For testing HIV, the BeforeWeDo test box contains the Oraquick HIV1/2 Oral test. It is the most comfortable available, only requiring saliva to indicate the existence of HIV antibodies.
Since the test needs a sample of your natural saliva, it is important to not having eaten, drunk, brushed your teeth or used other dental hygiene products at least half an hour prior to doing the test. Have an alarm ready to ring 20 minutes after you took the test and have your phone close by so you can call the hotline in case any questions come up. Also read the instructions on the packaging and the directions in the test kit.
Follow the detailed instructions supplied by the test kit and emailed to you by us. Also, see the video to your left.
The test does not look for the HIV virus itself but for the antibodies that the human body produces after an infection. These antibodies are usually found within 3 months after exposure. So it is important that the test does not measure your current HIV status but that of 3 months ago within the test's accuracy.
For more information on how the test works, its accuracy (false positives / false negatives) please see the FAQ page of the Food and Drug Administration.
You should get tested at least once a year if you had unprotected sex with multiple partners or partners who did not know their HIV status. There are numerous recommendations formulated by organizations such as the Center of Disease Control or the California Department of Health. For a more detailed assessment, please contact your medical service provider. We are also happy to help you find one in your neighborhood.
With the version 1 of the BeforeWeDo Test Kit, we introduce an In-Home HIV test kit that requires no blood and delivers result on the test within 20 minutes. Covering the most concerning sexually transmitted disease test, we will add further tests to our test box in later versions.
You can put yourself at risk to contract HIV by sharing certain body fluids with a person that is infected with the virus. At highest risk are activitise like sharing needles (substance abuse), then unprotected anal and vaginal sex. For more information about HIV and AIDS, we highly recommend the AIDS.govs's HIV 101 Guide.
