Bad mistake



Hiv test at nearly 10 weeks

Rimming incident with a gay guy who has suddenly blanked me. I’ve since had very severe fatigue about 6weeks after possible exposure and flu symptoms plus now sores in mouth and constant tiredness along with sinus issues and now swollen throat? I had a 4th generation test at 3 and half weeks then 5 weeks then 7 and half weeks. And now one of your rapid tests at just 3days short of 10weeks. If I these symptoms were Hiv related then surely one of those tests would have picked it up? That’s my question.
Do I really need to take another test in nearly two weeks ?

Hi Bad Mistake. You are correct, if these symptoms were for HIV then your test is would come back positive. After the number of tests that you have performed the likely chance of them all being incorrect is extremely low however the BioSure HIV self test is most accurate after 12 weeks post possible exposure. I hope this helps and thank you for choosing BioSure. Kindest regards Francesca Bard, BioSure (UK) Ltd
