Our private clinic in Cambridge offers the following HIV tests:
- HIV 28 Day DUO Test. Provides very accurate HIV testing results for possible exposures that occurred at least 28 days ago. Results are available the same day your sample is received in the laboratory. The HIV Duo test combines an HIV antibody and HIV antigen test, to detect HIV infection sooner than a traditional antibody only test.
- HIV 10 Day PCR RNA Test. This test provides accurate HIV testing results for exposures that occurred at least ten days ago. While it is slightly less accurate than HIV DUO testing, it can give peace of mind earlier. It should be followed up at 28 days with a DUO test. The results for this HIV test take three working days to come back from the laboratory. The HIV RNA test is available in Cambridge with Hepatitis B and Hepatitis C.
HIV Testing in our Clinics
Your test requires a small sample of blood. This is sent to one of the leading pathology Laboratories in the UK. The very accurate results are provided quickly. The time for results depends on which test you choose.
The symptoms for an HIV infection can include:
- High fever
- Sore throat
- Mouth ulcers
- Diarrhoea and vomiting
- Abdominal pain
These symptoms are common to many illnesses including colds and flu. Therefore the only way to know if you have HIV, is to have a test.
What if I test Positive?
If it is detected early enough, and the appropriate treatment is followed, then HIV is no longer the life threatening infection it once was.
If you do test positive please do not worry, we are here to help you. Your Better2Know Doctor will refer you to a specialist. If you wish, you can talk to the Terrence Higgins Trust (THT) where you will find the advice and support you might need. The THT are experts in providing advice and guidance for the newly diagnosed.
