“Knowing your HEALTH STATUS is BETTER than not knowing at all.”
A non-reactive result (negative result) means that no HIV antibodies have been detected from both the oral sample and/or the blood sample.
If you tested non-reactive, now it’s time to start thinking about the HIV prevention options that work for you.
1. PrEP (Pre-exposure prophylaxis) If you’re at high risk of getting HIV, there is PrEP, a once-a-day pill. PrEP can get you away from HIV if you’re exposed to the virus.
2. Condom Don’t forget, condoms are a prevention option too. They’re the only way to protect against both HIV and other STDs
It’s important to remember, however, that you’ve had any potential exposures (i.e. condomless anal or vaginal sex) within the last three months, it’s recommneded to have another test in three months’ time. This is known as the window period.
Whether you’ve tested reactive or non-reactive, below are the links for you to receive the care, treatment, and even the counselling you need.
Like all screening tests, there is a small chance of the test showing a positive result when you are really negative. Therefore, it is crucially important that any reactive test must be confirmed with a traditional laboratory blood test a.k.a confirmatory testing.
HIV Treatment can help you to live a long, healthy life & prevent transmission to others.
