How do I know if my HIV self-test has been performed correctly?
The INSTI HIV self-test has a built-in checkpoint to show that the home test has been performed correctly and that you have added the right amount of blood from the fingertip. If the checkpoint is not displayed, your home test did not work. If only the checkpoint is visible, it means that your result is negative and that you probably do not have HIV. If two points are visible, your test result is positive. This means that you probably have HIV. Although the results of the INSTI HIV self-test are very accurate, you MUST confirm a positive result as soon as possible that has been confirmed by a physician to begin treatment immediately.
