Why is getting tested important?
Getting an HIV test, as well as getting tested for other STDs, is a great way to assess your sexual health. With that said, it is important to keep in mind that testing in and of itself does not provide direct protection against HIV or other STDs. Finding out your HIV status now, helps to keep you and others healthy.
When Should I Get Tested?
The antibodies to HIV in the body is what our test looks for, not HIV itself. Antibodies are produced by the immune system to fight off germs. On average, it can take 25 days to 3 months (with most people taking 25 days) for HIV antibodies to show up in the bloodstream, from the time a person has been infected with HIV. This is called the Window Period.
For information about the Window Period contact a HARC Prevention Specialist at 734-572-9355 or learn more here, from thebody.com.
