HIV Self-Testing

What is an HIV Self-Test?

An HIV self-test (or rapid self-test) is an antibody test that can be used at home or in a private location. With an HIV self-test, you can get your test results within 20 minutes.

How do I find an HIV Self-Test?

Southeast Community Health System can offer you HIV self-tests free of cost!

How do I use an HIV Self-Test?

Read the instructions included in the test kit before you start. For an HIV self-test, you must swab your gums to collect an oral fluid sample and then test your sample. Your results will be ready within 20 minutes. If you don’t follow the directions as described, the test may not work. There is a phone number included with the HIV self-test if you need help using the test. You should always interpret HIV self-test results according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Learn more about what a negative or positive test result means. If the HIV self-test is invalid, then the test did not work. You will need to use another HIV self-test or visit one of our locations.
