I had unprotected vaginal sex with a worker in Africa. I am waiting on a home testing kit. How reliable is the Discreet testing kit from Canada? Thanks from Drunk and Stupid!!!!!!!
| Response from Mr. Kull
I am not familiar with the Discreet testing kit. Testing performed at a doctor's office, health department, or lab in your country should provide reliable and accurate testing. However, tests that you order over the internet may not be reliable, especially if they are not approved by the FDA or its equivalent. If you live in the United States, only one rapid test has been approved (Home Access) for home use. See my response to Testing for HIV for more info.
