Aids testing at home

Common Questions and Answers about Aids testing at home


Avatar n tn yes this is my concern. i really don't know too much about testing procedures and because i didn't know better than to ask at the time, i thought it would be a good idea to see what you thought.
Avatar f tn I just found out about 12 years ago my mate was unfaithful and i have gotten tested recently with an third generation eia antibody test hiv1/2 with reflexes, a rapid blood test, 4 oraquick home tests and all came back negative. But ive read ur post that some people with aids antibodies wont show on those tests. Im very scared that im in that stage and the tests i took arent sufficient enough to know for sure.
Avatar f tn So got tested at the doctors at 8 weeks, it came back negative. How accurate are results at 8 weeks?
Avatar m tn 28 days is when the 4th generation test given is considered conclusive. It's the same test give at 26 days but obviously 26 days is just shy of the 28 day declaration of being conclusive most people want. It is extremely unlikely a negative at 26 days will change to positive but it's called 'conclusive' at 28 days. Same test though.
Avatar n tn hi read your post..I was at a methadone clinic for over two years was at 70mg for the greater part of that, tapered down to 10(the clinic I was at didnt dispense below that) and jumped 10days ago...not going to lie it has been tough but it is doable...
Avatar m tn 1)Hi,my first question is can CMV interfere in Hiv test 2) i had hiv ag/bg combo axsym and vdrl testing which was negative,can the virus be detected in both these test even if you have aids and take the test past 5 years ,im still worried because i had OI which i had mentioned earlier im still nervous about the hiv virus,is it possible it might have turned into full blown aids thats why the results were negative,can you explain what is full blown aids 3)Do i need cd4 count test,please explain
Avatar f tn I hear from cdc, that they dont have info on the oraquicks accuracy as a test. Aids vancouver also doesnt encourage it as well as my local aids hotline. Should i take a rapid test at a clinic? What are your opinion?
Avatar n tn I looked up home testing and bought one online to do in the privacy of my home unaware that only one was FDA approved. The one I got came from Hong Kong and involved disinfecting my finger and doing a finger prick with a one time lance and placing a drop of blood on a test area and then placing two drops of activator onto the drop of blood, waiting twenty minutes and then looking at the result.
Avatar f tn one more thing , if i am still feeling worry is there any home test kits available for aids , kind thanks again .. appreicaite your advice.
Avatar n tn I was just tested at the 4 week mark. I know probably a little early, but I've been so worried. I did the rapid oral test, and it came back negative. How accurate are these tests at 4 weeks?
Avatar f tn I had no discharge or pain after 1 week and still none. To be sure I found some home testing online, basically a swab which you entered into penis and then mixed with a solution then entered into a testing cassette, wait 10 minutes for results. Due to my paranoia I bought 3 of these. The results were 2 negative and 1 which was a faint line for positive. I am confused now, I had no symptoms and then 2 negative tests.
