HIV Example Test Results
STD testing for HIV can be done using a few different blood tests depending upon your needs and concerns. The standard HIV test detects HIV antibodies in the blood and is effective typically after 90 days from possible exposure. Any early detection STD test such as Early HIV Detection (DNA PCR) Test uses polymerase chain reaction to detect HIV proviral DNA. An early detection STD test can produce a positive or negative result after approximately 28 days from exposure.
