Talking about home testing for HIV

I'm so scared


I had a risky exposure (giving oral without ejaculation) about a year ago, then I started panicking and got tested at 3, 5, 6 and 7 months with all negative. Now I’m required to get tested for it for work at one year mark but I’m super super scared that it would go wrong. Do I have such a risk that my result would be different this time? I’m so scared that sometimes I get very suicidal.

percent false negative
 on 17th August 2016

Hello, I brought one of your tests and took it at 5 weeks which was negative and then I took another one of your tests at 6 months and it was also negative, now I'm worried I was one of the 0.01 percent that received at false negative? What is the risk of this happening considering two negative results?

Hi Worried Guy Thanks for getting in touch again and I completely empathise with your situation. There is absolutely no chance that all four of your test results would be incorrect. So I can assure you that you have nothing to be concerned about with regard to this subsequent test. The four tests you took previously are totally conclusive. I hope that this answers your question and will put your mind at ease with regard to your HIV status. Kindest Gary
