|Useful HIV testing method
May 31, 2002
Please tell me if there is any HIV testing method which can detect HIV virus even the netx day of infection.
| Response from Mr. Kull
There is no testing available that can detect HIV infection the day after exposure. The most reliable testing method available is the HIV antibody test. If you know that you have been exposed to HIV, more agressive treatment and screening methods can be pursued, and you should talk with your doctor if this is the case.
