Talking about home testing for HIV

Tell your story




Bought 2 biosure test kits

I’m writing this because I have found reading the feedback of others very helpful. I’m a 25 year old straight man who had a lot more sex in my teens than now. I recently got paranoid about having STIs because of some symptoms I exhibited : persistent sore throat and extreme fatigue. so I called the sexual health clinic and got an appointment booked two weeks later. However I couldn’t wait so I decided to buy two biosure kits. Using the product was easy and I was so glad when both tested negative. My symptoms persisted however. Eventually I ended up at the STI clinic and got tested for hiv, gonorrhoea, syphllis, chlamydia. It turns out I had chlamydia and must have had it for over 10 years. The sore throats and headache and fatigue must have occurred because i drank my urine a few times during a “ wholistic wellness “ phase I was going through this year. This transferred the chlamydia bacteria to my throat and hence caused the symptoms. My story seems long winded but I’m glad I trusted my gut feelings and went ahead with the tests. I’m glad it’s just chlamydia and nothing worse.
