Question on testing

Aug 11, 2013

I understand that a 3-month hiv anti-body test is most likely conclusive. But is there any hiv testing that is advance enough to detect hiv in a lesser time period? The anxiety is killing me. Thank you for your time

Response from Ms. Southall

Hi You can have a PCR test ran which looks for the actual virus. A more expensive test and even with that we recommend getting tested at the 90 day mark.

Be well and stay safe, Shannon

please help or someone assist
