If your results are negative, HIV was not found. If your results are positive, HIV was found in your bloodstream.

The CDC’s reports that about 1.2 million people in the United States were living with HIV at the end of 2012, the most recent year for which this information is available. Of those people, about 13%, or 1 in 8, did not know they were infected. Nearly 50,000 new infections are diagnosed every year in the U.S. With such high statistics, it is important to take an HIV RNA Early Detection test. If you have had a recent unprotected sexual encounter, you have been put at risk of contracting HIV and other STDs. Our 10-Test Panel tests for all major STDs including HIV Types 1 & 2. Our clinicians recommend taking the HIV RNA Early Detection Test 9-11 days after possible exposure to HIV.
