The idea of an HIV diagnosis strikes fears into the hearts of many sexually active people. There is still no cure, and many still believe that it carries a death sentence. With the right treatment and care, HIV is manageable.
The first step towards that is a positive diagnosis from HIV tests. It is important that anyone at risk of HIV transmission receives a test.
The problem for many is that the process seems daunting and few know what to expect. Some go in with false expectations of long, invasive procedures where their sexual history will be carefully scrutinized. This is not the case at all. HIV tests can be simple, straightforward processes.
