HIV – What You Need To Know
How Do I Know If I Have HIV?
An HIV test is the only way to tell if you have become infected with HIV. People can have HIV without knowing it, and you can’t tell from looking at someone whether they have HIV or not. HIV tests are extremely accurate. The tests used today can usually tell if a person has HIV within a month of their infection. However, to be certain that a person does not have HIV, it’s recommended to test again three months after possible exposure to HIV. If you have HIV, it’s very important that it’s diagnosed. This will give you the best chance of getting the treatment and care you need to stay well.
