Greetings. Your question is highly appreciated. However, the following description regarding the query is a general description to your current condition. Click on this link (DoctorOnCall) to converse with our doctors for further personalised explanation.

How long it takes for HIV test results to come back will depend on the type of test you are taking. If you’re taking a rapid test, you will be given your results within 20 minutes.

Other types of tests will be sent to a laboratory and it may take between a few days and a few weeks for you to receive a final result.

These tests are very reliable, but if your result comes back positive, you should have a second confirmatory test to double check. If this is also positive, you will get an HIV diagnosis, after which you can start treatment.

To further explore into your condition accurately, further information via discussion is required before reaching a conclusion. Therefore, it is suggested that you refer this to a medical doctor.
