Terrified

I spent a week convinced I was HIV+ after a few sexual encounters that were on the risky side.

I ordered the BioSure test on the Friday (but unfortunately missed the same-day-despatch window) and the test arrived the next Tuesday.

After 15 nerve-wracking minutes, the result was negative, and I was so relieved. Not because of the possibility of death. Not because of the potential years of drugs and treatments ahead. No – simply because if positive I would have lost my gorgeous partner, and that would have been utterly the worst thing possible!

The test is so simple to use and you really can’t get it wrong. I was terrified of the potential result – maybe others are in the same frame of mind – but I completely recommend taking the test and actually finding out for certain.
