Get Tested for HIV and AIDS

by | Oct 11, 2019 | Get Tested

How can I tell if I’m infected with HIV?

The only way to determine whether you are infected is to be tested for HIV infection. You can’t rely on symptoms to know whether or not you are infected with HIV. Many people who are infected with HIV don’t have any symptoms at all for many years. Similarly, you can’t rely on symptoms to establish that a person has AIDS.
The symptoms associated with AIDS are similar to the symptoms of many other diseases. AIDS is a diagnosis made by a doctor based on specific criteria established by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). (Source: Centers for Disease Control – CDC).

What are the body fluids which can contain HIV?

  • Sexual fluids (semen and vaginal fluid).
  • Mucus from the vagina and anus.
  • Blood.
  • Breast Milk is infectious to a baby but is unlikely to be infectious to an adult.
  • Tears may be infectious, but this is more a theoretical caution than a likely route of actual transmission.
  • Saliva, spit, urine and faeces are NOT infectious for HIV.
