The Human Immunodeficiency Virus is tested in two ways:
The antibody test (1 to 3 months) : This is the commonest test for HIV. The body produces antibodies in the event of an infection. This test is, therefore, dependent on the responsiveness of the body’s immunity and thus it requires time before the immunity produces antibodies. HIV positive outcomes always need a reconfirmation by performing a second test. If the test is negative, it is advisable to carry out routine tests after every three months for someone who has a sexual partner.
Viral load(RNA) test (9 to 11 days) : This kind of test measures the magnitude of the HIV virus in the blood. However, they are not always accurate and are a bit expensive. After a positive outcome, another test should be carried out for confirmation.
‘Neisseria gonorrhoeae’ is the bacterium that causes gonorrhea. It is transmitted through intercourse or via any body fluid. Seeking treatment for gonorrhea can be tough since the symptoms do not occur in some people or they may take a lot of time before they appear. If a test shows positive results for gonorrhea, the right treatment is administered and another test should be done fourteen days after the end of the treatment.
This is a viral infection and is incurable. Negative tests call for another test after three months. However, retesting is not necessary if someone is positive.
