HIV Testing Atlanta
ACWC tests for HIV. HIV is caused by a virus that attacks the immune system. HIV is contracted by sexual contact and non-sexual contact such as shared needles, blood transfusions, or through consumption of breast milk from an infected mother to her child.
It is important to test for HIV as the virus is largely asymptomatic and highly contagious. Symptoms of HIV include but are not limited to: fever, headache, diarrhea, swollen lymph nodes, and fatigue. It is important to see a doctor if you are experiencing these symptoms as they could be underlying symptoms of other conditions. As such, HIV can be tested by blood samples. Our physician will take blood samples and send them to a lab, we will reach out and prescribe medication should the tests come back positive.
