No. We strongly recommend that you seek counseling both before and after taking the self-test and regardless of your test result whether negative or positive. Counseling beforehand will give you guidance and education about the test, and it will also help prepare you for whatever result you do receive. Counseling after your test, whether tested negative or positive, will help you deal with the trauma if tested positive and give you advice about your treatment options.

The test detects specific antibodies in your blood sample, not actual HIV, and this is what produces the second line (the T line) if positive. When there is something harmful in your body, your immune system starts to produce antibodies, each of which are unique. This self-test detects the unique antibodies produced by HIV.
You will have to wait 15 minutes until the test will reveal an accurate result.
If HIV positive, a purple coloured line will appear next to C and T (i.e. Two lines), it may be a bit lighter in T based on the number of antibodies present. If you see this result, you must please confirm the accuracy of the test result with a qualified physician and seek counseling. You may call the National AIDS Helpline on 080 001 2322 for counseling and to answer all of your questions.
HIV Negative: A purple coloured line will appear next to C only (i.e. One line).
Test Invalid: No lines will appear or the purple line will appear next to T only, the test is invalid you will need to use a new kit and retest.
The test is reliable, but it is only a screening test. We insist that all positive results must be confirmed by a physician using an alternate method. Certain medications and medical conditions may affect the accuracy of the test result and therefore should be confirmed by a qualified medical practitioner.
Pregnancy tests are designed to tell if your urine or blood contains a hormone called human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG). This hormone is produced right after a fertilized egg attaches to the wall of a woman’s uterus. The pregancy test will detect the levels of hCG to determine a positive or negative result.
After taking the test, you usually have to wait only about 5-10 minutes.
For the most reliable result, wait to take the test until one week after your missed period. Then the test is usually very accurate, but you should always confirm the result with a doctor who will administer a blood test. Blood tests are more sensitive to the hCG hormone and thus are more accurate in the early stages of pregnancy.
Usually about two weeks after conception. The pregnancy test needs to detect the hCG hormone in order to show a positive result, and there is usually a high enough hCG level in urine two weeks after conception.
