Talking about home testing for HIV

Tell your story




doubt about results

I have had no sexual contact for more than 12 months and my first potential exposure dates from 10 years ago. Having had a white tongue for months I decided to test with biosure while in the UK which was negative. Because of doubts I tested again, again negative, but still with doubts. I then arranged a HIV test through my GP in Belgium, again negative. My white tongue is making me doubt these results. Should I consider the results of my 3 tests conclusive? Could an exposure dating form 10 years ago have made my antibodies undetectable?

Hi Doubter Thanks for getting in touch. You can rely on your negative test results. It is virtually impossible that all three tests would be wrong. The test run by your GP would be a completely different type of test to the BioSURE HIV Self Test. I would conclude that the rash on your tongue is not a consequence of an HIV infection. I hope that this puts your mind at ease. Kind regards Gary Carpenter BioSure (UK) Limited
