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 current first in line 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.

Here is a step-by-step guide to getting an Anonymous HIV test done at our clinic.

  1. Dear doctor,

    3 times NEGATIVE till August 2018 after the risky exposure in July 2016.

    But i am still anxious as my GF suffered from similar symptoms of fatigue, fever, headache, rashes after having sex with me.

    Risky gay anal sex exposure in 7th July 2016; 1st negative 5th July 2017, 2nd negative 2nd November 2017 and 3rd negative 4th august 2018.All are rapid test.

    what do you think?

  2. Alex fernandes


    My new girl friend kissed me for lobg time (not in mouth) yesterday where my face skin was irritated due to razor burn (shaving) let us assume there were blood in her saliva. Does that situation expose me to JOB risk

  3. Hi – I was cleaning a plate in an Indian restaurant. There was a banana leaf on the plate that had some water on top. So, I sprinkled some water on the banana leaf and cleaned it. While I did that, some water splashed into my face. Is there any HiV risk if the water initially on top of leaf had some bodily fluid? Thanks for your help in this regard

  4. Anxietyboy

    Hi i hooked up with male with unknown hiv status. He masturbated me and i lick his nipples. After that i have noticed that i have a sore tongue. I am worried what if he has cuts on his nipples not visible to the eye. I have not seen visible cuts or sore on his nipples but i am still worried because of may sore tongue. Is there an hiv risk for my activity?

  5. Hi, are campbell de morgan spots/cherry angioma related to any STI?

  6. Hi,

    I am a female.

    I had a casual, oral sex encounter in May. It was a once-off encounter.

    I performed oral sex on him, but he did not ejaculate in my mouth.

    I have no symptoms that I should be concerned about. Except that I have had two bouts of severe cold since then (which could be just a normal flu bug) and a persisting cough for the past month.

    That being said, because this was my first time engaging in a sexual act with a man. I wonder if I should be tested for HIV?

    If so, will the standard $200 test suffice?

    Appreciate your insights, recommendation, and the cost of the specific test you have in mind.

    Of course, it’d be wonderful news if I am over worrying and no test is needed.

    • The risk of HIV from this exposure would be negligible. However, there can be other STDs transmitted orally including chlamydia, gonorrhea, and herpes. If you are concerned, please visit us for a proper consult and evaluation, and we can advise on appropriate testing during this time.

  7. Hi Dr,
    I had unprotected sex, after week of that I have these symptoms: general weakness, redness,rashes, muscle joints etc..
    I did sti tests at 3 and 6 months all negative. But still have weakness in my body
    Some people tell me maybe it’s HPV do u think this virus can do weakness plenty?
    Especially I see on my penis small rashes black color it go with a time
    How can we test for this ? It’s blood test or urine test

    Thank you

    • HPV does not cause the symptoms you describe. However, we cannot make any diagnosis online; if you have symptoms of concern, it is best to visit us for a proper consult and evaluation.

  8. Hi doctors,
    I have been experiencing intermitten mild pain in one of my testicle.
    Is there any stds that could cause this symptom?

    • Certain STDs can indeed cause testicular pain, including chlamydia and gonorrhea. Many non-STD causes can cause testicular pain as well. It would be best if you visit a doctor for a proper consult and evaluation.

  9. Hi doctor,

    I came for a HIV/syphilis test at around March 20 this year at robertson walk, both tested negative. My last possible exposure was Jan 7 this year, where i received oral sex with condom. No history of vaginal intercourse. However, i have became a little worried again as i have recently got into a relationship, and my girlfriend has started to have some rashes (neck that lasted a few days) and what seems like fungal infections (on the location of hand/leg joints) after we got together. Can i have your advice if

    1) the HIV/Syphilis tests are conclusive when i got tested?
    2) any other possible STDs that i should be worried of and get checked?

    Thank you doc.

  10. Samuel Rayben

    Hi doctor,
    What is the percentage for French kiss to get HIV virus from it if there is cut appear ?

  11. Hi all,
    I recently went to a massuer. After having my questions answered on this forum I AM CONFIDENT THAT A HANDJOB ISNT A RISK. That i am sure. However, i was fondling and vigorously sucking on her nipples. At first contact when sucking i tasted something salty.
    1. Could it have been sweat or breastmilk?
    2. Is lactation obvious? I fondled and squeezed her breasts but i didnt see any visible breastmilk. Does both breasts lactate with milk or usually on one side?
    3. Am i at risk if i drank or tasted abit of her breastmilk? I repeatedly asked if she was lactating and she was certain she wasnt…

    Please reply me. Thanks all.

  12. Alexander

    Hi doc,
    This may sound silly. But recently i went for a massage at orchard tower. I checked her hands for cuts and there werent any.
    1. Is handjob a risk? No penetration whatsoever.
    2. After the massage she offered me a cup of water. It was using a disposable styrofoam cup. Although it tasted like mineral water, i am afraid that she might add her own bodily fluid into the water as when she poured the water it was in another room. Is this a risk? The AFA told me that it isnt and i need counselling for anxiety.

  13. Sex encounters

    Dear doctors,
    This sounds a little silly, but is there a foolproof way of having sex without having risk of hiv or stds? Since condoms are not 100% protective, what can I do?
    And is it safe to give analingus?
    Thank you

    • The foolproof way would be having sex with a partner who has been tested and knows their HIV/STD status. Analingus can still result in transmission of certain STDs, including herpes, syphilis, and HPV/warts.

  14. Hallo dr,

    Is the 4th generation Elisa eat ( Ab and Ag) conclusive after 28 days ? I did two tests one at day 25 and one at day 30? Is the test conclusive even if I didn’t take PEP? Do i need any further tests ?

  15. gabriel

    Hi Dr.Tan,

    I’m gay and I have perform 4 unprotected oral sex to 4 different men in 2 days. All are without ejaculation in my mouth. Soon after that i develop sore throat,body aches,neck stiffness,headache and discomfort and rumbling in stomach. Now it has been 2 weeks from exposure.Am i at risk for hiv?

    • I do not believe there is any significant risk for HIV; however, there are certainly risks of other STDs, including oral chlamydia, gonorrhea, herpes, etc. It would be best to visit a doctor for a proper evaluation if you are concerned.

  16. Gergem


    I had oral sex with a man , i was the reciptive and the insertive too. He didn’t cum in my mouth and I’m not sure if he had any cuts in his mouth. I tested two times ( 4th generation Elisa test Ab and Ag) in the lab at day 25 and day 30 and both were negative . Even if I had a risk , are my results conclusive because other agencies said it must be done after 6 weeks and sometimes after 3 months . Please help

    • I would consider your testing at day 30 conclusive, and there is negligible risk from oral sex.

      • Thanks dr , so you mean I’m 100 percent hiv negative ? Do i need to test again? Have anyone turned positive after 4 weeks test ? Hope you answer

      • Do i need any other test , should I move on

  17. Melissa

    Hi Doctor Tan,

    Last year, I have had sex with over 20 guys, some protected some none. Most of the guys are young adults that I’ve met from online dating sites. One of them got tested for HIV/AIDS and the result was negative. I’ve sometime had period sex, but no exposed cuts or wounds, though I’m afraid sometimes when I’ve been fingered too hard that I’ve have bleeding of my vagina walls. I’ve never had any symptoms of other STDs as well, though my vagina does itch sometimes after sex or at certain points of my menstrual cycle. I also have been falling sick often which I attribute to not completing my antibiotics and getting little rest.

    I got into a relationship after that phase and recently my boyfriend of 5 months did a blood test for FFI in order to ORD. Unsure of the amount of tests FFI does or if it covers STDs or just a simple blood test, but he said he tested negative too.

    I know it doesn’t mean if my partners are negative that I am negative too. To your knowledge, am I at risk of HIV? But would you recommend me to get tested for any STDs?

    Thank you in advance and I apologise if I get any facts wrong.

    • Hi, yes there is a risk of HIV and other STDs from unprotected sex. Other infections like chlamydia, gonorrhea, and trichomonas are fairly common, and the more partners you have the greater the risk – many women and men may have no symptoms at all, so you will only know if you get tested. It is best to get yourself checked as well. Please come down to our clinics for a consult and evaluation.

  18. Very serious

    Hello doctor,
    I am having a very serious problem. My skin sometimes bruises without any external force. Ie. Purpura and petechiae.

    Given that the causes are a lot, can I rule out that hiv is not a cause?

    I gave and received unprotected oral sex with a female one year ago. I am also aware of the vagueness of hiv symptoms. I do plan to take a test next month, but in the mean time, can I be less stressed?
    Please help me.

  19. Manohari

    Hello Dr Tan,

    I had a dry sex with one guy last night with fully clothed. I was wear my track pant and boxer. My partner sat on my top and I ejaculated under my boxer. FYI He also wear fully clothed.

    Am i under the risk of HIV?. Your advice is more valuable.


  20. Need help

    Hi dr tan,
    I engaged with csw a few weeks ago. During the intercourse, the csw played with my testicle a little rough.
    So i have a little pain in my testicles that lasts for a few minutes. It is not intense, more of a discomfort.
    I went online to search, and was quite shocked and scared of the possible causes of the pain.
    I am not looking for a diagnosis here, just asking for an opinion, on whether this could be a serious issue. I heard the testicular injuries can have an intense pain.
    Appreciate your time!

  21. Hi Dr ,

    3QA:for Syphlis do I need to retest after 3month?

  22. Dear doctors,
    I am a guy who have blowjobs with other people. I am having intermittent fever and folliculitis. Are these hiv symptoms? Should i be worried?

    • HIV symptoms are non-specific. The only way to know conclusively is through testing. That being said, risk of HIV from oral sex is negligible. Of course, there are still risks for other STDs such as chlamydia, gonorrhea, herpes and syphilis. If you are concerned, it is best to see a doctor for a proper consult and evaluation.

  23. Hi Dr Tan,
    1QA:Is HIV combo P24 AG/AB is a 4 generations?

    2QA: I tested HIV combo P24 AG/AB in 66 days. On your Robertson Walk, result are negative Do I still need to retest after three months? I am Oral sex Insertive Fellatiio

    • Yes, the combo test is 4th generation, and we would consider this conclusive already – no need to test again at 3 months.

      • Hi Dr ,

        1QA: For Oral sex Insertive fellatiio with STD Screen need to test now ?

        2QA: on 47 day exposure I got Medical Report test STD Screen VD (RPR) and VD (Syphilis TP Ab) Result is Normal and Non-Reactive is this result is conclusive?

        3QA:for Syphlis do I need to retest after 3month?

  24. Hi Dr,

    I was exposed to a CSW on Jun 18. I received a short stint of unprotected oral sex, and insertive protected vaginal sex (which condom did not leak and break). I also have hemorroids (which i read is some kind of mucuos membrane) which was out that day, and I am afraid that the vaginal fluid of the csw might have touched it inadvertantly.

    I saw that you have a pcr test that can test for the virus at day 10-12 with high accuracy. Given that I am currently just within this period, should I have that test? I want to quell my fears as soon as possible. Based on the description above, what are my level of risk and would you recommend I do the pcr test?I am having alot of anxiety. Otherwise, when is the earliest I can do the rapid test, for an initial check and then for another confirmation check at day 28?


    • You may consider the HIV RNA PCR test if you wish, but this test can only be done on weekdays and must be taken before 1pm so that the lab can receive it on the same day. Expedited results will take about 1 week. Otherwise, you can consider doing a rapid 4th generation test from 2 weeks onwards as a good indication – this can be done at our Robertson Walk clinic anonymously. HIV RNA PCR tests cannot be performed anonymously.

    • Hi, we cannot comment on the validity of home testing. However, it is best obviously to follow the directions as stated. If you have concerns, we would advise to visit a doctor for a proper consult and testing.
