Thanks I took a lab blood test at 12 weeks and a biosure at 24 weeks to be 100% sure and it was also negative this has put my mind at rest

Hi Male 29, the BioSure HIV self test will always detect the anitbodies if present in the blood. Our self test will pick up antibodies as soon as your body starts producing them, however eveyone produces them at different rates. We recommend you take a test soon after possible exposure and then 3 months later as a confirmation test. I hope this helps. Kindest regards FRANCESCA BARD, BIOSURE (UK) LTD
