Home tested after 12 weeks
I used the BIOSure home test after exactly 12 weeks after unprotected heterosexual intercourse and got a negative result. I waited an additional 5 minutes to make sure and there was no change. I watched the whole process take place even when the blood moved up the testing strip.
The ability to take a home test at my own leisure was a lot of relaxing than going to a GUM clinic or gp and, in addition, getting a result after 15 minutes is infinitely better than waiting anxiously for a number of days.
Thinking back, is it right to assume that the test sample goes unaffected even for that brief period when blood is exposed to air (following pin prick, it took me 20/30 seconds to make sure all the blood went up the testing tube as i was comparing it to the picture and repressing against my finger]?
Nevertheless, it’s a great test.
