HIV Testing in the Philippines – What you need to know and what you must know.

HIV Testing in the Philippines – How to get tested.

The Department of Health now ranks Philippines as one of the countries that has the fastest growing HIV epidemic in the world with a prevalence rate of 5% nationwide. There is a 20-25% prevalence rate in Metro Manila and 15-20% prevalence rate in Cebu. This rate dwarfed the prevalence rate in South Africa, which has the largest population of HIV positive individuals in the world, with a mere 4.7%. Prevalence rate refers to the percentage of individual affected by the disease at specific time. With that in mind, we can say that right now, in a population of 110 Million Filipinos, there are 5.5 Million individuals currently living with HIV.

Mere 5 years ago when I started making this blog, The Philippines is a low prevalence country with less than 1% of the population affected by HIV. This rapidly growing epidemic if left uncontrolled will eventually make The Philippines at par with South Africa with 1 out 10 individuals affected with HIV. So what went wrong? As a nurse with 15 years experience handling HIV cases and working actively with HIV positive individuals, here are my personal conclusions, do take note that this conclusions are not even close with the official conclusion of the Department of Health on why HIV became a rapidly growing epidemic in The Philippines. I personally think that their conclusion is too traditional and not in touch with the modern activities of our youth.

  1. DOH says that the resistance of the Church to some forms of birth control is a contributing factor on the HIV epidemic right now. I say that HIV is most commonly seen in the young population. A population that makes their own decision and is rebellious to the church teachings. Though the Church could have cause some sort of contribution, I do believe that the lack of sex education in our school particularly to our youth is a more blameable culprit than the Church. Did you know that people ages 14 to 30 makes up the 95% of newly diagnosed HIV cases each month and the median age of affected individual for the last 5 years is just 28 years old?
  2. DOH says prostitution or sex for money is a contributing factor of the epidemic and should be eradicated. I say that, prostitution cannot be eradicated. Since the dawn of human civilization, there is prostitution and it is something that is very hard to control much less eradicated from our society. What DOH can do is to provide an ID system and free monthly checkup to our sex workers to protect them as well as the people that they serve. This will also encourage the client to only have sex with a “clean” sex worker. This will also further educate our sex workers on proper ways of protecting themselves from different sexually transmitted infection as well as unwanted pregnancy.
  3. DOH says that persons under 18 who wants to test for HIV should require parental consent. I say that, I have clients with HIV at age 13, 14, 15… and that is because of failure in health promotion. The accessibility of casual sex thru apps like Grindr and other dating apps makes it very easy for 2 complete strangers to have sex consensually and thus, spreading the virus like wildfire to our young and techie population. These individuals would never dare to ask their parents permission to go with them and get tested, our culture against premarital sex and our bigotry against the LGBT makes it impossible to do so. HIV testing should be accessible to ANYONE at ANY AGE on their own volition.

THE CURRENT STATISTICS (2017)

It is estimated that there 1,000 reported HIV cases per month since the 6 months of 2016. At that rate, we can assume that there are 30 to 50 reported HIV cases daily. This does not include unreported cases. Unreported cases are HIV positive individuals who do not know they are infected. The epidemic growth rate is about 200% per year. This means that if not controlled, we could see a tenfold growth of HIV cases (300-500 cases per day) within the next 10 years.

HOW TO GET TESTED: HIV TESTING IN THE PHILIPPINES

One of the most important thing to do to prevent transmission is knowing your status. HIV is a very controllable disease as long as it is detected early and has not yet done major damage to your organs most specially the Liver, Kidneys and the Brain. There are many ways of getting tested for HIV in the Philippines. We will discuss each of them, one by one including their advantages and disadvantages.

I. Hospitals

Testing by going to hospitals is one of the most common means of getting tested. There are 5 hospitals in our country that specializes with HIV counseling and testing as well as referrals in case you tested positive and needing further treatment. In no particular order: RITM, San Lazaro Hospital, St. Lukes Medical Center both in Quezon City and Global, Makati Medical Center and Medical City in Ortigas. Do take note that the cost for HIV testing is around 1,100 to 3,800 in the private hospitals I mentioned.

PROS: If done correctly, results are very accurate. This is also the only results acknowledged in various employment and immigration requirements.

CONS: There is always an issue with regards to privacy and confidentiality getting tested  in any hospital. Though privacy is protected by our health care professionals, there are many incidents of information leakage caused by poor protocol with regards to transfer of information such as students getting free access to medical records without permission or a slip of tongue during a conversation of one of the member of the health care team handling the HIV case. Hacking is another risk when it comes to electronically stored medical information and records of medication being dispensed from the Pharmacy and to whom.

When it comes to public hospitals, though uncommon, there are recorded cases of results being switched between patients. It is not unheard of that a certain person tested positive though in reality, he is negative simply because a specimen sample was incorrectly labeled with his name. Lapse in judgment and concentration of our overworked and underpaid medical professionals is the main culprit in most cases.

II. Free tests done by Volunteer groups

HIV Test Philippines
We have friendly, volunteer groups that do testing for free. You can call them and schedule a visit and let them know that you are interested in getting tested.

LOVE YOURSELF MALATE HUB
#1850 Leon Guinto Street, Malate, Manila.
Contact: 353-8922

LOVE YOURSELF ANGLO HUB
Unit 5, 3/F, Anglo Building, #715-A Shaw Boulevard, Mandaluyong City.
Contact: 0915-366-5683

PROS: Free and they offer counselling as well. Staff are very friendly, professional and trained.

CONS: Privacy and result confidentiality are concerns when it comes to free and public testing. Though trained, innocent conversations could lead to information leakage both consciously and unconsciously. There are cases wherein a Volunteer saw a recently positive patient in the mall and told his friend that “That guys just tested positive yesterday.”

III. HIV testing kits

HIV Testing in The Philippines Home Kit

Advanced home test kits like Fujibio HIV kit has 99.9% accuracy similar to that of Hospital based testing.

Testing kits are widely used as the main method in HIV detection in some hospitals and hygiene clinic. All free testing done by volunteer groups uses HIV test kits. HIV testing hubs also uses HIV kits. Medical missions and workplace testing will usually use HIV testing kits. They are easy to use with result at 99.9% accuracy seen in mere 10 minutes. The common brands in The Philippines are Fujibio and SD Bio. Fujibio is Japanese made while SD Bio is Korean made. Both should give an accurate result with 99.9% certainty similar to that of hospital based testing. Only Fujibio HIV test kits are the only one you can buy online.

PROS: Very easy to use and results are very accurate. I would personally recommend testing using test kits first as to give you an accurate idea of your status before going to the hospital. That way, you will know that you will test negative or positive in advance privately. It is also very convenient and you are assure that only you will know the result. Fujibio hiv test kits being sold online also offers free counseling.

CONS: Since the person that bought the kit will usually test himself or herself, Anxiety could lead to testing delay. Some people will contemplate for weeks before using the test kits and then eventually forgets that he bought one.

I TESTED POSITIVE. WHAT SHOULD I DO NEXT?

If you used any of my recommendations above in getting tested and you tested positive, DO NOT DESPAIR. HIV is a very controllable disease and achievement of undetectable viral load is the treatment goal. Living a normal life is very possible with HIV as long as treatment is started and adherence to the treatment regimen is established. We have 2 options in getting treated.

Research Institute for Tropical Medicine (RITM)

RITM is the premiere and the leading facility in The Philippines when it comes to antiretroviral drug distribution as well as treatment for HIV patients. This should be your first choice in obtaining confirmatory results and further treatment if the initial testing result was positive. RITM is more specialized than San Lazaro and could deal with serious HIV related complications such as Mycobacterium Bovis infection as well as cryptococcal infection of the brain.

For commuters:

  1. Take a bus or van going to Alabang.
  2. Look for the Muntinlupa Fire Station.
  3. Ride a UV express/van or a multicab with a Filinvest Ikot route in front of the Orange Building and Festival Mall just besides the fire station.
  4. Tell the driver to drop you off at RITM.

Total estimated fare cost: 60 -120 Pesos.
For private vehicles:

  1. Proceed to SLEX.
  2. Exit at Filinvest.
  3. Turn left after the toll gate.
  4. RITM is just at the right side.

Process:

  1. Ensure that you arrive before 7:00 A.M for baseline testing. You will not be entertained if you arrive late.
  2. Once inside, simply proceed to the ARG clinic.
  3. Register.
  4. Proceed to the cashier and pay 150 pesos for the orange patient sheet.
  5. Proceed to ARG and await for your name to be called.
  6. CD4 testing for positive patients are available after 1:00 P.M except during Wednesdays and weekends.
  7. Distribution of antiretroviral drugs are given monthly. Maximum supply for 1 month is dispensed at the given schedule.
  8. Drugs should be free and is subsidized by Philhealth.

The Thai Red Cross Research Center

If you have the budget of about 25,000 pesos every 6 months, a possible alternative is getting tested and treated in Thailand. The Thai Red Cross Aids Research Center is one of the most advanced HIV treatment facility in the world eclipsing RITM. They use the most advanced drugs that you need to only take once a day as compared to a cocktail of 2-3 medications that the Philippines still uses. Blood works such as CD4 testing is around 500 pesos and results are ready in 3 days. The medications used in TRCARC are the best medications available and is very cheap, it will only cost you about 10,000 pesos for your 6 months supply. This same medication costs about 80,000 per 1 month supply in the United States. It is cheaper in Thailand because it is subsidized by the Thai Government. You can only purchase 6 month supply of the drug as they will require you to come back every 6 months for monitoring your health status. This advanced medication is only taken once a day and has very little side effects. They look like Centrum tablets.

    Nagtest na ko ng pang 56th day ko at negative naman.rapid test po gamit ko sd bio. Ang pinagaalala ko lang ay may nararamdaman ako sa kilikili ko na masakit pero di naman bumubukol. At medyo makati balat ko sa chest.
    Ano po kaya ito?
    May chance p kaya magbago ang test ko?
    Balak ko magtest sa 10th week or 9th week na agad. Thanks po sa sasagot

    • Anne says:

      It depends..if 4rth gen gamit mo.its conclussive..3rd gen is recommend for 3 months up to six months..
      Kasi nagkaanxiety ako dati,lahat nang symptoms ay naranasan ko..nagtest ako for 3 months is negative then 6 months is negative..but i have still symptoms kasi hindi ako makapaniwala sa test..so pumunta ako sa ubang clinic NR again..after noon hindi ko inisip na may hiv ako so lahat nang symptoms ay nawala na,once maisip mo na may hiv ka mafeel mo sa yong body..kasi kadalasan na nagpossitive is walang symptomas..

      Im here kasi gusto akong makatulong sa inyo na naparanoid..

      • Channen says:

        Saan po ang maganda magpatest po yung accurate po? Paranoid na po ako. .

      • Whitey says:

        Hi anne lahat ba ng sintomas naramdaman mo? Kasi ako oo pa ulit ulit na sipon tapos nag
        Ka lagnat din ako pero mababa lang at isang araw lang yon ngayon may para akong May tonsillitis actually nag pa test nako
        December 18,2018 pero ilang days palng yong exposure ko nun at non reactive ang result
        Napaparanoid na kasi ako at ang hirap talaga kasi May anxiety narin ako gusto ko sana
        Mag pa test ulit kaso ang taga pa bago mag 3mos😢

        • Anne says:

          Yes po lahat nang sintomas nang hiv ay naramdaman ko like swollen lympnodes,joint and muscle ache,itchy skin,body pain,fever, except lang sa diarrhea..naramdaman ko yan kasi nag iisip ako na may hiv ako.tapos lagpas nang 3 months nag nonreactive then retest 3 months non reactive then 1 year of exposure non reactive again so ayan nagtanong ako sa mga expert nang hiv sabi niya ang test ngayon ay napakasensitive he said im hiv free..so nakamoveon na ako..
          Yong hiv ay hindi madaling matransmit mas madali pang matransmit ang hepa b..that base of my study.
          Kasi meron akong friend na nurse , sabi niya yong hiv ay hindi madali matransmit it depends yon sa immune system mo,pagmahina yong immune system mo ay madali kang maagapan nang virus pag malakas ang immune system mo ay hindi madali matransmit ang hiv kasi ang bacteria sa good immune system nang isang tao na malakas ang immune system ay lumalaban sa virus…and also that base of my study about hiv

          And yong hiv ay managable naman ..mas mabuti pang sakit na hiv kaysa cancer and diabetes..kasi ang hiv ay namumuhay ka nang normal wala namang mawawala sayo yong gamot na itinitake natin everyday ay kagaya lang sa vitamins na iinumin natin araw araw…

          I advise retest for 3 months para makahinga ka nang maluwag at iwasan mo nang magbasa nang mga sintomas sa net kasi kadalasan nang nagpossitive sa hiv ay walang simtomas..test lang ang makasagot .

          • Whitey says:

            Thank you anne na praning kasi ako nung napanood
            Ko yong mmk episode na seaman na may hiv doon
            Talaga nag umpisa ang lahat then may naka sex

            Sa medical nong may nangyari sa amin kaya hindi
            Na alis sa isip yong hiv kasi seaman yong sa MMK
            sa ngayon nililibang ko na muna
            Sarili ko hanggang sa maka 3mos ako naninibago
            Lang kasi ako sa nararamdaman ko ngayon
            Madalas ako mag ka sipon

          • Paulpaul says:

            2 weeks before I had sex nagkalagnat ako, sumakit yung bandang puson ko, masakit yung katawan ko tapos yung sa bandang testeticles ko nangangati na may tumutubong maliliit na bilog tapos pag kinamot mo magsusugat so yun nag paconsult ako tapos tinanong anong masakit sakin tapos kung may sugat ba ako.. sabi ko naman wala akong sugat tapos yun sabi ng doctor UTI lang daw kaya ayon tinake ko yung gamot within 1 week tapos nag ka side effect siguro sumakit yung tiyan ko nagkakakulani ako, singaw tapos minsan kapg umiihi ako may parang clear or colerless na liquid na kasama iniisip ko baka semen lang yon, tapos feel ko laging kapag pag kagising ko dudumi agad ako.

    • Lloyd says:

      90 days for 4th and 3rd gen ay may 1 percent pa…100 days 0percent and it conclusive base don sa link na pinasa….so for me better patest at 6 months then rest na sa pagiisip…wag na lumandi

    • kon says:

      most forums will tell nobody turned (+) after 6 weeks getting a (-) result.
      around 95% will turn (+) at 6 weeks so yang result mo is promising. trust your result.

      @lloyd the scale from the link follows the CDC guidelines on testing (hence the 3 months for both 4th gen and 3rd gen). Pero yang 4th gen (combo test) accurate yan after 28 days. tapos by 3 months it will most likely work as a 3rd gen test. kaya parang lumalabas same lang sila ng accuracy.

Dahil d naman ako gumagamit maliban sa wife ko. Pero may history akong Chlamydia last 2009. Hirap na hirap na po ako sa nangyari. Nasabi ko na rin sa misis ko. Takot akong mahawaan cya. Naghinaty ako sa result. Para c misis ipatest ko rin. Tanong ko lng po. may mga tulad po ba sa akin na sistwasyon ag nagative sa confirmation.

    • Lloyd says:

      Unang tanong kopo..bakit kayo naglaclamaydia?san nu nakuha un?im sure sa paggamit ng babae or sa sex….kahit 2009 pa yan kung until now eh hindi kapa tlaga magpatest…posibleng don mo nakuha yan…maswerye ka inabot kapa ng ganyan katagal…kita mo ang taas na ng score mo kase 1 lang positive kana nyan..

        • Anne says:

          Its possible sa chlamydia kasi base in my search..condom is not 100 percent safe..kailangan tama ang paagamit sa condom at maglagay nang lube..if you have chlamydia and then ang nakasex mo ay may infection din like gonorhea at chlamydia thats high risk sa hiv, base sa nasearch ko..kaya pag mayroon rayong infection dapat magpacheck agad.

          • Anne says:

            Not at all possitive sa screening ay possitive din sa confirmatory..baka may ibang virus na nahalo…that is why nagpossitive ka.
            Magpray ka sana negative sa confirmatory…

        • Lloyd says:

          Fof GEORGE:

          Balka ng aibang strand of virus ang nakita sa test pero dapat ung cd4 mo makuha agad para malaman ba kung bumaba ng husto or normal lang..kase kung normal baka ibang sakit yan.
          Parang imposible kase na yearly ka nagpapatest at ngayon ka lang nadetect..ibig sabihin may nakasex ka aside from your wife….lalo kung lasingnakipagsex..thats high risk kase dmo namalayan na nabutas or natanggal ang condom…jindi kase 100 percent nakakaprotect ang condom…pwede sya mapunit without knowing it kung hindi ka namn tlaga nagpay attention to it after sex..
          Ano ba trabaho mo?alam ko mga seaman kada medical meron hiv testing at mandatory sa ibang company but not to all kase may fremd ako seaman din pero hindi sila nagpapahiv test….
          Nakapagtataka lang kung san mo nakuha yan pero kung totoo ngang positive ka even sa confirmatory..baka don tlaga s amga nakasex mo na kahit may condom…pwede ka din kase mahawa kung sinipsip mo ung ano ng babae tapos may singaw ka or sirang ngipin…pwede pumasok ang virus don kahit precum palang sya.
          Ano2 pala ang mga naramdan mo?

          • Anne says:

            Thats true..kasi seaman maraming babae..yan ang nangyari sa bf ko dati.nagkainfection ako…kahit sabihin mong nagcondom kapa its not 100percent safe.kailangan ang condom gamitin nang husto at gumamit nang lube..

            George..baka naman may ibang virus yong nakahalo sa test mo..its impossible na ngayon lang madect ang virus..ang test ngayon ay napakasensitive..even my friend 2 months palang nadetect nang virus..hiv possitive na sya…

          Kasi last year na anxiety ako after unprotected sex ..lahat nang symptomas sa hiv ay naranasan ko..halos mabaliw ako saka iisip,at the time 2:a.m na ako makatulog..kasi nagsearch ako kung anong mga possible cure..until nasearch ko yong mga herbal na pampaboost nang immune system.3 months after nagpatest ako so negative ang result afyer 6 months negative again..so hindi ako kontento sa test ko nagtanong ako sa mga expert sa hiv..sabi nila ang test na ginagamit ngayon ay very sensitive daw..so accurate daw ang test ko..hindi porquet na may symptoms ako possitive na daw..once maisip mo na may hiv ka mafeel mo sa body mo.

  12. Cal says:

I was active on sex 2017-2018, may mga instances na unprotected, this month lang nagpa check up ako sa doctor sabi parang lead to TB daw ang paubo ko for past 2 weeks… napaparanoid npo ako….. kasi sa mga nababasa ko ang unang symptoms daw nang hiv is TB….. huhuhuhu… lord pls help me……. sana hindi ito hiv.. I don’t know what to do. Di parin ako nagpa hiv test… natatakot kasi ako……. help

    • kon says:

      taga saan ka ba? I cannot help you directly pero i know someone who could.
      drop your email address and I’ll contact you.

      • Cal says:

        May medication po kasi akong 2weeks sa possible TB po eh… after cguro nito, magpatest ako… pero takot na takot po ako… hindi ko kasi ito iniisip dati until may mga patalastas na about HIV… omg, ilang years po ba bago ma fall to aids?

        • kon says:

          AIDS na tawag pag yung CD4 mo ay below 200.
          depende sa tao kung gaano kabilis ang pag akyat sa AIDS.

          after ka pa nyan magpatest? if I were you, I’ll do it ASAP. Your life, your call.

          • Cal says:

            Hindi ko po kasi kakayanin pag positive ako… Nakakahiya po… Lahat apektado, work ,friends and family….. wala po talaga akong courage until now… ano kaya gagawin ko? Need advice please gulong2x na isip ko.

          • kon says:

            sigh. I’m already trying to help. the first step must come from you!

          • Cal says:

            Hi sir kon, balak ko pong magpatest sa loveyourself, pwede ba alias gagamitin dun?

          • kon says:

            good morning. pwede alias. been there na before.
            know their schedule first tapos agahan mo punta minsan madami nagpapatest.
            good luck.

        • Vee says:

          Hi Con, nag pa xray ka na ba? Or skin test? To make wure na may TB ka nga talaga?

          • Vee says:

            Typo. ‘Cal’ pala hindi con.

          • Cal says:

            Hi po, xray po.. sabi dun minimal linear opacities in the left apex.. Hindi ba ako inuubo pero phlegm na white nalang…

          • Vee says:

            La ka ring sputum test? Kasi ako nagka TB last year inadvice n doctor na mag pa HIv test grabe din kaba ko nun pero NR namn ang result ko until now nagpatest ako last jan. Nr pa rin naman.

            @Kon Pag ba may TB ibig sabihin ba nun may HIV na rin specially pag gay? Salamat.

          • kon says:

            di ako medical expert pero yang TB can be caught kahit walang HIV. At the same time there are people with HIV na walang TB, regardless of orientation.

            i think most of the cases na meron parehong HIV at TB ay yung “late” na nadiagnose. Again hindi ako expert so don’t take my word for it.

          • Cal says:

            Wala naman po akong lagnat kahit last year wala din po. Jindi rin po ako nangayayat… Natakot lang ako sa cough ko kasi last year di ako nagkaubo at all. Although yung ubo ko last 2 weeks hindi naman sya chronic na kada minuto ubo..di po.. light lang.. tapos yung plema pinapalabas ko lang, yung white sticky.. Hindi ko rin alam kung sa weather din ito ehh… Pag magpa HIV test ba ako, ok lang Yun kahit umiinom ako gamot for possible TB? Baka ma invalid

          • Vee says:

            Salamat sa sagot. Yan din yung mga nabasa ko sa internet at sinabi ng counselor na nakausap ko.

          • Vee says:

            Hi Cal. Nagpa test ako kahit nagtetake ako ng meds ko sa TB at sabi namn ang nakausap ko sa clinic ok lang namn daw yun. Kaya pa ring ma detect kung may HIV ka. Pero nagpatest ulit ako nung natapos ko na medication ko.

            Meron talagang hindi nangangayayat kahit may TB sila. Kaya dapat mong gawin ay magpatest. Kaw lang din tutulong sa sarili mo. Kesa namn mas lalong lumalaya kakaisip mo.

          • Cal says:

            Hi vee, thanks sa pagreply po. San ka nagpatest bang Hiv? Ginamit mo ba real name mo dun?

          • Vee says:

            Sa Hospital at Social hygine clinic ako nagpatest. Yes po, kailangan ilagay real name.

          • Lloyd says:

            Pwede ka magpatest na alias lang…wala namn makakaalam.
            Now if ever wag namn sana….kapag naging reactive ka..dapat mong magpatest ulet with your real name para mabigyan ka ng gamot.
            Dati ang kuya ko nagkatb…wala namn sya hiv.
            Kapag tlaga humina immune system mo kakaisip…daming kakapit na sakit same sa hiv.
            Uso trankaso ngayon kaya wag mong i associate lahat ng sakit sa hiv,hindi lang hiv ang sakit ng tao….iwasan mon akakabasa sa internet at madami jan lumang info or hindi tama.
            Get tested na…now na…walang epekto yang gamog na yan.
            Goodluck and Godbless..
            Pray kana din.

      Anyways..relaks and goodluck.
      Pray ka nadin na negative result mo.

    • kon says:

      hey good morning. i understand what you are feeling right now. first thing you need to do is calm down and know your risk level. whatever you and your partner did, no need to say it here. also please, anything you might feel in next few days is unlikely to be caused by HIV.

      testing options:
      PCR test – shortest window period at 2 weeks, pinakamahal (6-7k?)
      4th gen test – window period at 4 weeks, around 2k and available at private hospitals
      3rd gen test – the most common test out there, can be get free. window period of 3months.

    • Momoland says:

    Pakisagot naman sa tanong ko.

  20. Kyle says:

    Hi po, pag magpatest po ba sa hi precision bang hiv, pwede ba alias lang ang pangalan? I need to get tested po kasi eh.. how much din po Yun? Thanks sa magreply

    • Lloyd says:

      Sakin kase true name ko talaga.
      Im not sure kung pwede alias kase need ng ID mo.

      • Kyle says:

        Hihingi.an ka po nang Id? Kasi takot po ako sa confidentiality Eh, di ba batas na ito ngayon ba Pwede tumanngi? Sir yung hi precision po ba private clinic?

        • kon says:

          sorry for butting in Lloyd.
          Kyle–HP is a private clinic. You probably need to submit your name so you can claim your result by presenting an ID etc. Based from what I read here, the result could take a day. then pag irerelease na, the rule is only the name on your result can read it, not even the counselor can open it. you may not even show it on your post test counseling.
          yan ba yung concern mo?

          would you rather delay testing because of that? your call.

          • Worry says:

            Accurate po ba magpatest sa HP?

          • Lloyd says:

            Actually kon kse don ako nagpatest meron sila online result nman..kung gusto mo hardcopy pwede ka pumunta sa kanila amd request for it..un nga lang u need an id for that….yan ang experience ko sa hp…same lang namn result sa online..pwede mo din copy and paste then print.

  28. kon says:

    Hello all… ang kukulit din ng karamihan. yung iba, nagpapalit pa ng handle name–obvious na iisa din yung nagpost. Geez.

    Sana mabasa bago magpost.

    May nararamdaman? magpacheck up sa TOTOONG DOCTOR! Kung hindi mapakali, GET TESTED.

    contaminated kaya ng HIV yung lancet? — hindi.
    May isang nagworry about a certain diagnostic clinic, baka daw marumi yung needle, etc. Come on guys.

    Protected sex po, pero may *blah, blah* — kung tama yung pag gamit sa condom at HINDI nasira until the end of sex. You are cleared (from HIV), kung hindi GET TESTED for HIV and other STDs

    Nag test po ako ng 3 months (and up), pero *blah blah* — MOVE ON na po. PERIOD.

    May flu, tapos ilang araw lang from last sex — uso trangkaso ngayon.
    Ang totoong Flu-like symptom ng HIV, yung sobrang lala na kelangan ka na i-confine tapos may kasabay pa na ibang symptom.

    Sa mga nag-aantay ng window period, I wish you all the best!

    • kon says:

      Correction: move on lang pag NON REACTIVE at 3months up. Otherwise, proceed with your treatment 🙂

    • Lloyd says:

  32. Aski says:

    STD lang po ba pagka may dugo na lumalabas sa ihi? Di naman po ba sign ng hiv yun? Madalas na din po kasi ako lagnatin, 1st exposure ko po yun sa nameet ko lang and yunprotected sex po. May posibilidad po ba na mahawa din agad kahit sa unang sex palang?

  33. Lany says:

    I had unprotected sex last 2 nights with my classmate knowing namamakla po siya 😭😭 Right now I am having yellow green vaginal discharge. What will I do po? HIV infected na po ba ako? Or what? I don’t know what to do. Nahihiya din po ako magpatest.

    • Lloyd says:

      Go to your doctor Asap…gonorreah yan or tulo

      For now wait atleast 6 weeks then repeat the test at 3 months windpw period.
      Sad to say,unprotected sex is very risky tapos but only a test can tell kung infected ka.
      Goodluck and be safe!

  34. Marx says:

    Low risk /chance po… Pero pa test ka pa din for peace of mind…

  35. Mikel says:

    I had an encounter with an unknown status girl, protected sex using condom malaki ba posibilidad na ma infect ako ng hiv? Salamat po sa sasagot.

  36. Ken says:

    Ask ko lang po. Umorder po kasi ako ng rapid test online. May kasamang blood lancet . Di ko po alam kung contaminated po ba yung blood lancet na manual. Nakakakuha po ba ng hiv dun? Salamat po sa sasagot.

Ngayon po kasi nilalagnat at inuubo po ako alam ko po nakakatawa tanong ko pero ilang araw na po ako di nakakatulog ng maayos lagi ko po kasi na iisip po yun paki sagot naman po wala po kasi ako ibang matanongan

    • kon says:

      if you followed the instructions correctly and you tested outside of the window period, then you are good. And move on with your life. you don’t get HIV that way. Uso flu ngayon worrying won’t help. Good luck.

      • Liza says:

        • kon says:

          posting here to ask question pero ayaw maniwala.
          kaya di ko prefer yang self test lalo na kung hindi knowledgeable yung gagamit.

        I’m not sure if Hi Precision has 4th gen pero regardless kung saan mo kunin, as long as they call it 4th gen, then walang pinagkaiba ang accuracy. 4th gen has 4 weeks window period.

        FYI lahat ng gamit na testing kits sa local testing sites ay 3rd gen.

    Sir. Nagtest rapid hiv test (finger prick) po ako ng pang 6 week ko (46 days) after exposure ( vaginal and oral) unprotected at negative naman. Nagkasymptoms po ako ng muscle ache, hilo, colds. Nagdiarrhea ako ng isang beses lng. Nakuha agad ng gamot. Pero yung sipon alam ko bago pa ako makipagsex meron na ko. So ngayon wala na po akong nararamdaman na anuman. Ilang percent kaya base on your experience na hindi na magbago status na negative. Balak ko magtest sa 8 week ko next week. Salamat sa sasagot. 3 times na ko nagseselftest. 4th, 5th, 6th week. Stress na talaga ko 🙁 nasa huli talaga pagsisi

    • Dom says:

      Saan mo nabili ang rapid test kit sir? Fujibio ba?

      • Vic says:

        SD bioline yung nakalagay sa box. Sa health office po ako nagwowork. May kasamahan po ako na magtetest sa hiv. Balak ko gamitin sa 8 week ay fujibio.

        • Vic says:

          Secret lang namin yung test. Kaibigan ko kasi. Kaya ko nasabi na selftest eh. Hnd pa ko nakonsulta sa doctor. Nurse po kaibigan ko

    • Marx says:

      Ako din Vic; labis nag nagsisi.. unprotected vaginal and oral sex… 3rd week pa lng since exposure… ang kulang mo vic is sa 3rd month since exposure na test… pwede naman yang SD Bio (Korean) or ung Fujibio (Japan)… pahingi nmn ng SD Bio mo.:)

      • Vic says:

        Iisa lang kasi yung ipinapatak sa cassette. Kung per kit nga eh. Baka ako na ang magisa ang test. Nanghingi na lang ako. Anu kaya ang percentage na hnd na magbago ang status na negative in 6th week. Nahihirapan na din ako makatulog sobrang kakaisip. Sana ibang std na lang wag lang hiv ang iniisip ko. Baka ibng sakit naman ang nagbigay sa akin ng mga symptoms na yun. Yun na lang pangpakalma ko minsan. Baka ibang std nman talaga ang sakit. Hnd pa kasi ako nagpaatest para sa ibang std 🙁

        • Marx says:

          Order ka sa Fujibio… meron din silang pang STD… or punta ka nlng sa Hi Precision.. meron clang package for STD kasama na HIV…

      • Justin says:

        Mahihiya aq mag pa hiv test pero feeling ko hiv positive na aq

    • Vic says:

      Hello po 🙁 good indication na po ba ang 6 weeks negative?

      • Marx says:

        6weeks is 95% accurate daw… hanap ka nlng ng ibang gagawin.. nuod ka ng netflix, lumabas ka, share mo nangyari sayo sa isang close (at mapagkakatiwalaang friend). But ka nga negative ka na sa 6weeks. Ako, nag aantay pa…

        • Vic says:

          Salamat Marx. Okay isang linggo na lang naman hihintayin ko sana negative. Dami ko na napanuod. Sana pareho tayong magnegative. Pag natapos na siguri ang 3 mos. Tyaka na ko papatest sa ibang std. Sa ngayon naman wala akong nararamdamn. Normal naman.

    Guys tanong lang po. Magkano gagastusin kung magpatest nang HIV sa medical city? Kasi sabi nila 4th gen daw more advance pero mahal nga daw. Sabi kasi sakin wag daw gumamit nang health card kasi ma trace… how much kaya aabutin? Anyone yung totoo naman please.. help help help

    Tama po ba ginawa ko pag order ng fujibio. Nag check out naman. Pinindot ko paymet is money transfer at inadress ko sa LBC na malapit sa amin. Cash on pick up po ba yun?

    • Lloyd says:

      Dapat may nakausap kng tao or baka bago na patakaran nila…LBC pickup ang ginawa ko non kase ayaw ko dumating ang package sa bahay at baka iba makatanggap…daming tanong.

    • Marx says:

      Hindi da yan cash on pickup or cash on delivery (COD) Dom… 3 ways yan: using paypal/credit card, cash deposit thru their BDO and BPI accounts (yes, idedeposit mo sa bangko) and 3rd, using money transfer which means paying them thru Palawan Express, Cebuana Lhuillier, etc. Contact them nlng, nag rereply nman yan cla sa email.
