CLAIMS NEGATIVE, TURNS OUT TO BE POSITIVE
You would probably be a good candidate HIV RNA testing, now available at City Clinic and in some other clinics and doctors' offices. With RNA testing, the virus can be found in the body a few weeks before antibodies show up, detecting recent infections. When you go in for testing, have a full STD screening done to cover all your bases. Having an STD can greatly increase the chances of transmitting or acquiring HIV.
If you need to talk to someone in person, try calling the HIV/Hep C Niteline at 1 800 273 AIDS. Trained phone operators are available from 5pm to 5am PT, 365 days a year to help ease the anxiety of an exposure, the trauma of being diagnosed HIV-positive or the trials of living with HIV/AIDS.
To your health,
HIV testing and care for those who are eligible -- at City Clinic.
