Testing for HIV is the only way to know for sure if you have the virus that causes AIDS. Many people do not have any symptoms and can live for many years without knowing they have the virus. Testing at Miracle of Love for HIV is quick, easy, painless, confidential and FREE.

HIV Testing:

Miracle of Love provides the free confidential HIV testing with Clearview which is a rapid test that uses one drop of blood by pricking the finger with a lancet and results given in 20 minutes. If the test results are *Reactive or preliminary positive, then a confirmatory test is done with an OraSure test.  This test is done with oral swab device between the lower cheek and gum for 2-5 minutes and the swab is sent to a laboratory for the screening of the HIV antibodies and results come back in 2 weeks.

Interpretation of Test Results:

REACTIVE- This result means that HIV antibodies have been detected in the specimen. However, a result cannot be confirmed POSITIVE until the OraSure confirmatory test has been administered by Miracle of Love staff and analyzed through a laboratory.

NEGATIVE NON/REACTIVE- This result means that antibodies were not detected in the blood at the time of testing. However, this does not completely rule out the possibility of infection with HIV if you may have come in contact with blood, semen, vaginal fluids, or breast milk of an infected person within the last 3 months.
