Can anything affect the result of my HIV test?

HIV antibody tests are not affected by other circumstances.

This includes infections, medications, most vaccinations, putting on weight, eating or drinking anything before the test, use of alcohol or recreational drugs, mouthwash or time of day.

Your test result is accurate even if you had flu or a cold or are using any medication.

You do not need to fast before your test. Food and drink do not affect the results.
