Do you think that having four at-home self rapid HIV tests, that I don't have HIV? I bought them from BioSURE, only self testing kits available in UK

Depends: If the potential exposure was more than 6 months ago, negative test would be reassuring. If the exposure was more recent, a negative result does not rule out infection. It would be prudent to discuss it with your doctor to see if a HIV nucleic acid test would be more suitable for you. ...Read more

How do you get a non-fda test done without seeing a m.D.? Services, laws, shortcuts? In what field should I look toward? Not interested in fda/m.D.'s

Depends: What is the type of test that you are interested in trying.

So the best thing is to be specific about the testing you are interested for the best answer to this question. ...Read more

For few people who don't develop HIV antibodies, can they assure HIV free with (-) P24 4Gen FDA test at 1,3,4,5,6 month and PCR at 4month? Pls explain

For few people who don't develop HIV antibodies, can they assure HIV free with (-) P24 4Gen FDA test at 1,3,4,5,6 month and PCR at 4month? Pls explain

Urban myth: There are no people who don't develop HIV antibodies if infected. In theory, maybe someone with severe combined immunodeficiency, with a defect in antibody production -- but even this is only theoretical, with few or no proved cases. And you can't have that without being deathly ill most of the time. Your test results are conclusive. Stop testing and move on. ...Read more
