I wasn't looking forward to doing the test
The self-test kit arrived quickly (I think only a couple of days after I filled-out the online order form). I wasn’t looking forward to doing the test, as I wasn’t sure how I would be able to pierce myself to get the blood! But, the kit was very easy to use, and the actual piercing was nothing, really. I am still planning to visit a walk-in clinic this week – a friend suggested that it would be better to do so, just so that I could also be tested for other stuff (i.e. Hepa, chlamydia, etc). If I’m going to be honest, I don’t have 100% confidence on how accurate a self-test kit would be, and therefore (in my head) going to a clinic would be better. But this is definitely very helpful, and reaches out to people who might be afraid/reluctant to go to clinics. I’ve made a donation to cover the costs, so if others could do the same, I would encourage them!
