Only get tested two weeks after unprotected sexual contact. Do you want to measure lower concentrations of HIV? You can request this in the hospital, for example, by means of a PCR test.
What is HIV?
HIV is an STD that can occur among young people. It can be asymptomatic (without complaints ) or cause unpleasant complications that ultimately completely disable your immune system. This makes you susceptible to all kinds of infectious diseases. It is therefore important to have yourself tested after unprotected sexual contact.
You can do this quickly and easily and anonymously at Labplusarts.
If the screening is positive, you will subsequently receive a referral for a confirmation test. So you do not have to go to the doctor again to tell you that you have an STD. The referral will be digital for you
Can I test for HIV and get the results on the same day?
This is a ' Same Day' HIV test. You will receive the results within a few hours. Please note that this test is only reliable 15 days after unprotected sexual contact.
Where can I do this rapid HIV test?
This HIV screening can only be done at our location in The Hague. You must visit us for this.
What is the difference between an HIV screening and a confirmation test?
The HIV Same Day test is screening. You will receive the result with 99.6% specificity and sensitivity, as compared to an ELISA or Western Blot test. A confirmation test is the gold standard and therefore more expensive. It is recommended to take a confirmation test if the result is positive. You will also receive a referral from us if the screening is positive.
A positive HIV test requires treatment with antibiotics and partner warning. We will never do this ourselves, but advise you to warn your partners. If you want treatment, you no longer have to visit GP, but you can get a referral through us. For more information, see RIVM HIV guideline
