We use a device known as the Trinity Uni-Gold Rapid HIV test. The rapid tests we use have an accuracy level of 99.96%.
The rapid HIV test offered at Positive Women Inc (PWI) is a finger prick test, which detects HIV antibodies if they are present in the blood sample. This will tell you whether you have contracted HIV or not. The benefit of the rapid HIV test lies in its name: you get quick results – 15 minutes to be exact!
PWI guarantees that testing with us is a completely confidential process. An appointment is necessary.

Frequently Asked Questions:
- Is the test free? The HIV Rapid test is free and available to all women.
- How long do I have to wait after I have had unprotected sex to get tested for HIV. Can you get tested right away and know the results? Or do you have to wait a certain amount of time? HIV tests detect antibodies — the immune system’s response to infection. For the majority of people, HIV testing will be accurate at six weeks after possible infection. Therefore it is recommended to wait to get tested for at least 6 weeks. Please note: If you are worried or need to talk to someone please call us at any time – Free phone: 0800 POZTIV 0800 769 848 .
