THINGS TO KNOW AFTER GETTING TESTED

Interpreting the HIV test results

An HIV test can either be positive or negative, depending on whether one has contracted the virus or not. Positive or Negative HIV test results are reported.

An HIV window period refers to the time between a person getting infected with HIV and the display of accurate test results. This window duration for the disease usually ranges from around 3 to 12 weeks.

  • A negative HIV test result conveys the absence of HIV antibodies in the test sample.
  • A positive HIV test result conveys the presence of HIV antibodies in the test sample.

A confirmatory test can be conducted after some time has passed to check the initial test results.

Ms Sujata arrived on time and was very polite and caring throughout the process. Actually there was a mistake on my part where I couldn't attend her calls because I was not well and i feel asleep bcoz of my medicines. I had scheduled an appointment for my mother but Ms Sujata somehow reached my address by asking my neighbours. Such a lovely girl, and also the collection process was really smooth. Would absolutely recommend everyone to check out their services
