Rapid test for HIV and syphilis
Checkpoint provides rapid tests for HIV and syphilis. This test is completely anonymous and free of charge. The rapid tests we use at Checkpoint are reliable after 12 weeks. If you had unprotected sex with a person in a high risk group for having hiv, like a cis- or transgender man who have sex with other men, you might consider getting tested.
When should you take an HIV test?
If you have been exposed to risk, especially through unprotected anal sex with a man who have sex with men, you should take a HIV-test after the 12-week long window period is over. If you usually have multiple sexual encounters without protection, you should get tested frequently or consider PrEP.
