Talking about home testing for HIV

Tell your story





So I pulled the trigger and bought the self test. It arrived early this morning so after waking up I decided let’s start off this valentines day with knowing what I am.
At first not a lot of blood went up the tip of the tube, so I squeezed more blood out of my finger and let it collect in the tip until it was full/sufficient.
Within 5 minutes the control line appeared and it stayed that way, by 15 minutes it was just one line – negative.
Feels good to know! I wish this selftest kit was slightly less expensive though!
