These tests are highly accurate and can provide preliminary results in 20 minutes.* There is no appointment necessary to be tested. *The OraQuick test is more than 99% accurate at detecting HIV antibodies if they are present. The body can take 3-6 months to start producing these antibodies after the contraction of HIV. Someone who has contacted HIV may not test positive for up to 6 months and certain medications can cause even more of a delay. During your testing session, you will be asked about these specific medications. It is important to be honest about your medical history.

These tests are highly accurate and can provide preliminary results in 20 minutes.* There is no appointment necessary to be tested. *The OraQuick test is more than 99% accurate at detecting HIV antibodies if they are present. The body can take 3-6 months to start producing these antibodies after the contraction of HIV. Someone who has contacted HIV may not test positive for up to 6 months and certain medications can cause even more of a delay. During your testing session, you will be asked about these specific medications. It is important to be honest about your medical history.
