No HIV test is only for HIV, not other stds

Thanks for contacting HCM. HIV tests are accurate and if negative I would recommend repeating the HIV test again in 3 months to be sure you are negative.

Hi, testing for HIV is recommended at 14 days, 1 -2 months and 4-5 months of age. The test must look for presence of virus and not antibody. If 2 tests are positive, baby is positive, if 2 are negative baby is negative. However if breast feeding by positive mother, more tests may be needed even after 5-6 months till breast feeding is going on. Hope this helped. Dr Madhuri Bagde Consultant ObGyn
