Does urine test at gynecologist show HIV?

Jan 6, 2013

Does urine test at gynecologist show HIV? While I know that this test does not show HIV antibodies but wouldn't this test come up abnormal if I had an immunological disorder such as HIV? I also took a blood test so I should know my status for sure in a few weeks. I just wondered if the urine test would show up abnormal as well although they are not testing for that. Thank you all! :)
