Mostly everyone feels scared or worried when going for an HIV test, but this is the best decision you can take to be sure of your health. The HIV process is usually quick, confidential, painless and sometimes free.
Where Can I Get Tested For HIV
No matter where you might be around the world, there are many places you can go and get tested for HIV. One of the best steps is to go for an online search for HIV testing [ตรวจเชื้อ HIV which is the term in Thai].
Assuming you have limited access to the internet, you can ask health professionals or sexual health charities what is available around your area. They will direct you to a place where testing is free.
What Happens When You Go For A Test
This aspect is what most people will like to know before going for an HIV test. First of all, before you are tested for HIV, your blood sample must be taken finger, or sometimes an oral swab. This is the process by which the testing pen is used to rub along your gums to collect cells from your mouth.
The time the result will take to come out will depend on the type of test you did. Assuming you want to take a rapid test, your result will come out within 20 minutes, while other types of tests will be taken to the laboratory which might take days or weeks for the test result to show.
These days, the HIV test is reliable, but it is recommended to go for a second confirmatory test to double check your result if the first result comes out positive. If after double checking and it still says positive, get an HIV diagnosis, then you can start treatment.
