Information

  • When should you test yourself with the INSTI HIV home test?

    If you notice any of the HIV symptoms and have come into contact with HIV, we recommend that you do an HIV home test. We recommend that you test yourself if you are sexually active, have multiple sexual partners, use intravenous drugs, or have sex with someone who has HIV.

    Testing is quick and easy and requires only a small amount of blood. You can also have HIV tests performed by your doctor or the government health organization. If you prefer to test yourself at home in a familiar environment without anyone else, order an INSTI HIV home test. You can order the test on our website.

  • How accurate is the HIV home test?

    Many research studies have shown that the HIV self-test is extremely accurate if it is performed correctly. The accuracy of medical HIV tests is determined by the sensitivity (that all actually positive individuals are tested positively) and the accuracy (that all actual negative persons are tested negative). The INSTI HIV self-test has a sensitivity of 99.8-100% and an accuracy of 99.5-99.8%.

  • What if the result is negative?

    Continue your efforts to prevent exposure to HIV, such as having safe sex and other preventive methods. If you think you have run a risk in the past 3 months, repeat the test after 3 months.
    If you live in a situation where you are at more risk, it is recommended to test every 3-12 months.

  • What if the result is positive?

    Consult your doctor or nearest test facility for a comparison result. Keep in mind that each HIV home test is only a screening test and not a definitive diagnosis.
    What if your result is invalid or you are not sure whether you have applied the test correctly?
    Visit your doctor or the nearest testing facility for further HIV tests.
