Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
I am sorry to hear about all you have had to undergo
Tests for HIV are available which can tell you earlier than 3 months about your HIV status
I went to my local doctor before the police but no blood tests were done.
Is it too early to test for HIV etc? I am going to a drop in clinic tomorrow.
It is too early to test for HIV
Commonly used 4th generation duos test can be done at 4 weeks and that is pretty accurate.If negative no repeat test is needed
OK should I still go tomorrow to do other tests?
Yes you should go to get assessed.Testing for other diseases will need to be done later.
If you have been assessed already you may not need to visit a doctor tomorrow
Even for HIV there are certain tests which can be done earlier but these tests are not easily available but you can certainly discuss the possibility of having these tests with your doctor
OK I have had no blood tests done but they did swabs of my mouth and vagina just in case as I have no memory. Should I go for other tests tomorrow as my doctor only had a 10 minute slot with me and was a duty doctor that was very busy?
You need to have a detailed discussion with your doctor therefore it would be better to visit your doctor.
Ok I think I will go to the clinic tomorrow as if I book an appointment with my doctor I will only get a 10 minute one again.
Thank you for your help
Thanks and best of luck
Hope that everything turns out to be good
Thank you. I am pleased I can find out sooner
