5th Generation HIV Test - TESTD
HIV (the human immunodeficiency virus) is a
serious viral infection that is spread through
body fluids, including through sexual
intercourse, and this includes vaginal, anal and
sometimes oral sex. HIV can also be spread by
needle stick contamination, by sharing needles,
receiving surgical treatment in foreign countries
(where sterilization of equipment may not meet
the standards of developed countries) and
sometimes it can be passed from the mother to a
child during the birth process or through breast
feeding.

IS THIS TEST RIGHT FOR ME?
HIV Lab Test Kit is easy to use at home. Blood
Sample is collected via a simple finger prick
method and sent to our partner lab for testing,
in a self-addressed envelope provided inside the
kit.TESTD provides 5th generation HIV testing,
which is the latest technology available. The
test seeks to detect both antigens and
antibodies. The test can detect HIV antigens
(p24) as early as 10 days after exposure but it
should be followed up with a 28 day HIV Duo test.

What are the symptoms of HIV?
  • Not everyone that is infected by HIV will show
    signs or symptoms of the infection. At first
    individuals may experience flu-like symptoms,
    these can include
  • diarrhoea
  • headaches
  • fatigue
  • sore throat
  • muscle aches and pains
  • If these symptoms do occur they can subside for a
    number of years and the HIV can go undetected in
    the body, but during this time the virus will
    multiply and can be passed on to other people.

What's the big deal with HIV?
If left alone and not managed or treated with
antiviral tablets, the infection can lead on to a
condition called AIDS (acquired immunodeficiency
syndrome), where the immune system becomes
weakened and this could eventually lead to life
threatening infections and even cancers. AIDS is
the last and final stage of the HIV infection
this is when your body can no longer fight the
infection. However, if caught early through
testing, with the correct antiviral medication,
most people with HIV will not go on to develop
AIDS.
