Anonymous HIV Testing at Our Clinic.

In 2008, we were given the mandate by the Ministry of Health to conduct anonymous HIV testing.

Registration form for Anonymous HIV Testing. No personal details required.

Registration form for Anonymous HIV Testing. No personal details required.

Not all clinics are allowed to conduct anonymous HIV tests. This is because according to the Infectious Diseases Act, all medical personnel are required to inform MOH of the details of any person they know or suspect of being infected with HIV. Our clinic signed a gazette that is filed with the Supreme Court of Singapore to excuse us from this section of the Infectious Diseases Act. We are therefore mandated under Singapore Law to be allowed to conduct Anonymous HIV tests. Yes, it is a big deal.

We use only Gold Standard HIV tests that are validated and approved according to the latest International Standards.

All Our Doctors are fully certified and trained in advance HIV testing.

We use only single use and disposable equipment and are validated by MOH for Good Infection Control Practices.

  5. Hi doc, I wan to adopt a baby which only less than two months old, her mum is infected with HIV, she got a two year boy which is not infected when gave birth. Now this baby girl was had her first HIV tested with negative. And second test still pending for report. I heard that there is a window period of 18months?

    Doc, pls advice what’s the possibility of her will got infected with HIV, if her second result is stil negative?

    Do you have any further test at your clinic? The baby is not resident at sg now. Is there a possibility to send the samples blood to your lab?

    Thanks

    • You do not need to repeat testing at 18 months as long as the baby has the correct tests done. Maternal HIV antibodies can be detectable for up to 18 months, so it is recommended that testing is done by virological assays (DNA/RNA PCR testing). By approximately age 1 month, PCR testing has a 96% sensitivity and 99% specificity to identify HIV. We do not take blood samples from overseas for testing.

    Hello Doctors, I engaged in unprotected oral sex and protected penetrative sex last month.

    Recently, I discovered that a white subtance began to accumulate and appear after rubbing my penis glan. There are also some small red areas on the penis glan and dots on the foreskin which I’m not sure whether or not it is fordyce spots. I suspect I have a penile yeast infection and would also like to know if I might have gotten HIV.

  8. Hi Dr,
    I had protected oral and vaginal sex with a prostitute, and the condom was intact after sex. How much chance I would catch STD / HIV? Do I need to have test now? Or any recommended time later?

    Many thanks,
    J

    • Although condoms will reduce your risk of STD transmission, they are not 100% protective. There are also STDs which are transmitted via skin-to-skin contact such as genital warts or herpes. If you have any concerns, please come visit us for a consult and evaluation.

  9. Hi Doc,

    I am worried a lot. I have a question related to seronegativity. Although i know its very rare i am still worried.
    I tested over seven times with HIV combo test in the span of 42 months after a exposure incident and result were non reactive. However I have constant body pain , abdominal pain and skin rash throughout this period and feeling too unwell. Normal medical test didnt found anything wrong but i am still having a lot of body problems. Also I tried a lot of medication as prescribed but to no avail.I know you cannot give medical advice over internet however I would just like to know can i be a seronegative individual and do i need a hiv pcr test. I am just asking you this question as i know that you have many years expertise over this topic.You reply would be very valuable to me doctor.

    • In my opinion you most definitely do not have HIV and there is no need to do further HIV testing. However, if it will give you peace of mind, then go ahead and do a viral load PCR test.

    • I would also like to add that my exposure was of high risk and therefore i am much worried. Although m not confirmed about the status of my partner.

  10. Hi Dr,

    Can the HIV RNA/DNA PCR Test – Nucleic Acid Amplification Testing (NAAT) done under anonymous? Please advise.

    Many Thanks
    R

    • Hi, no this test cannot be run anonymously. Only our 3rd and 4th generation rapid tests are available for anonymous testing.
