An Overview of HIV
It's estimated over 1 million people in the US are living with the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), yet approximately one fourth of those infected are unaware.

HIV is a sexually transmitted disease passed through vaginal, anal, and oral sex. It can also be spread through other bodily fluids such as blood and breast milk.

Since HIV is often asymptomatic, the only way to know whether one has HIV is through testing. Signs and symptoms are general in nature and can often mimic other health conditions. When present, early signs of HIV can include flu-like symptoms such as fatigue, fever, headache, and swollen lymph nodes.

HIV is most commonly tested using the ELISA test. The specific test administered by, a division of the Institute of Sexual Health, involves a blood sample to detect HIV antibodies. Our test is 99.9% accurate, the most sensitive test available and used by doctors and hospitals nationwide. Positive results can typically be detected within three months after exposure.

Routine testing for HIV is critical. HIV causes AIDS, the Acquired Immunodeficiency Virus, a potentially life threatening disease. Early detection and proper treatment can help delay or prevent the onset of AIDS.
