Self-test for HIV
We offer a self-testing kit for HIV at a preferential price of € 20 in the Hannöverschen AIDS-Hilfe e.V.
This can be purchased here and used at home, but you can also test yourself here in the company of a consultant. The individual risk is clarified with the consultant before the test. During the test we pay attention to the correct execution, but we are not allowed to lend a hand ourselves. And of course we will continue to help with advice and help, whatever the test result will be.
What is an HIV self-test?
An HIV self-test is an HIV test that is easy to do yourself, for example, at home. Some blood is removed from the fingertip and placed in a test device. To do this, you have to stab with a lancing device in the fingertip (leave). The HIV self-test indicates the result after about a quarter of an hour. Like other common test methods, the self-test does not detect HIV directly but antibodies to the virus. Attention: The antibodies will form after some time. Therefore, the test can only rule out after 12 weeks that an infection has occurred. The result “HIV-negative” is only reliable when the possible transmission is twelve weeks ago. The test can often prove an existing HIV infection earlier.
How safe are the self-tests?
According to the manufacturer, the HIV self-test “Exacto HIV Test” offered by us has a sensitivity of more than 99% and is recommended by Deutsche AIDS-Hilfe e.V.. The application is very simple, you only need one drop of blood.
How much does the self-test cost?
The self test costs 20€ (35€ for couples)
The optional counselling and accompanied application is free.
