Confirm Negative?

Hello, I have taken a hiv self test this morning, it appears to be display a negative result but I’d just like to be sure as I have taken a couple of pictures (around 20 minutes or so after starting the test) and I can see a slight blotch of red on the left hand side of the second line (the control line is very clear and was very quick to appear). My possible exposure was over a year ago. This hasn’t appeared as a line so I would assume that my result is negative. Please can you take a look at my results and confirm? It is barely visible in the first picture but is more clear in the second picture with flash. You may need to zoom in on the pictures to see what I mean. Thanks

Hi. i just tested my status using biosure. I can clearly see the line as red and there does not seem to be any other line. I can see some smudge on the left side though on the other unopened tests it is there too so i can only assume it is the line from the sticker or something. Can you please confirm my results?

I took Biosure test at 13 weeks after possible exposure to HIV it was negative, how reliable is this result?

Hi, I believe that we have discussed this via email. I would say that this is a negative result. Usually when users test around a year after any possible exposure, if they were to be positive, due to the nature of the strip, the test line is usually very visible and easy to read. Following our discussion via email, your second test that was performed following this was definitely negative so please rely on this result. Kindest regards, Becky
