Talking about home testing for HIV

I had no excuse to put off being tested

I didn’t think I was HIV+ as I never seem to get ill not even a summer cold but I’m embarking on an IVF journey and in the back of my mind I was aware that a positive result at the eleventh hour would cause delays in the process. I heard about the self test kit on TV and decided I had no excuse to put off being tested.

Kit arrived with 48 hours. Extremely professionally packaged with very clear instructions. It would sit very comfortably on a high end shelf at Boots.

The result was very clear and easy to interpret and I am negative. HIV can be treated so successfully these days so I wasn’t so worried about being positive but I can’t wait to be a Dad so now I have peace of mind and I’m really pleased with my result.
