How to check your HIV 1 & 2 levels with a home fingerprick blood test kit

What Is A HIV 1 & 2 Test For?

A HIV 1 & 2 test is also known as a HIV Serology Test, HIV Screening Test, AIDS Test or an AIDS Screen test.

Human Immunodeficiency Virus - HIV - exists as two species of virus which target your immune system. Over time this progressively weakens your immune system leading to acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS).

This reduces your ability to fight disease and infections.

There are two types of HIV - 1 and 2 - and discriminating between them is clinically important. The latest testing technology is used to detect HIV with maximum sensitivity.

Early symptoms can be very mild so you should get tested if you have been at risk.

What If HIV 1 & 2 Test is Negative or not Detected?

What If HIV 1 & 2 Test is Negative or not Detected?

Your test returned a 'Not Detected' result for HIV. The presence of antibodies to HIV Type 1 and Type 2 and the p24 Antigen was not detected.

A negative result on a 4th generation HIV blood test performed four weeks after possible exposure excludes HIV infection with a high degree of certainty (~95%).

To be as certain as possible it is highly recommended to be re-tested at three months post-exposure.

 


 

Note that a negative HIV blood test result cannot completely rule out the possibility of HIV infection due to variation between individuals and how the HIV virus develops.

After you have been exposed to HIV there is a period of time called seroconversion, during which the virus reproduces and your body produces antibodies to levels that are detectable in the blood.

Samples taken from either the very early phase (preseroconversion) of HIV development or the late phase of HIV infection can sometimes return a negative test result. As yet unknown HIV variants could also lead to a negative HIV finding.

In some rare cases, it is also possible for seroconversion to take longer than normal.


 

For those who remain sexually active and/or are a part of a high-risk group, the recommendation is to have an HIV test every three months.

The test can be done more frequently if there is a potential HIV exposure. Sharing needles, lack of condom use when having sex (especially anal sex), or experiencing an incidence of a broken condom that occurred during sexual penetration, are all good reasons to suspect HIV exposure.

    All STI testing is conducted entirely by trained biomedical scientists and other healthcare professionals. As a medically-led laboratory, a team of up to 16 consultant doctors are responsible for laboratory clinical governance.

    Once test analysis has been completed to our high standards, your results are processed and a personalised report created.

    Your report clearly explains your test results and can include comparison against normal (reference) ranges, current NHS & NICE guidelines, general health guidance and recommended actions for follow up.

  • Who is a Home STI Test Suitable For?

    Our home test kits are for those who want the convenience of home testing with the reassurance of professional clinical laboratory analysis.

    Home STI Checks are advised if you have:

    • had unprotected sexual intercourse.
    • have a partner who has been diagnosed with an STI.
    • have entered a new sexual relationship with someone.
    • are experiencing symptoms that indicate the presence of an STI.

    However, as many STIs express no symptoms it’s important to get tested if you are at risk.

  • How Does A STI Home Test Work?

    Taking an STI test from home is an affordable alternative to visiting a doctor or a private clinic.

    There’s no need to make an appointment or take time off work.

    If you test positive for HIV then a second test is required for confirmation. This helps decide where to be referred to for treatment and additional support. We recommend discussing with the HIV specialists at the fantastic Terrence Higgins Trust and/or making an appointment at your nearest GUM clinic.
