What to Know About Our HIV Tests and other STI Tests in Chicago

Whether you’re experiencing HIV symptoms or believe you may have been exposed to the virus, early detection is crucial for effective treatment and preventing future transmission.

Types of HIV Tests

At Rapid STD Testing, we offer two types of highly reliable HIV tests. Each test requires a small sample of blood.

  •  HIV 1 & 2 Antibody (4th Generation)

This test detects p24 antigens and HIV antibodies. P24 antigens make up much of the virus and show up in blood within weeks of exposure. Later, your immune system fights the virus by producing HIV antibodies that attack the p24 antigens. The ability to detect HIV at either stage of infection makes this test practical for a wide range of patients.

  •  HIV RNA Test (HIV Early Detection Test)

This test can successfully detect HIV before p24 antigens are detectable, making it an ideal choice when you believe you may have contracted an infection recently.

When to Get Tested for HIV

At Rapid STD Testing, we recommend waiting 10 days after potential exposure before getting an HIV RNA test.

The most accurate test results occur after antibodies have built up in the bloodstream, which takes about twelve weeks. At that point, an antibodies test will be 99.5% accurate.

Getting Your HIV Test Results

In as few as 1-3 days, your test results will be ready. No trip to the doctor’s office or clinic is required. Just call Rapid STD Testing to speak privately with a professional counselor about your results.

Testing for Other STIs

Test panels for multiple sexually transmitted diseases, as well individual tests, are available for:

  •   Chlamydia
  •   Gonorrhea
  •   Syphilis
  •   Herpes (1 and 2)
  •   Hepatitis A, B, and C
  •   Trichomoniasis
