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 INSTI which is a rapid test that uses a small amount of blood by pricking the finger with a lancet and results given in 1 minute.

If the test results are Reactive or preliminary positive, then a confirmatory test is done through a blood draw. The blood sample is sent to a laboratory for the screening of the HIV antibodies and results can take 2 weeks.

What to expect at your HIV testing session
  • Questions about your exposure risk and history
  • HIV and STI education and treatment options
  • PrEP information
  • Rapid HIV test
  • Discussion about results and window period

Interpretation of test results:

This result means that HIV antibodies have been detected in the specimen. However, a result cannot be confirmed POSITIVE until a blood draw or a Ora Sure mouth swap confirmatory test has been administered by a Miracle of Love staff and analyzed through a laboratory.

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.

No appointment necessary, services are conducted first come, first serve.
