Talking about home testing for HIV

Tell your story




Still a little anxious after two tests

I had just one unprotected encounter with a person who said he was HIV negative. I was skeptical so I got tested twice (after 4 months and 5 months). After the first time, it was negative. I found it comforting after a long time of unrest anxiety. In two weeks the anxiety came back: I was so worried I did something wrong during the test or the other line was too unobvious, so I got another test. One line. I found someone else to reconfirm it.

Anxiety is so real. Rational thinking (CBT thinking) could help but only very little. If you have troubling anxiety, find a counselor.

It’s so good to know that many people here are just like me: overthinking and overworrying after negative results.

I want to thank BioSure for making such a great product.

BTW, does your product look slight different in other countries? (like packaging)

Hi TK, thank you so much for sharing your relief and for choosing BioSure. I am so pleased you managed to find peace after using our test, I hope people can read your post and feel at ease too. In regards to packaging it may vary slightly in different countries however the way to tell it is the BioSure test is to look for the CE mark and place of origin. Kindest regards Francesca Bard, BioSure (UK) Ltd
