HIV

What is it?

HIV stands for Human Immunodeficiency Virus.  It is a sexually transmitted disease which affects the immune system and can potentially cause an infected person to be easily prone to infections and certain types of cancer.

AIDS (Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome) is a result of untreated HIV infection, which usually develops in 8-10 years after initial infection.  There are two types of HIV: HIV-1 and HIV-2.  In the United States, HIV-1 is more prevalent than HIV-2. 

Who is at risk?

HIV can be transmitted by blood, blood products, sexual fluids, and breast milk.  Most people are infected by sexual contact, birth to an infected mother, during breastfeeding, or from sharing contaminated needles and syringes. The virus is more likely to be transmitted in men who have sex with men (MSM) than in heterosexual intercourse.

What are the signs and symptoms of HIV?

It is possible that in the first stages of HIV, no signs or symptoms will be apparent.

Later, signs and symptoms may include:

  • Enlarged lymph nodes
  • Weight loss
  • Chronic diarrhea for more than 1 month
  • Fever for more than 1 month
  • Bacterial infections such as Tuberculosis
  • Other unusual illnesses and cancers

Testing

Anyone who is concerned about HIV exposure should be tested. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) recently recommended that everyone between the ages of 13-64 be tested at least once. People at higher-risk should be tested at least annually for HIV. Testing is done by a simple blood test and is important to prevent the spread of HIV to others. e7 Health has three types of HIV tests:

Instant HIV test. This third-generation test has the benefit of knowing negative results in 20 minutes. The sample can be taken from a single finger stick or blood test. It is used to detect antibodies to HIV-1 and HIV-2. If test results are indeterminate, we will send a sample to the laboratory for confirmation testing at no additional cost.

HIV Antigen/Antibodies test.  This fourth-generation test looks for both HIV antibodies and antigens.  If you are infected with HIV, an antigen called p24 is produced even before antibodies develop.  This test can detect HIV 2 to 6 weeks from the time of exposure.  If your test results are negative during this window period, you should be retested 3 months after your possible exposure.  The results of the HIV Antigen/Antibodies test are usually available within 2-3 business days.

Aptima HIV test (Early detection HIV). This test is approved for the early diagnosis of HIV-1 infection. It can detect HIV as soon as 9-11 days after a potential exposure.  The results are usually available in 3-5 business days.

Treatment

There are treatment options for people infected with HIV that can help to have a normal and long life, although there is not yet a cure.  Antiretroviral therapy (ART) is the current recommended treatment for HIV.  This involves taking a regimen of medications daily and helps the body fight off life-threatening infections and cancer. This treatment is usually prescribed and monitored by a specialist in HIV or Infectious Diseases.

It is important for HIV infected individuals to have vaccinations against vaccine-preventable diseases because of being more prone to those illnesses. e7 Health offers all vaccines available in the USA, except for the COVID-19 vaccine.

Things you should do to prevent transmitting HIV to others include:

  • The only sure way is to abstain from sex
  • Correct and consistent use of latex condoms can reduce the risk for transmission; however is not 100% effective
  • Use protection during oral sex such as condom or dental dam
  • Tell others you have HIV such as people you have had sex with or are planning to have sex with
  • Don’t share needles, donate blood or plasma, share razors, or share sex toys

One in every five people in our country has contracted a Sexually Transmitted Disease.  According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC) there are 20 million new infections in the United States every year. Do not become a statistic; know the facts about Sexually Transmitted Diseases.

Most Sexually Transmitted Diseases have little to no warning signs or symptoms; the only way to know for sure is by testing.  If symptoms are present it might be more serious than you think.  Symptoms can vary greatly including but not limited to:

  • Dark color or heavy odor in urine
  • Discharge from genitals
  • Abnormal spots or rash
  • Burning during urination
  • Bumps, warts or blisters on genitals
  • Pain during sex or urination

Sexually Transmitted Diseases have many misconceptions as they have no discrimination as to sex, race, age, sexual orientation or religion. The facts are simple: Sexually Transmitted Diseases are transmitted by sex regardless of mode of transmission (i.e. oral, anal, or vaginal). The only fool proof way to avoid a Sexually Transmitted Disease is through abstinence.  STDs can still be spread even with the use of a condom. Get tested and do it often so you do not spread what can be prevented.

There are billions of dollars spent in the United States health care system each and every year in the treatment of Sexually Transmitted Diseases. Prevention and testing are necessary to prevent possible lifelong chronic health issues. What is your piece of mind worth?

Vegas STD Testing offers discrete, private and confidential testing for Syphilis, Chlamydia, Hepatitis, Herpes, Gonorrhea, and HIV/AIDS. Our highly trained staff is here to ensure all privacy laws and HIPAA regulations are followed. You are much more likely to contract HIV when one or more STDs are already present. Even after treatment, there is no guarantee that a Sexually Transmitted Disease is gone without retesting.

Vegas STD Testing has two locations to serve you in the Las Vegas Valley, both with convenient freeway access. Our Northwest location is in the Rainbow Promenade across from the Best in the West Shopping Center off of Lake Mead and US-95. Our Southwest location is on the corner of Windmill and Bermuda, minutes away from Blue Diamond and I-15. We are here to serve you five days a week Monday through Friday from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm. Payments are due at the time of testing. For your convenience, we accept cash, Visa, Master and debit cards. No appointment is necessary. Walk-ins are always welcome at both of our locations.
