HIV Screening Test

Getting tested for HIV (HIV Screening Test) is the only method to know your HIV status and taking symptoms for granted is not right. If a person had a potential exposure, he/she should get tested since there may only be a flu-like syndrome or no symptoms at all if there is HIV infection.

There are two main types of HIV strains. These are HIV-1 and HIV-2. Each strain has different subtypes.

  • HIV-1: It is the most common HIV strain in India. It is highly infectious.
  • HIV-2: Mainly concentrated in West Africa and the other countries surrounding it. It is relatively uncommon and less infectious.

What is the need for an HIV Screening Test?

  • To identify HIV in the bloodstream at the earliest so that the patient can start the treatment quickly for living a better and longer life.
  • Your doctor may use it as a routine screen test or as a diagnostic test in people who are possibly exposed to HIV.
  • To contain the unexpected infection dissemination of HIV to healthy individuals.
  • A pregnant lady should get it done at the earliest so that she won’t pass it to her baby.
  • To assess the risk of disease after unplanned sexual intercourse.
  • For the prevention of HIV spread to the baby before delivery.
When one should take an HIV Screening Test?

Timing is important to get accurate HIV screening test results. If a person gets tested too early, the report will give a false positive or negative reading. The person should wait for a minimum of 2 to 4 weeks from the time of sexual intercourse or any other risk exposure before taking your test. If found positive, then the patients shall retest at the end of 1 month, 3 months and 6 months.

The risk exposure means the intravenous injection of drugs. If you are sexually active, regular testing is advised. HIV screening test may take some time to become detectable, and the patient must wait to ensure an accurate result.
