Avatar f tn So, you should feel confident in the Home Access test... again, any other HIV test that is not Home Access is not FDA approved or home use...
Avatar m tn hi i was wondering if the home access test looks for all subtypes of hiv 1? I read that there is a group called o or something that doesn't show up on the tests.
Avatar m tn There is only one HIV Home collection kit approved by the FDA and that is the Home Access.
Avatar f tn He asked me take test on 6 th month. At 10 th weeks, I asked my girlfriend and myself did HIV antibody test using Home Access HIV test kit(this kit was approved by FDA), All showed negative. But I still has 99.3 degree temperature and dry mouth, sometime has nigh sweats. I will do 3th month test. I am worried do much and depressed deeply.Do I get HIV? Thank your help very much!
Avatar n tn 5 months (18 weeks) and took a Home Access Hiv test. The result was negative. Sounds great, and I felt better but then read that Home Access uses the 1st gen ELISA, and even they recommend testing at 6 months to be accurate. Furthermore, I am developing a plantar wart on my heel which i've never had before. How accurate was my test, and should I test again at 6 months based on the symptom presentation? Your advice is greatly appreciated!
Avatar m tn There are two home tests available now in the USA. The home access test (blood test) and the oraquick test (saliva test). Is one more reliable than the other for early testing? A few things I am considering here are: 1) I believe Dr. Hook said that blood tests tend to detect positive results slightly earlier than saliva tests and 2) the home access test is a 2nd generation assay whereas oraquick is a 3rd generation assay. Thanks!
Avatar m tn The Home Access test is FDA approved an has been rigorously tested in order to get that approval. The Home Access test is an ELISA type test for HIV antibodies and it's performance is comparable to other ELISA-type antibody tests.
Avatar f tn I was just wondering if doing the Home Access Hiv Test Express would be just as good as taking the ELISA antibody test? Thank you again!
Avatar m tn I did a 28 day HIV test in December 2010, result was negative. Then I had a 5-1/2 months EIA (Elisa) tests, short of the reccommended 6 months and the result was also negative. But before those two tests, I was already taking allergy shots 2X a week that started September of 2010, two months before the encounter. Did my allergy shots affected my HIV test results? Is the negative conclusive inspite of the allergy shots I'm taking?
Avatar m tn Hello, just wondering the accuracy of the Home Access Rapid Test. I took one at right around 4 months and then again at 5 months, both coming up negative when I did the call in. Free and clear? What are your opinions on these types of tests. Thank you very much in advance.
Avatar n tn At 13 weeks, I took an Home Access test which I was HIV negative. For two weeks I had malaise, sore throat, heachache, nausea, joint pain, but still the rash. I am thinking of doing another Test in 6 months because I believe Acyclovir could of alter a false negative. I was reading that in HIV postive women Acyclovir reduces the viral load in there vagnia.
Avatar n tn My 7 week test from home access was negative. If ars symptoms had started at week 4 can I assume my 3 month test will also be negative yet? According to other posts I'm guessing its now likely, but with a high risk exposure?
Avatar n tn I'm sorry to bother you one last time. But I'm sure you've seen cases like me where the 1 in 1 billion chance is still not good enough--I am so scared over this. In any case, I'm going to get another Home Access test next week--at 23 weeks after exposure. Would the 23 week test meet the "6 month" CDC guideline? Will I finally be in the clear then? Thank you, Doctor. And, again, I'm sorry to bother you with something so petty--but the anxiety is just too much.
Avatar n tn I apologize for sounding so paranoid, but I am a hypochondriac... I had two tests at 6-weeks; a Home Access test, as well as a standard blood draw ELISA done by LabCorp. I took another Home Access test at 8-weeks. All of these came back negative... What are the chances of me still showing positive as an otherwise healthy young man of 25, with no prior immune deficiencies, and a negative Home Access test 8-weeks out? It has now been around 15 weeks since the incident(s) in question...
Avatar m tn I do not have much info about home access HIV test kit, but I can tell you that any test after 3 months well be conclusive
Avatar m tn i doubt if they still use first generation test unless its home access test, also rapid test like oraquick are equilivant to 2 nd gen testing.
Avatar n tn At 10 Weeks I took a Proviral DNA by PCR Test and Elisa Test negative. At 13 weeks, I took an Home Access test which I was HIV negative. For two weeks I had malaise, sore throat, heachache, nausea, joint pain and rash. I am thinking of doing another Test in 6 months because I believe Acyclovir could of alter a false negative. I was reading that in HIV postive women Acyclovir reduces the viral load in there vagnia.
Avatar n tn Yes and ELISA test is also called a EIA or MEIA test. All the same test.
Avatar m tn HIV test results overrule everything else, as long as testing is done long enough after the last possible exposure. No matter the symptoms and no matter how high risk the exposure at the time, your negative HIV tests prove conclusively you do not have HIV. Continue to work with your doctor about your possible thrush and other symptoms, but HIV isn't the problem.
Avatar n tn I recently took the Home Access HIV1 test which was negative at 5 months but my exposure was in West Africa where HIV 2 and other rare strains are more common. And I’m still having symptoms like fatigue and heated skin. Do I need to test for HIV 2 differently?
