Why Get Tested?
CDC recommends that everyone who is sexually active get tested for HIV and STIs regularly. You may have knowingly or unknowingly been with someone who has an STI. Early detection is key to staying healthy!
The Wisconsin Department of Health Services is committed to safeguarding the health of the community and increasing access to care and treatment.
What type of HIV test is this?
An antigen-antibody screening test. The HIV antigen-antibody test is a blood test that looks for both HIV antibodies and the p24 antigen (a protein on the surface of the virus) in the blood. This type of test is highly accurate and can detect HIV infection earlier than tests that only look for antibodies.
In general, antigen-antibody screening tests can detect HIV infection as early as 2 to 4 weeks after exposure. During this time, the body starts producing HIV antigens and antibodies, which can be detected by the test.
Should I take this test if I was previously diagnosed with HIV or syphilis?
If you have previously been diagnosed with HIV or syphilis, you should not take an antigen-antibody test for the same infection because these tests are designed to detect the presence of antigens and antibodies. Once a person is diagnosed with an infection, their immune system will typically produce antibodies specific to that infection, which could result in a false-positive result.
What type of Syphilis test is this?
It is a TPA test. TPA (Treponema pallidum) is a bacteria that causes syphilis, a sexually transmitted infection. TPA Syphilis testing is a blood test that detects the presence of antibodies produced by the body in response to TPA bacteria, which can help diagnose syphilis infection.
What collection methods does the test use?
- The Expanded STD Multi-Site Test is a test that checks for HIV, Syphilis, Chlamydia, Gonorrhea, and Trichomoniasis. This test uses a finger-prick blood sample, as well as urine, oral, and rectal samples.
- The Duo STD Test is a screening test that checks for both HIV and Syphilis infections. To perform the test, a few drops of blood are needed, which are obtained by pricking your finger. The blood sample is then collected on a collection card that is provided with the test kit.
- The Common STD Multi-Site Test is a test that checks for Chlamydia, Gonorrhea, and Trichomoniasis. It uses urine, oral, and rectal samples.

Why do I not see the same test I got before?
You are limited to only one free test of the same type within a 6-month period. If you can’t find the free test you’re looking for, it is likely because not enough time has passed to order another free one.
Why is STD used in the name of the test instead of STI?
STD stands for sexually transmitted disease and refers to an infectious disease passed from one person to another during sexual activity. STI stands for sexually transmitted infection and is a newer term used to describe the same conditions but focuses on the infection’s presence rather than the disease’s manifestation. While the use of the acronym STI is becoming more commonly used, STD is still frequently used because it is more well-known and familiar to many people.
