How does an HIV self-test kit work?

The BioSure HIV test works by detecting antibodies in the blood from a sample of blood that you provide. It takes time for antibodies to be produced in the body and this test works best 3 months after exposure to the infection, giving the body time to have built up detectable antibodies. It’s also possible to test 4 weeks after exposure, however, you should test again after 3 months if your result was negative. If you believe you have been exposed to HIV very recently (within the past 72 hours) it’s important to seek urgent medical help to receive treatment known as PEP (post-exposure prophylaxis) to stop the virus, rather than wait to test it yourself.

If you’ve been experiencing symptoms of HIV (symptoms are usually flu-like) or you’ve been at risk of exposure to the infection, this test can produce results in 15 minutes, it’s quick and is a small device which means you can carry out the test wherever is convenient for you.

How accurate is the BioSure HIV test?

The BioSure HIV Testing Kit is highly accurate. If used correctly the test is 99.7% accurate at detecting positive results and 99.9% accurate at detecting negative results. This is all based on using the test correctly but if you have any doubt do visit a healthcare professional for further testing.

How to use the at-home BioSure test kit

The BioSure test kit is essentially a simple finger prick test. Using the lancet provided simply place it against your finger and push down until you hear a click which will make a small cut in your skin and release blood. The kit also contains a testing device that you should place on the drop of blood until the tip fills. You should then push the testing device down to the bottom of the buffer pot and wait 15 minutes for results. The testing device will show lines that represent your result, one line means a negative result and two lines mean a positive result. No lines are an indicator that the test did not work properly.

Why is it important to get tested?

Testing is the only way to determine whether you have HIV or not. Whatever the result, knowing is better than not knowing. While HIV is no longer life-threatening this is only because of the revolutionary medicines that are available to manage the infection. Testing means you can access these medicines if your result was to come back positive. Plus, the earlier the virus is caught the better chance you have of controlling it and living a normal, healthy life.

Testing is also important to prevent the spread of the infection. Knowing your HIV status prevents you from unknowingly transmitting it to another person, for instance, through unprotected sex. HIV testing may ultimately prevent the virus from developing into AIDS (Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome) which is when your immune system is severely damaged by the HIV virus and your body cannot fight potentially life-threatening infections. Although HIV is incurable, getting tested is the first step to controlling the infection and avoiding serious complications.

How often should I test for HIV?

HIV testing should be routine if you’re having sex, and it’s recommended that you do this at least once a year. Having convenient test kits available at home means you can do this more often. If you’re at a higher risk of becoming infected, you should get tested every 3-6 months. If you believe you have been exposed to the virus recently, for instance, if you’ve had sex with someone who is HIV positive you should get tested right away, preferably within 72 hours of exposure as you may be able to receive emergency HIV treatment. At home test kits mean you can always know your HIV status, which is great for those who feel too embarrassed or don’t have time to visit their GP surgery or sexual health clinic for testing. However, you should always see a healthcare professional if you have a positive result or believe you have been exposed to the virus despite having no symptoms and a negative result.

I have my result, what do I do next?

What to do next depends on your result, if it is a positive result it’s important not to panic and remember there is help and HIV is no longer a death sentence. If your test is positive you should see a healthcare professional sooner rather than later such as your doctor or at a sexual health clinic where further tests can be carried out and a treatment plan put in place. Further tests will reveal how the virus has affected your immune system and the amount of virus in your blood. Antiretroviral drugs are given to stop the virus replicating in the body.

If your test revealed a negative result but you’re still having doubts and are experiencing symptoms related to HIV you should seek advice and further testing from a healthcare professional.
