What happens if results come back HIV positive after using the Nurx Home STI Test Kit?

Any HIV results will be disclosed in a sensitive and informed fashion, following state laws around result disclosure. Our team of medical providers are equipped with HIV education and links to care resources for further testing and ongoing HIV treatment.

If you are living with HIV, it is important to start treatment with HIV medication (called antiretroviral therapy or ART) as soon as possible after the infection is discovered, ideally on the day you are diagnosed. There are multiple actions you can take to prevent transmitting HIV to an HIV-negative sex partner, such as getting your own viral load to an “undetectable” level by taking your HIV medications as prescribed, by practicing safe sex techniques, and by talking to your partner about using Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis or PrEP. PrEP is a daily medication that can dramatically reduce an HIV-negative person’s chance of getting HIV. Taken every day, PrEP can lower the risk of acquiring HIV by well over 90%.
