HIV Testing

Here at Famcare, we provide HIV testing, counseling and referrals.

HIV is a virus that attacks the body’s immune system. In some cases, HIV symptoms do not appear for 10 years or more. Common symptoms of HIV/AIDS include extreme fatigue, rapid weight loss, as well as recurring yeast infections (in the mouth). Night sweats are also common, as are low-grade fevers. Red, brown or purplish splotches may also appear under the skin, inside the eyelids, mouth or nose. 

AIDS is the last stage of HIV infection. Women with HIV/AIDS may also experience other STIs, Pelvic Inflammatory Disease (PID), or changes in their menstrual cycle. HIV has no cure. Antiretroviral medications are usually prescribed to reduce the amount of virus in the body, and to help a person stay healthy.
