Have you recently had unprotected sex? Are you worried that you might have been exposed to HIV? Do you want results sooner rather than later? It used to take 25 days on average to develop any detectable antibodies for HIV and if you are okay with that the test is still available. However, if you would like to know sooner, lets talk about the HIV RNA test.
Unlike the antibody test, RNA test can detect the presence of HIV itself. This is done by looking for the HIV’s genetic material, or its RNA. This will only take on average 9 – 11 days to be detected instead of almost a month.
So if you think you could have HIV and want answers sooner rather than later, try the HIV RNA test. Its only a phone call away.
