If my HIV test is negative...

Consider your ongoing HIV prevention strategy. This may include PrEP, a once-daily pill that is highly effective in protecting against HIV.

Talk with your healthcare provider about whether you should schedule a follow-up test. The “window” period when HIV antibodies are detected by a test can take up to 12 weeks after exposure.

If you think you have been exposed to HIV within the last 72 hours, PEPpost exposure prophylaxis – may be an option.


If my HIV test is positive...

A positive HIV self-test needs to be confirmed by a blood test in medical setting.

If the follow-up test is also positive, you will start daily antiretroviral medication to lower your viral load. While not a cure, it is possible to reduce the viral load to levels undetectable by lab tests.

When HIV is undetectable it cannot be passed to others through sex.

With ongoing treatment, you can live a healthy, normal lifespan.
