HIV/AIDS rapid test with blood drop

VCT and HIV testing: top five facts

Getting tested for HIV is a scary experience. Even if you are certain not to be infected, the 15-minute wait for the result can be excruciating.

​Also, there are also other worries: Are the tests reliable? What about your privacy? What happens if you are positive? We’ve got the answers for you.

  1. VCT: How does it work?

    Voluntary counselling and testing (VCT) is one of the most popular ways of getting tested for HIV. It’s fast: the results are usually available within 15 minutes.
    The counselling happens over two sessions, one before the results and a quick one after. You will discuss how one gets HIV/AIDS, how the test works, and what to do once you know your status.
    If you are negative, the focus will be on avoiding the disease in the future. If you are positive, the discussion will centre on avoiding infecting others, treatment possibilities and taking care of yourself.
    Together, the sessions shouldn’t take more than 30 minutes and are usually free of charge.

  2. What are your rights?

    You have the right to know your status and going to a VCT centre is an easy way to do it. Still, many people worry about whether other people will learn about their status. But no: just like a doctor, a VCT counsellor is obliged to protect your privacy.
    Even the government won’t find out about your status. VCT centres don’t pass any names to the Ministry of Health, only the total number of HIV-positive test results. The fact that you are not given your results in writing is another way VCT centres make sure that your results stay private. The counsellor might pass on your name to the HIV clinic they refer you to – but these clinics are also obliged to protect your privacy.

  3. The test

    The test involves pricking your finger for a drop of blood. Or alternatively, your mouth’s insides are gently scraped with a cotton swab to get cells. These samples are then put on the test stick. Meanwhile, the counsellor will explain how to interpret your results. These rapid tests are very accurate, but very occasionally they show so-called false-positive or discrepant results. That’s why every person who tests positive has to have additional blood taken for more rigorous testing that takes an additional two weeks.

    The test result doesn’t change if you have taken ARVs, PEP or any other medication since the test doesn’t test the presence of the virus itself, but rather the HIV-antibodies produced by your immune system.

  4. I’m positive. Now what?

    Getting a positive test result is a shock. You will feel angry, scared, worried, terrified, or numb. But it’s important to talk and listen to the counsellor. They provide important information on your next steps. They will also refer you to an HIV clinic. You should definitely go there since healthcare providers can make sure that you live positively for a long time.
    You will also need to tell your partner and other relevant people about your status. This is called ‘disclosure’. It’s important to remember that the diagnosis says nothing about you as a person. You aren’t a bad person just because you caught a disease.

  5. I may have been infected. What do I do?

    If you think you may have been infected, you should immediately see a doctor to get PEP (post-exposure prophylaxis), a drug regime that can protect you from infection. Then, unfortunately, you have to wait. It takes about 6 to 12 weeks for your body to react to the virus in the body. Only then, will your immune system have produced enough antibodies to show up on a test. This is called the ‘window period’.
    If you get tested before that, the test might be negative even if you are infected. So you need to wait three months before you get tested. If that test is negative, you still need to get another test three months later. Only if both tests are negative, can you be sure that you are not infected.

More tips for testing:

  • Your VCT counsellor can also give you advice on family planning and general STD prevention. Don’t hesitate to ask any questions.
  • If you are pregnant, you should always get tested for HIV. In case you are HIV-positive, it’s best to know as early as possible so steps can be taken to protect the baby.
  • Liverpool VCT in Nairobi offers testing for people with special needs, such as PWDs. To visit their center, find directions here
  • If you don’t know where to find a VCT centre, use our ‘Find a Clinic‘ section.
  • Everybody is scared to get tested. That’s normal. Just tell yourself that not knowing your status is much scarier than knowing it.
  • You can get tested together with your partner in special couple’s sessions. It might be less scary that way and you can learn together how you can avoid getting infected.

    HI! is it possible for a hiv positive girl 2 have a baby with a negative guy? and how can one know the status of a partner who is on arvs becoz i heard that they test negative

    1. Hi John, the result of the
      Hi John, the result of the test is not changed by the ARVs. The test looks for antibodies to the HI-virus, and they will be present regardless of ARVs, as your immune system starts producing them when you are first infected. As for getting pregnant, check out what our sex-expert Valentine has to say about this here:
      Let us know if you have any more questions!

  2. Thanks for the information.
    Thanks for the information. what if you are infected u get opportunistic infection like cronic fungal & u have all signs of aids. Is there a probability of recovering after taking arvs & which can be the estimated time for this.

    1. Hi John, you will never fully
      Hi John, you will never fully recover from HIV/AIDS, even on ARVs. If you get opportunistic infections, that means that the virus has already progressed to AIDS, as you said. Ideally, a patient should start ARVs before he or she gets AIDS. And the ARVs won’t treat the opportunistic infections (OIs), they should be treated on their own. Taking ARVs should prevent you from getting OIs for a while, as they keep your immune system functioning. Getting OIs shows that the immune system can no longer do its job properly. Once a patient is on ARVs and on medication for the OIs, he or she should feel better, but it all depends on which OI and how far the immune system is able to recover, so a prediction is really difficult, also regarding time. Sorry we can’t give you a straight answer, but the recovery from the OI and the time needed depends on too many different factors and will differ from patient to patient. Does this help?

    1. I am so sorry to hear that,
      I am so sorry to hear that, Solo.
      If all the tests so far have been negative, then you are indeed negative. You have been quite lucky. Please use condoms or get tested with your new partners from now on, to avoid getting infected after all. Good luck!

    What are the first signs of HIV in what period of time after infection???

    1. Hi Stano, HIV infection comes
      Hi Stano, HIV infection comes in three stages. The first phase last about 2 to 4 weeks right after infection. Some people develop flu-like symptoms: fever, joint pain, fatigue, headaches, sore throat and/or rashes. Those are the first symptoms, and some people don’t even feel them. Then, there won’t be any symptoms for an average of 8 years. That’s the second stage, the latency stage. The last stage is AIDS. That means that your body’s immune system is so damaged that it can’t fight off infections anymore. That’s when you get so-called opportunistic infections. Those are illnesses that normally would be fended off by your immune system, but because that’s not working properly, it can’t. Unless someone is on medication, the last stage will last about two years. If antiretroviraldrugs are taken, your immune system will be supported, and the life expectancy is then much longer. Does this answer your question?

    1. Hi there,

      Hi there,
      the test itself takes about 15 minutes, including the counseling half an hour.
      After you had unprotected sex, you should wait around six weeks to go to a VCT. In that time period, your body should have made enough antibodies to be detected by the test, if you are positive. It is however advisable to go again after another six weeks (three months after the unprotected intercourse) to make absolutely sure you are negative. Does this help?

  7. We have signs like fever
    We have signs like fever,headaches,joint pain,fatigue,how will you differentiate from common malaria?Rashes are common where specifically appears on body?

    1. Hi Romeo,

      Hi Romeo,
      if you have those symptoms, you need to see a doctor. You should not try to differentiate yourself, only blood tests can show what is really going on!
      Good luck!

  8. is it possible to have sex
    is it possible to have sex with a hiv + lady and not infected without using a condom.

    1. Yes, Charly, it is possible.
      Yes, Charly, it is possible. Not every sexual contact with an infected person leads to infection, especially if her viral load is low, and you don’t have any wounds or STDs.
      However, that doesn’t mean there is no risk. You might be fine once, or even ten or a hundred times, but you could also get infected next time. So always use a condom!

  9. am worried, i met this lady
    am worried, i met this lady she lied to me that she works in a restaurant only to find out that she really works in a pub, bt now the prblm is, we had alot of kisses, infact deep kisses, can that one still pass the virus, bt i have not said that i know her status…

    1. Anne,

      to make sure that you didn’t get infected (if he was positive), it would be best to take an HIV test, if it has been six weeks since you had sex with him.

  16. Hi love matters,I have had
    Hi love matters,I have had sex with a partner whom we have not tested for our status for one month…almost on daily basis but come to think of it,I urged her that we go for a test and she refuses.Only to find that she only goes and comes to show me a minor-cut on her middle finger that she has been tested and found negative.She says that she gets tested it at public hospital Kitengela,Nairobi but the experts do not issue any HIV TEST CARD nor accept the one being tested even capture the results with his/her handset for partners approval.Advise please am so scared upon the matter.

    1. Rashid,

      VCT is always confidential. There usually aren’t records of the status; that has lots to do with the stigma around it.
      What worries me is that you don’t seem to trust her, yet you have unprotected sex. And you don’t know your own status, isn’t it?
      So get tested, and until you know your results, use condoms!

      Hi Mark, The best way to get to know your HIV status is to get a HIV test. There is also now way to know if the girl you were with was HIV negative or positive and whether the pill she took was an ARV pill other than asking her to clarify. While there is a risk getting infected if there were cuts on your finger you will only get to know once you get tested. Lastly, one can leave a health and productive time even after turning HIV positive by choosing to leave positively. Start by getting to know your HIV status and then proceed based on your status.

    Hi Juliet, Testing kits used at VCT centers are accurate considering two different kits were used. They test for presence of HIV and nothing else. It is important that your partner seeks comprehensive care and treatment and that you begin to take steps to prevent transmission of HIV. There are options you can choose from including the use of Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP) which are drugs taken daily by the HIV negative partner to reduce the risk HIV transmission.

      Hi Kylie, it is great that you are taking initiative. Perhaps you can talk to your parents about why you are considering to take a HIV test, they maybe okay with it.

    1. Hey Sandra, Vaginal odor may…

      Hey Sandra, Vaginal odor may vary throughout your menstrual cycle and may be especially noticeable right after having sex. Normal sweating also can cause a vaginal odor. If you have vaginal odor without other vaginal symptoms, it’s unlikely that your vaginal odor is abnormal. Common causes of abnormal vaginal odor include bacterial infection and hygiene issues. If you’re concerned about an abnormal or persistent vaginal odor, see your doctor and have the doctor perform a vaginal exam, especially if you have other signs and symptoms such as itching, burning, irritation or discharge. To minimize vaginal odor; wash your external genital area. During regular baths or showers, use a very small amount of mild, unscented soap and lots of water and avoid douching since all healthy vaginas contain bacteria and yeast. The normal acidity of your vagina keeps bacteria and yeast in check. But douching can actually upset this delicate balance. Have a look at this article for more information;-

      Hello Sharon, so sorry about this. You may want to begin by getting to know your HIV status and then also get your baby tested. Usually, any health facility should be able to provide you with a HIV test including information on what steps to talk after learning your status and that of your child. If uncertain, have a look at the following article for more options in Kenya. Lastly, it is important that you discuss with your health provider the way forward depending on the outcome of your test.

    1. Hello Korir, there is…

      Hello Korir, there is nothing one can do to avoid getting infected if they have unprotected sex with a person who is HIV positive. The way to protect oneself is to use protection, in this case condoms. It’s only by chance that one will have unprotected sex with a HIV positive person and they don’t get infected. The results you received are accurate since with the current HIV testing kits one can determine their true HIV status after just 14 days from the date of exposure. If indeed the other person was HIV positive, then it was just by chance that you didn’t get infected and you need  to protect yourself in future by using condoms correctly and consistently. Check out the following article;-

      Hello Teflon, Post Exposure Prophylaxis (PEP) can only work when taken within the first 72 hours after one has been exposed to to HIV.

      Hi Josh, a rush could mean anything including a mild irritation. It is thus not the best way to determine ones HIV status. Getting a test done is the best way to do this. There are sold testing kits that are sold at selected pharmacies. Do check with your preferred pharmacy to see if you will be able to find the kits.

    Hello Doc,
    I had an unprotected sex with a lady I barely knew. 2 weeks after, I had penile discharge,and thought I had caught gonorrhea, and treated it using antibiotics. Meanwhile, I developed oral thrush, and was having some flu-like symptoms, and started fearing that I had also caught HIV from her. I also developed this occasional burning sensation in my fingers, which I have been attributing to a possible infection. I ran a series of tests and got an HBsAg +ve result. But after running several HIV tests: fourth generation ELISA antigen/antibody test at 9 weeks and 5 days after the exposure, non-reactive at 0.14; antibody test at 12 weeks (84 days), negative; antibody test after 90 days, negative. I am recently having some flu-like symptoms and confused. Please, are the tests enough to rule out HIV?

      Hello Yusuf, so sorry to hear you are having problems doing this together. The truth is, for a lot of people getting tested is scary. Have a conversation with her about her possible fears. You could also just go to the VCT for the counselling and go for testing at a later date.

      Hi Khosa, 

      I say do what makes you happy! It could be that he has not noticed you thus you can start giving some hints. Do not be shocked if he does not feel the same way. If you can make the first move, then go for it, some men are actually attracted to women who can start conversations and express themselves. However you choose to approach this, be open to either a yes or a no. Good luck!
