HIV Home Test? Anyone? How reliable…?

February 28th, 2010 by admin

Does anyone know about this test? Is it reliable? How do you get results… by calling in and talking to someone at anytime?

Depends on the name of the test and who made it. I use a test in the hospital that is extremely reliable as an ANTIBODY test -meaning that it takes awhile after exposure before the person makes the antibody – sometimes weeks. There has been talk about making this kit into an over-the-counter test. It is made by Orasure. I am not familiar with other brands- but they might be good too. It is vital to understand the limitations of such a test! Just because you are negative today, doesn’t mean that you didn’t catch the virus yesterday.

    Don’t sleep around! Personally, I would rather trust a doctor than a drugstore product.
