* ABOUT HIV TESTING
The HIV early detection test is a DNA-based test that can detect the virus as early as two weeks after possible exposure. However, our physician's recommend pairing the early detection test with the HIV Standard test, which is considered the "gold standard" in HIV screening. However, it may take up to 12 weeks for the HIV Standard test to provide accurate results. Repeat HIV testing is recommended for sexually active adults with multiple partners or concern of exposure.
