Its always better to know your HIV status early so you can keep healthy, if you become HIV positive.
The only way to know if you have HIV is to get tested. If you know you have HIV, you can get the treatment and care you need.
It’s important to know your status and start treatment as soon as possible, as it can help you to stay healthy, to live a long life and to avoid passing HIV on to others.
After HIV enters the body, it may take time before the test can detect the virus (this is known as the window period). Different HIV tests have different window periods - but all tests give accurate results within a three month period.
Don’t wait. Get tested regularly!
You can’t tell whether you have been infected with HIV by how you feel.
Some people have flu-like symptoms when they first get infected (fever, sore throat or swollen glands). But some people have no symptoms at all.
You can have HIV and not know it!
