Are HIV home test kits reliable?

 The Home Access HIV-1 Test System is an extremely reliable home test kit. Studies show that it will detect virus, which causes AIDS more than 99% of the time and has been proven very accurate in getting a positive result from your blood sample when used correctly with care instructions included on each package..

The accuracy rate may vary depending upon what type you opt for but overall these work well at determining whether or not one could have contracted Hiv/Aids through sexual contact as they do not use enzymes like medical devices such as Enzyme Immuno PConnellogram (EIP), confirmatory Western Blot procedure etc., instead just looking out directly where antibodies against this pathogenic agent

Can you test yourself for HIV at home?

Testing kits and self-tests are performed by a person at home or anywhere, and are used to get a specimen from people to see if they are positive. And are great diagnostic kits. All tests are approved by the labs of  SAPHRA.

How long can you stay undetectable?

Durably undetectable means that it’s been at least 6 months since the last time you had an undetected viral load, and now your levels are permanently in a “durably” state. This takes much longer than just stopping treatment once someone has achieved an initial recovery from infection with HIV – usually people need to stay on medication for about 12-15 months before they can be sure their virus won’t come back again (or give themselves away).

Reading The Test Results

Positive: Both purplish test band and purplish control band appear on the membrane. The lower the antibody concentration, the weaker the test band.

Negative: Only the purplish control band appears on the membrane. The absence of a test band indicates a negative result.

Invalid: There should always be a purplish control band in the control region regardless of the test result. If the control band is not seen, the test is considered invalid. Repeat the test using a new test card.
