What do the test results mean?
A negative test result means that there were no traces of HIV in your bloodstream. A positive result means that the HIV virus was detected in your bloodstream. However, a positive result does not essentially mean that you have AIDS.
Is HIV curable?
Although HIV is not curable, it can be treated with the use of antiretroviral drugs. If the HIV infection is detected at an early stage in the body, the onset of AIDS can be prevented. HIV compromises the immune system of the body, and makes it weak. This essentially makes a person more prone to other diseases and infections. Therefore, HIV positive tested patients are recommended to maintain a healthy lifestyle, and remain disease-free to enjoy a long life, despite being affected by HIV.
Who should use HIV RNA testing?
Going by the statistics, substance abusers, gays, bisexuals, people living in poor conditions, and young people in the age group of 13-29 years of age are generally more prone to catching HIV infection. They are usually the ones who engage in practices such as unprotected sex, or sharing of needles. People falling into these categories should get themselves tested for HIV every year.

There are an estimated 1.4 million HIV infected people, living in the USA alone. More than 50,000 new infections are diagnosed every year across the country. In the face of such high statistics, there is a very high chance that your sexual partner might carry the HIV virus. If you recently had unprotected sex with your sexual partner, then it is imperative that you take an HIV test within 9-11 days of the exposure. Further, if you are unsure of the sexual health of your partner, you should take the 10-Test Panel test to rule out the possibility of all STDs.
