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.

        • Mermaid says:

          May sinasabi sila pag mahina ang immune system ng tao nd agad agad nakikita sa hiv test kung infected kaba or hindi dahil kung malakas ang immune system mo dun palang lilitaw ang anti bodies.at isa sa sintomas ng mahinang immune system ang re current yeast infection.this is not to scare you or others

          • mermaid ulol says:

            what are u saying @mermaid? this is not to scare you, im afraid u are into drugs and not into hiv.

          • Mich says:

            @mermaid , so you mean hindi madedetect kahit pasok sa window period na 3 mos. Kung mahina immune system? Ganon? Kasi sabi mo pag mahina immune system d madedetect sa hiv test , so hindi reliable yung window periood at test ? Eh kelan pa madedetect kung mahina yung immune system??

          • Lloyd says:

        • Anne says:

          Yong fluconazule 7 days bang iniinsert mo?kasi mostly the infection clear is 7 days .if the yeast infection cannot clear yet sounds that you need more treatment..
          At iwasan mong kumain nang sweet foods..uminom ka nang apple cider vinegar para makatulong sa pagbaba nang sugar..
          How to drink
          You can mix 2 tsp of acv and 1 tsp of honey in one cup of hot water..kailangan apple cider with a mother..

      • Anne says:

Please answer

    • Anne says:

      Wala pang record na hiv possitive dahil sa finger.naparanoid ka lang..yong swollen lympnodes mo sa leeg pwedeng bacteria..hindi lahat nang swollen lympnodes virus agad..may cases na pwedeng bacteria ang dahilan sa swollen lympnodes.
      Para mawala yong anxiety mo get tested after 3 months of last exposure.

  5. kon says:

      • Marose says:

        Sana mag update siya pag kakuha ng result niya. May mangilan ngilan na din nga po kasi ako nabasa na ganian. Sa ibang FB page. Matagal din kasi makauha yung confirmation.

    • kon says:

      sige lang and keep feeding your paranoia at sa mga nakakabasa nito, you need to decide when to move on.

      kung hindi ka makuntento, go f*ck somewhere else.

      eh kung sabihin na maging reactive ka after all these years? ano magagawa namin? should the government and health organizations change the standard? hay nako make your life productive.

          Yearly ako nagpa hiv test at lahat ay non reactive.pero just recently this jan 18, 3019 nagreactive ako sa screening. naghintay pa ako ng confirmation sa san lazaro. meroon akong chlamydia history last 2009. d naman ako gumagamit ng babae na hindi naka condom. sa asawa ko.lng hindi. wala akong natandaan na gumait ako ng ibang babae na hundi naka condom. at normalky oag gumamit ako sa babae na naka condom d naman ako tinigasan. ginawa tinanggal ang at isasal ko nlng. honestky d ako nagsinungaling. dko maisip paano ako nagkareactive. dahil noong nagpa screen test ako subrang ubo ko. sa xray ko ay normal.sa mga labiratory ko ay normal lahat.nasa 740 ang cd4 ko. kaya nagtanung ako kong sakali akong maconfirm na positive. may nabasa kasi ako na pinaconfind sa hospital ang patiente for 2 weeks daw para mamonitor ang progress ng gamot. sa mga naka experience po. toto po ba..

          • kon says:

            hey George I know few people with HIV and most of them did not had to be confined at hindi ko na ikwento kung bakit. Antayin mo muna yung confirmatory test mo and hope you received a false positive.
            Good luck and pray for the best.

          • Lloyd says:

            Ang iba mong ginawa during sex ano pa?dinilaan moba ang kepyas ng babae?or as in salsal lang?sino2 ang mga babaeng yan?ano ba nature ng work mo?

            Nun from 2008-2018, 2019 tapos regular naman ung pag test mo kamo. At high tech na masyado ung testing natin ng HIV. Halos .1 percent ung cases nun pag pag nag Non-Reactivate sa 3months mo kaya
            Bihira nalang sila mag advise ng repeat ng 6months not unless may mga early exposure ka. Na sakali dun mo nakuha. Pero praying na negative talaga siya brod.

    My 8th test at Love yourself anglo shaw blvd…NON REACTIVE AT 1 YR AND 2 MONTHS.
    I promise kase to myself na kahit wala nako risky expousre magpapatest parin ako every 6 months till 3 yrs time.

    Get tested and stil 3 months is 99.9 percent conclusive…ulitin mo nlng at 6 months pero nr parin yan.

  24. Ritzel says:

    Kapag po ba nagpatest ang madedetect po ba ay yung mga nakasex mo 3months ago at mga nakaraan pa? Pero kung may nakasex kapa na iba nakapaloob sa window period yun ung hind detetable? Basta yung 3 months ago and up lang ang madedetect kahit taon pa..Ganoon po ba?

  25. Marose says:

    Hi. May asawa ako 7 years na kami nagsasama. Pero natukso ako. Na aliw ako sa mga dating apps. Meet tapos sex. Unknown mga status nila. Kung di ako nagkakamali nasa 2015-2017 ko nagawa yun. At sobra pagsisisi ko kung bat ko nagawa yon. Ngayon nagpatest ako. Non-reactive. Pero untill now parang takot parin ako. Anxiety? 😔

            kung admin lang ako dito i-ban na kita. tigas ulo mo tapos magpopost ka pa tungkol sa magjowa na naging positive after years.

          Sorry po. Pero bago po ako dito sir. Nalilito kasi ako sa window period nga po. Akala ko kapag lumagpas ng 6months ee di madedetect. Nabobobo na po ako sa sobra takot ko. Kung ano2x naiisip ko. Maka kako after a year baka bigla magbago test ko. Pasensiya napo. Salamat na din po sa pag sagot.

    Good day guys..
    With regards sa alarming posts meron mangilan ngilan ang nagpopost ng ganyan at simasabi na maging positve after a yr…pero kapag tinanong mona kung ano history nila….nakakalimutan or nagkakagulo na…wala pang naitalang kaso na after 6 months or 1 yr ay turn out to be positive…NO WAY..HINDI PWEDE!
    KAPAG PURO SABI2 LANG AT WALANG EBIDENSYA, WAG NA PANIWALAAAN….it coukd be possible na may nakakalusot sa 3 months window kaya nga options na magoatest at 6 months kung gusto mo lng for peace of mind….kahit ano pa jan ang sintomas nakikita mo walang paki yan sa test na negative….wag na bigyan ng pasin..tiwala kay Lord at dasal…magbago na at baguhin nadin ang takbo ng utak at jan ka nagkakasakit kase hihina na resistensya mo kakaisip.
    Kapag ikaw ay may cancer ang sabi ni NOON ay matagal madetect..isa yan sa mga factors pero nowadays winala na nila ying ganyan posibilidad.KUNG MAY TEST MAN NA SOBRANG ACCURATE NOWADAYS UN AY HIV TEST…kung duda ka sa test mo na yan…go to another clinic or hospital..ganyan ginagawa ko…atleast 3 test sa ibat ibang hub…
    Goodluck and Godbless.

    2 weeks after 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.

    • Anne says:

      Get tested after 3 months of last exposure test lang ang makasagot sa tanong mo.
      Kadalasan ang nagpossitive sa hiv base sa survey sa mga clinic ay assymptomatic it means walang simtomas na lumalabas..sa ngayon ralax ka muna at magpray habang hinihintay mo ang 3 months..pwede naman magpatest ka after 6th week of last exposure pero 95percent lang ang madetect..3 months is conclussive.

    May nabasa ako. Nov. 2017 naging sila ng jowa daw niya. Tapos nagpatest sila ng feb 2018 parehas NR. Then 2nd time june 2018 nagpatest ulit sila. Tapos ang patner na isa NR tapos yung isa nag reactive. Sumala daw nung 1st time magpatest nag safe sex na sila. Pero still nahawa parin yjng isa. So parehas na daw na reactive sila ngayon. Di ko maipost dito ung screenshot ee. Kaya kinwento ko nalang. Ang dami nag comment sa post nia. Sabi ng nag post meron daw po talaga na late madetect minsan years daw po bago madetect. Nakaka alarma. Napaisip po tuloy ako. Ano po tingin nio dito??? Salamat. Sa mga sasagot.

        Marx–
        stop feeding your mind with unnecessary stress by looking for that story.

        Sam– i have the feeling you are the same dude 2 pages ago. STOP SPREADING these information. GTFO this site and seek professional help.

    • kon says:

      years? hardly. possible po yang case nila pero RARE. When we say rare, you got better odds of getting hit by a car. THINK ABOUT IT.
      up to you to believe such stories lalo na kung sa internet galing, even on posts like this. SHOO! GO AWAY 🙂

      to the readers–should you be alarmed? NO. Stick to the 3 months window period and move on with your life if you get NR result.

      • Anne says:

        I guess nagpakalat lang sya nang bad news para lalong maparanoid ang lahat..base sa nabasa ko 3 months ang window period and repeat 3 months for sure…
        That story is very rare.guys alam nyo ang test natin ngayon ay napakaaccurate according sa mga doctors na expert nang hiv…

        • Vic says:

          Tama. Huwag naman kayo magpost ng mga ganyan. Kakatest ko lang ng pang 8th week. Napapaisip na naman tuloy ako na baka magiba pa status ko

    • Sam says:

      Pasensiya na po kung naging dahilan itong post ko na to para makaragdag sa iniisip niyo. Dahil ako din po na naparanoid nung nabasa ko to kaya nagtanong ako. Hanggang ngayon nag iisip ako kung paano nangyari yon. At posible para mangyari yon. Pasensiya na po.

      • kon says:

        hey. i know you are the same person who posted few pages ago.
        IF THE CURRENT TESTING STANDARD DOESN’T CONVINCE YOU, THEN YOU ARE BEYOND OUR HELP.
        I’m not going to debunk that story because it’s pointless.

        other people like lloyd and others spending free time to help here–i advise not to reply to these kind of questions.

        people reading this post: advise ko lang–maniwala lang kayo sa isang bagay kung may pruweba. geez. lol

    • Lloyd says:

      Ganito lang yan…if you want to suffer with ur mind on eberyday basis thinking about it…Choice mona yan. After all nasayo yan kung sino paniniwalaan mo. As much as possible i try to avoid it…sa dinami dami kong nababasa on other hiv group like the body..medhelp..uk..canda…3 months tlaga ang basehan nila and 6 months for rare csses na posibleng makalusot pero halos 1% lang un…and i repeat its VERY RARE.
      Goodluck and Godbless.

      Impossible kasi.. sabi is 3months conclusive na.. Napaisip tuloy ako ngayon kung kelangan ko ulit magpatest..

    Question lang po, may nag positibo nba dito na govermnt employee? Example pulis po. Pag nag undergo na ng treatment diba required po yung may philhealth malalaman po ba ng employer na ikaw ay positibo kahit hindi mo pinapaalam sa kanila? Mag iinform ba yung philhealth sa employer mo na ikaw ay positibo sa hiv dahilan na matanggal ka sa serbisyo?

    • Afraid says:

      Or yung DOH ba ang mag inform sa employer mo n positibo ka? Sana hindi nman ganyan pra din yan sa kapakanan ng isang hiv pos na hindi mawalan ng trabaho.😢

    Hi po ask ko lang po Jan 3 and 5, 2019 I had unprotected contact with my partner recently nalaman ko multiple partner sya natakot ako. Naalala ko naman di sya nagwidraw inside but Im afraid with the precum. Then, on my 2nd week after exposure nagpatest ako 3rd gen it is non reactive. Next, on my 3rd week negative pa din sya using 4th gen. Last test ko during my 4th week negative pa din using 3rd gen ulit. Nagpatest din ako sa syphilis and papsmear ok nmn ang result. Medyo natakot ako dahil sa discharge ko dahil mejo madami, light green, and has a slightly odor. Sabi ng doctor ko I have UTI. Dahil lang ba un sa UTI? Ganun ba kataas un risk ko? but I decided na magpatest ulit dis feb and then after 3 months para sa peace of mind. Hopefully negative talaga sya. Thanks po sa sasagot.

      sa 6th week malalaman using 3rd gen (example, Fujibio) kung may HIV ka… pero 95% conclusive pa lng yan… get tested again at the 3rd month since last exposure… 99.9% conclusive na yan… and cguro another one at the 6th month, paniguro lng…

    Hope this finds you well!

    Im on hivtestphilippines.org right now, and felt the need to say something: I see us working together with you to drive a lot more traffic/leads from this site every month.

    Theres some consultants I work with that have a ton of experience, and a solid handle on your line of work. They can show you how theyve increased leads to other sites by as much as 130%.

    Would it be OK for them to give you a call tomorrow?

    What’s the difference po between HIV, AIDS and STD po? Thank you po sa sasagot.

    • Lloyd says:

      Hiv…before aids..eto ing ina nakukuha kapag nakipagtalik ka na walang protection….nahawa ka ng iyong nanay sa sinapupunan palang…breastfeeding…mag inject ng drugs at pasa pasa kayo at ang isa pala ay may hiv na…mahawa ka s apamamagitan ng ineksyon or infected needles na may virus.
      Aids..kapag bumaba na immune system mo which is cd4 count below 200 na sanhi ni hiv kase huli na or hindi agad nadetect dahil takot ka or binalewala mo ang pagpapatest.
      Std…sexually transmitted diseases like hiv..gonorreah..hepa abc…sipilis..etc etc…

    Hi. Just want to share my experience. I had oral sex with a guy last Nov. Parang nastress yung throat ko, dumura ako my konting blood kaya naparanoid ako since its possible na may precum na makapasok sa blood stream ko and I have no idea kung ano status nung guy. Although sabi nya naman negative sya. Anyway, since that incident, sobrang paranaoid ko na. Pakiramdam ko magkakasakit ako although, di naman ako nilagnat or feeling na tatrangkasuhin. I tested negative using fujibio 5 weeks . Sobrang early kasi di na ako matahimik. Then tested again 8 weeks and negative ulet. 10 weeks, negative. Nagka dry cough ako na sobrang tagal mawala, so nadagdagan stress ko. Iniiisip ko kasi, humina na immunity ko kaya ayaw gumaling ang ubo ko. Finally tonight at 92 days, negative parin. Ngayon mas okay na ako. Anlaki na ng chance nq talagang negative ako. Magtest na lang ulet ako kapag nag 6 months na. Thanks God talaga at dininig nya ang dasal ko. I will continue praying for the people na naexperience ang naranasan kong anxiety. Ang hirap ng feeling. Kaya sana sa ibang tao na nakikipagsex sa strangers, be very careful or abstain na lang talaga.

    According to the American Psychological Association, chronic stress is linked to the six leading causes of death: heart disease, cancer, lung ailments, accidents, cirrhosis of the liver and suicide. And more than 75 percent of all physician office visits are for stress-related ailments and complaints.

    Ikaw, uu ikaw. masyado ka lang nag iisip. stress lang yan kapatid. bagkus ibigay mo ito sa Panginoong maykapal. sya lang ang makakagamot sa sakit na ito. kung di ka pa nag papa test. mag pa test ka na para mabawasan ang iyong iniisip. what if negative diba. at pag nag negative maging wise ka na sa lahat nang desisyon mo. tama na ang isang pag kakamali mo. pinag pray mo na negative ka at you have faith kaya magiging negative ang result mo. dont doubt sa kakayanan nya. pray can move mountains.

    Kakatest ko lang po kanina lang.. at its non reactive

  49. Cal says:

    Hi to all gud eve, I am sending you my update. It took almost 1 month for me to finally get tested. Before I did, I went to church to asked God for help, guidance to clear my mind . I even confess and asked forgiveness because I feel like this is a payback time for him to me as I am not a worthy Christian… I was crying.. nagtirik pa ako ako nang kandila.. After praying, I feel relaxed, I always tell myself if I will not get tested how would I know my status? Until surrendering myself to God, I got strength and courage to get tested. Dahil alam ko di nya ako pababayaan, maraming tao tutulong sa akin if I’m poz. Nung nasa hub nko, di ako mapakali. Alam mo yung feeling na gusto mong magback out? Pero sabi ko sa sarili kung patatagalin ko ito, baka sobrang baba na nang cd4 cells ko at need ba talaga itong maagapan habang malakas pa ako. So tinuloy ko… skip na tayo dun na tayo sa result …. tinawag na number ko, pumasok na kami sa room with my life coach for the result…di parin ako mapakali. Sabi kasi nya do you have any questions? Sabi ko ano po bang mangyayari sa akin if pos? Sabi nya lahat nang treatment hub tutulungan daw ako for treatment….wag daw ako magalala.. until sabi nya ready na ba ako for the result? Sabi ko po pero deep inside ayaw pa… until pina state nya full name ko, at binuklat ang papel….. at sabi nya….NONREACTIVE..grabe napalakpak ako, napasigaw, shook the hand of my life coach.. sabi ko grabe ang anxiety ko po in a month kakaisip, sleepless nights… thank God talaga…So lesson learn po sa lahat GET TESTED NOW, WAG MATAKOT. MARAMING TUTULONG SA INYO., WAG MAG BASE SA SYMPTOMS..
