Details
Who should take the test?

Approximately 1 in 7 individuals in the United States are unaware of their HIV status. HIV, which stands for human immunodeficiency virus, compromises the immune system by damaging crucial cells responsible for combating diseases and infections. Although there is no definitive cure for HIV, it can be effectively managed with proper medical care. It is recommended that everyone aged 13 to 64 undergo HIV testing as part of their routine healthcare, with more frequent testing if engaging in activities that elevate the risk of HIV transmission.

Certain demographic groups in the United States face a higher HIV risk due to various factors, including sexual partners, behaviors, and geographic location. If your last HIV test, in which you tested negative, occurred more than a year ago, and you answer affirmatively to any of the following questions, it is advisable to promptly undergo an HIV test:

  • are you a man who has had sex with another man?
  • have you had sex (anal or vaginal) with an HIV-positive partner?
  • have you had more than one sex partner since your last HIV test?
  • have you injected drugs and shared needles with others?
  • have you exchanged sex for drugs or money?
  • have you been diagnosed with or sought treatment for another sexually transmitted disease?
  • have you been diagnosed with or treated for hepatitis or tuberculosis?
  • have you had sex with someone who could answer yes to any of the above questions or someone whose sexual history you don’t know?
How does it work?

Once your order has been processed, you will be sent a blood sample collection kit. You collect your sample from the comfort of your own home and send it right back to our CLIA-certified partner laboratory. We analyze your sample and inform you that your results have been uploaded to your confidential account on our secure website.

What guidance will I get along with my results?

Following the completion of the analysis, you will receive a lab report that includes explanations for the analyzed markers and details on potential symptoms linked to imbalances. Additionally, we strongly advise that you discuss the results you receive from us with your healthcare provider or practitioner.

Moreover, additional information can be found on our website, particularly within various test categories, “health conditions,” and the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) section. If you have any further inquiries, please feel free to reach out to us by sending an email to contact@verisana.com.

You will be the sole person with access to this information, and we guarantee that we will not disclose your information to any unauthorized third parties.

Test measures
For the HIV Test we analyze:
  • HIV
HIV

HIV, which stands for human immunodeficiency virus, is a bloodborne pathogen that can be transmitted through unprotected anal or vaginal intercourse and by sharing syringes contaminated with HIV. This virus impairs the immune system by damaging crucial cells responsible for combating diseases and infections. The symptoms of HIV vary depending on the stage of the disease, with most individuals experiencing flu-like symptoms during the acute phase. Following the initial symptoms, there is often a prolonged asymptomatic period before HIV progresses to AIDS. While there is no cure for HIV, early diagnosis allows for treatment with medication that can effectively suppress the virus.

Any Questions?

Here are some of the most frequently asked questions regarding this test. Your question is missing? Please contact us at:

How often should I get tested for HIV?

Routine HIV testing is recommended for everyone aged 13 to 64. However, if you engage in high-risk behaviors or meet the criteria mentioned earlier, more frequent testing may be necessary.

What activities increase the risk of HIV transmission?

Activities that elevate your risk include having unprotected anal or vaginal sex with an HIV-positive partner, having multiple sex partners, sharing needles when injecting drugs, exchanging sex for drugs or money, being diagnosed with or treated for other sexually transmitted diseases, hepatitis, or tuberculosis, and having sexual contact with someone who meets any of these criteria.

Can HIV be cured?

Currently, there is no definitive cure for HIV, but with proper medical care and early diagnosis, HIV can be effectively managed with medication that helps suppress the virus.

Why do most HIV infections occur when the carrier does not even yet know about their infection?

Two to four weeks after a fresh HIV infection, there is a particularly large number of viruses in the blood, since the virus reproduces very rapidly at the beginning. Most people do not yet know about their infection at this point and can therefore not warn their sex partners accordingly. That is why most of the transmissions take place in this phase.

Can I get HIV from injections lying around?

No. No case is known worldwide in which a person has been infected by a needle lying around, for example in a sandpit. Infections with hepatitis B and hepatitis C, however, are very much possible. In such case, you should definitely be examined by a doctor.
