Why test for the HIV Early Detection
HIV is a type of virus that can affect the immune system of the human body and attack the cells. Those are responsible for looking out for any infection in the body. But once the virus enters the body, those cells get affected and are unable to fight against any infection that can lead to any disease.
The virus enters the body through different sources. It can be through vaginal and rectal fluid, blood semen and breast milk. Thus, it is a communicable disease. If an already infected person do not take the test on time, might have chances of development of the advanced stage of HIV which is AIDS. This makes the urgency of taking the HIV Early Detection test. It is to be taken after 7 days of suspected exposure meaning if you recently had a sexual intercourse. This test helps to diagnose HIV 1 which is caused due to RNA PCR virus.

Also, this test is known as the fourth generation test that is responsible for detecting p24 antigen and antibodies for both NIV 1 and HIV 2. The window period of this test is between 7 to 10 days of suspected exposure.
Every person desires to be disease free and a healthy person. Hence, if you are sexually active with more than 1 partner and want to lead a life without suspicion and doubt opt for this test for your self-relief.
