For most patients, a diagnosis of HIV would be the worst news they could receive. However, though this is a very serious illness, the latest generation of retroviral drugs ensures that its symptoms can be controlled, allowing sufferers to lead long and active lives.
HIV stands for human immunodeficiency virus and is most commonly contracted after having unprotected sex with someone who is infected.It can also be passed on as a result of sharing needles or other injecting equipment. The virus attacks the immune system, making it difficult for your body to fight disease and infection without help.
The most common symptom of HIV in its early stages is a flu-like illness which can occur a few weeks after infection. It is estimated that up to 80% of sufferers who have contracted the virus present symptoms in this way, but it is by no means certain that everyone infected will experience this. If you have had unprotected sex and feel you may have contracted HIV, the only way to get a proper diagnosis is via a blood test.
we provide three different HIV tests, each of which has its own unique diagnostic features:
We currently offer 3 different HIV tests: from £150
HIV INSTI test which is accurate 3 months after unprotected sexual contact. Results are ready in 60 seconds and the test only needs a finger prick sample. £150
