Home testing

Question:
Can I buy home kits to test myself?

Answer:
We suggest that you check out the following website for information on home testing: http://www.fda.gov/cber/infosheets/hiv-home2.htm. This will be most relevant if you are living in the USA, but has good information, even if you are outside the USA. We especially draw your attention to the importance of counselling as an important part of HIV testing. Counselling not only provides you with an interpretation of what positive or negative results really mean, but provides information on how to keep from getting infected if you are negative, and how to prevent transmission of disease if you find you are infected. Counselling also provides you with information about treatment options if you are infected.
