Preparation Before Taking An HIV Test?
I want to ask … when I want to test for HIV … there is an explanation from the doctor here, he said that the HIV test is less accurate when using corticosteroid drugs … what I’m asking is that corticosteroid drugs are ingested tablets or ointments that can affect the test results … r He said that during the HIV test he didn’t need any special preparations. So confused …
HIV testing can be done without looking at the history of using corticosteroids, either oral or ointment. If you still have doubts about the results of the HIV test that you have done, you can do a follow-up examination directly to a doctor or a special clinic that provides this special HIV test consultation service.
There are quite a number of types of HIV tests that can be used for follow-up tests, generally higher generation tests, which will cost more.
That's our explanation, hope it can help.
