Our private HIV testing clinics in Glasgow offers the following options:
- 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. This test detects HIV infection sooner than the traditional antibody only test.
- HIV 10 Day PCR RNA Test. This test provides accurate HIV testing results for possible 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 test takes three working days.
HIV Testing in our Clinics
The HIV test needs a sample of blood, which is then sent to our Laboratory for analysis. The very accurate results are provided to you quickly.
The symptoms for a HIV infection can include:
- High fever
- Sore throat
- Mouth ulcers
- Diarrhoea and vomiting
- Abdominal pain
These symptoms are common to many illnesses, so 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 undertaken without delay 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. 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. They have a dedicated website www.myhiv.org.uk which provides the HIV positive community a place to share their experiences and feelings.
