HIV Testing – Know Your Status

How do you know if someone has HIV?

The only way to know for sure is to get an HIV test.

  • You cannot tell who has HIV just by looking at them. Most people do not show any outward signs when they first get HIV.
  • A person can spread HIV even if he or she does not look sick.
  • Knowing your HIV status gives you the information you need to help you stay healthy.

How do you get tested for HIV?

There are three basic types of HIV tests:

  • Blood – A small amount of blood is taken from your finger or arm.
  • Oral – Fluid is taken from the inside of your mouth
  • Urine – A small cup of urine is used.

Some HIV tests take 1-2 weeks to get results from a lab. Other tests called “rapid HIV tests” can give results in about 20 minutes.

You can get tested at places like a doctor’s office, mobile health van, or health fair. There are also home HIV tests that let you test yourself.
