How To Test For HIV
Along with the traditional HIV testing method (going to a clinic where a medical professional tests you) there are now other options available that enable you to know your status, self-test and self-sampling. With these two options there is no need to see a professional and you can carry out the test at a time and place convenient to you.
How to test for HIV at Home
The BioSURE HIV Self Test is very easy to use and uses technology very similar to a pregnancy test, but it detects the specific antibodies to HIV (not actual HIV). The BioSURE HIV Self Test requires a minuscule amount of blood (less than a drop) which your test picks up automatically, so you don’t have to measure anything.
After carrying out 3 simple steps; (we say just prick, suck and poke) , you have a short 15 minute wait until you know your own status, there and then. You are the first person to know your status.
