HIV Test in London

We specialise in providing the fastest, most convenient and confidential HIV tests in London. The HIV (Human Immunodeficiency Virus) targets your immune system by weakening the body's natural de-fences which means you are more prone to viral and bacterial infections. We have several testing options avail-able depending on the type of HIV test that needs to be performed. Some tests provide results immediately while others might take a little bit longer.

We offer the following HIV tests:

Causes:

HIV occurs during unprotected sexual intercourse with an infected person. It can also be spread by sharing needles or other injecting equipment with an infected person. It is possible for a HIV-positive mother to pass the virus to her child during pregnancy, delivery, and breastfeeding. The virus gets passed through bodily fluids and the risk of transmitting HIV through kissing happens when both partners have bleeding gums or mouth ulcers.

Procedure for HIV Testing:

Preparation for the HIV Testing:

For HIV testing you will need to be well hydrated. This makes the process of HIV testing easier and faster.

During the HIV Test:

HIV testing is not complex blood testing so only a small amount of your blood will be needed. A small needle will be inserted into a vein in your arm, near your elbow with a slight scratch or prick and a small amount of blood is extracted.

Conclusion

To sum up: HIV testing for London workers is easy. The advantages of visiting our clinic is that you can get tested quickly and be on your way to work, during your lunch break, or on the way home. We are available seven days a week 8am - 9pm weekdays and 10am - 2pm weekends. We are the solution to your dilemma. Find the answers with the right professionals to solve any worries or problems regarding HIV. Unfortunately HIV is a transferable virus and the sooner it is dealt with immediately, the better your outcome with the correct medications.

Body fluids that can transmit the infection are:

  • Blood.
  • Semen.
  • Breast milk.
  • Vaginal fluid.
  • Menstrual blood.
  • Fluids found in the lining of the anus.

Some routes through which HIV virus can infect the blood include:

  • Via the bloodstream via contaminated needles or other hypodermic equipment.
  • Through the lining of the genitals and anus.
  • Through the lining of the eyes and mouth.
  • Through sores and cuts.

What to do next:

A HIV test is the only way to know if you have been infected with the virus. Speak with your doctor if you have been exposed to the virus and get tested soon. The type of test chosen will depend on the time passed as poten-tial exposure to the virus which the doctor will advise you on. It does however involve givinga blood sample which is sent to a laboratory to detect for signs of the infection.

FAQs on HIV test

It is important to talk to a doctor soon after if you believe you have been exposed to the HIV virus. Getting tested is the only sure way of knowing if you have been infected.
Seroconversion illness happens after exposure when the body is fighting the virus that lasts for almost 1–2 weeks. Common symptoms are fever, skin rash, sore throat which are then accompanied by muscle or joint pain, fatigue and swollen glands.
Our early HIV detection test can give you peace of mind, but the doctor suggests repeating an HIV antibody test later on just to be sure.
