What symptoms are you concerned about?

What may have placed you at risk for HIV?

If you had a sexual encounter or other type contact or exposure of concern then you may certainly Folow up that event with appropriately timed testing.

This is a very common fear ...

Often we find people living in fear unnecessarily ...

You may consult your physician for HIV testing as soon as 11 days after suspect exposure for a PCR test for HIV ...30 days after suspect exposure for a GEN 4 HIV test is very reliable ( tests both for HIV antigen and antibody response )

These are very reliable tests ...

Symptoms of early HIV tend to be very nonspecific and actually would more often escape notice...

Such symptoms such as fatigue/ malaise/ tender lymph nodes / sore throat and others are very broad in nature and may be due to many more common reasons...

We can't diagnose early HIV based on the very non specific symptoms ...
