIDS if you: Have unprotected sex. Unprotected sex means having sex without using a new latex or polyurethane condom every time. Anal sex is more risky than is vaginal sex. The risk increases if you have multiple sexual partners. Have another STI. Many sexually transmitted infections (STIs) produce open sores on your genitals. These sores act as doorways for HIV to enter your body. Use intravenous drugs. People who use intravenous drugs often share needles and syringes. This exposes them to droplets of other people’s blood. Are an uncircumcised man. Studies indicate that lack of circumcision increases the risk of heterosexual transmission of HIV.
