If my HIV test is negative...
Consider your ongoing HIV prevention strategy. This may include PrEP, a prevention option 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, PEP – post exposure prophylaxis – may be an option.
If my HIV test is positive...
If your HIV test comes back positive, a follow-up test will be conducted.
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.
