I bought the test a year ago and traveled back home to Ghana but did not use it because I was too scared. It expires by May 03.
I finally got around to using it two nights ago and tested negative (one line). Last exposure was 2018 (torn condom) twice and I’ve had almost all symptoms since 2019: swollen LN – armpit, groin, neck, occasional fevers, seborrheic dermatitis, muscle fasciculations everywhere, tingling, burning sensations, random lancinating jabs of needle like pain, sore throat, deep muscle pain, muscle weakness, finger numbness, abdominal rash, itchy face and scrotum, oral ulcers, chest pain and costochondritis.
My question is this:
-is the test still accurate considering the fact that it was about to expire?
-is it valid considering that I live in a very hot country (>30 degrees centigrade days). The test kit was stored unopened in a wardrobe, not under direct sunlight.
-does the test check both HIV 1 and 2 and all subtypes?
-do I have to do a confirmatory test?
I am extremely worried now as I have just seen a post by Pain 60 who used the Biosure 5 times and turned positive with a lab test.
