What Happens If I Test Positive?

The reality is that some of you will test positive. The first step is getting a confirmation test to make sure your test wasn’t a false-positive. If that comes back positive, please know your life IS NOT over. It actually has just begun because now you know your status and can make the proper plans for your future in terms of medication and support.
