HIV RNA Test is used to detect HIV infection at an early stage. You can take the HIV RNA Test 9-11 days post exposure to know your HIV status. The HIV RNA Test detects the genetic material i.e RNA directly in the blood that makes up HIV virus.
Unlike 4th generation HIV antibody tests that measure the level of antibodies in the blood that fight off HIV, an HIV RNA Test has the ability to directly detects the virus as soon it start appearing in the blood stream.
Doctor recommends this HIV Test over the antibody test because it has a shorter window period. It takes about 3 months to our body to produce enough antibodies that can be detected using an antibody test, but using the HIV RNA Test we can detect the infection as soon the virus appears in our blood. After 9-21 days of initial infection, there is enough genetic available in the blood that can be easily detected using the HIV early detection test.

This is called “acute retroviral syndrome”. During this stage a large amount of virus are produced in your body.

During this stage people suffering from HIV experience no symptoms or very few symptoms. During this stage the production of the virus becomes slow but it still remains active in your body and keep weaken our immune system.
AIDS is the last stage of HIV infection. This occurs when CD4+ cell counts drop below 200. As we know that AIDS is not treatable. People get AIDS after 10-15 years of initial HIV exposure.
