What is HIV Testing?

HIV testing is used to detect the presence of HIV, or the human immunodeficiency virus. This virus causes an infection that is transmitted from person to person via bodily fluids like semen, vaginal fluids, blood and breast milk. HIV attacks your immune system, making it easier for you to get sick and even die from infections that your body could otherwise fight off. HIV-positive individuals may or may not develop an AIDS infection.

Normally, scheduling testing can include speaking to multiple people about your intention for an HIV test, requiring your personal information to be disclosed. At Priority STD, we value your privacy and your time. Our online scheduling system makes it easy to locate an HIV testing facility in your area so you’re in and out without hoops, hurdles or judgement.

What everyone should know about HIV testing.

How HIV Testing Works

HIV tests are usually performed at a healthcare facility, although there are certain at-home tests, and consist of a simple blood, saliva or urine test.1 However, we know swabbing is an often uncomfortable experience that everyone would rather do without—given the chance. That’s why Priority STD only requires a simple blood test to accurately identify an HIV infection.

Once your test is completed, results will be available within 24 to 72 hours through a secure, private online portal. Upon a positive HIV test result, treatment recommendations and support resources are provided as well.

Our Tests are FDA Approved and Performed in CLIA Certified Labs

Have Questions?

To get same day testing, simply purchase your lab order either online from our website or over the phone with one of our care counselors. Once your order has been placed, you can get tested immediately at any of our local and discreet collection facilities without an appointment. No other patients at the testing center will know your reason for visiting other than to give a routine urine and blood sample.

Your test results are accessible through a secure login unique to your order, updated 24 hours a day including partial results. Once your final results are available, you’ll be notified by email discreetly. Test results are expedited as a rush order and typically process just 24-72 hours after visiting the collection facility. If you have questions about your results or require a treatment consult, our care counselors are just a phone call away. Nothing will ever be sent to your home or healthcare provider to respect your privacy.

We understand that STD testing can be an embarrassing experience. We utilize Quest Diagnostics collection sites that are discreet and nondescript. This means you will never be singled out for getting tested, and nobody in the lobby will know your reason for visiting. You will never be sent to a public clinic, health department, or doctors office.

All of the tests we offer are FDA approved and performed in CLIA certified labs to ensure the highest level of accuracy. Some STDs require that you wait a period of time after sexual contact before getting tested. Each disease has a different latency period, so understanding when to test is important. If you have questions, our care counselors are happy to walk you through the process, start to finish.

No fasting is required for any type of test we offer. If you are testing for chlamydia, gonorrhea, or trichomoniasis, please ensure that you have not urinated for at least one hour prior to visiting the testing center.

To use your health insurance, we are able to provide all of the necessary information to file a self-claim. We utilize Quest Diagnostics which is the largest lab network in the nation, therefore most healthcare providers will offer some form of reimbursement. We will never directly bill your insurance to ensure your results are completely private and kept off of your permanent health record.
