Am I at risk for HIV and AIDS?
- Have you injected drugs or steroids or shared equipment
(such as needles, syringes, cotton, water) with others?
- Have you had unprotected vaginal, anal, or oral sex with
men who have sex with men, multiple partners, or anonymous partners?
- Have you exchanged sex for drugs or money?
- Have you been diagnosed with or treated for hepatitis,
tuberculosis (TB), or a sexually transmitted disease (STD), like syphilis?
- Have you received a blood transfusion or clotting
factor between 1978 and 1985?
- Have you had sex with someone whose history of risk-taking
behavior is unknown to you or they may have had many sex partners?
- Have you had unprotected sex with someone who would answer
yes to any of the above questions?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, then you may
be at risk for HIV and AIDS and should be tested. HIV can
be transmitted through five human body fluids: blood,
semen, pre-ejaculate (pre-cum), vaginal fluids (including
cervical secretions), and breast milk. If you participate in
behaviors that put you in contact with these fluids, then your
chances of being infected have increased.
OraQuick Rapid Testing offers patients pain-free HIV testing
without the need for blood or needles and provides results in 20 minutes.
HIV Counseling Services
Voluntary counseling, testing, and referral programs provide people an opportunity
to learn their current HIV status, receive counseling about any behavioral changes
needed to avoid infection or infecting others, and receive information and referrals
to additional prevention programs, medical care or other services.
- Confidential HIV testing means you give your name when getting
tested. Only medical personnel or state health departments have access to the
test results. You must provide written permission before this information can be
revealed to others.
- Anonymous HIV testing means that we will not ask you for your
name at any time during the counseling and testing experience. Instead, test
subjects receive a unique number that corresponds to their specimen and test
result. We do not report the names of people who test anonymously - even if they
test HIV-positive - to anyone, and we do not give you anything in writing about
your test result.
*If you are pregnant or plan to become pregnant, counseling and testing is even
more important. If a woman is infected with HIV, medical therapies are available
to lower the chance of passing HIV to the infant before, during, or after birth.
