Just took the test!
      #29802 - 03/13/02 06:58 PM

I just wanted to say that I just took the at the local lab and they said it would probably only take 24 hours for results. I will call them tomorrow night. I am the one who has been posting on here lately about the encounter in 1992 that has me scared but still tested neg in 2000 with Home Access. I know everyone says to get over this and get help but I wanted to get one more test result before I go for pysch help. Please pray for me, my sick mind, and my result. Thank you

I am a counselor with Home Access Health Corporation and wanted to respond to your question regarding the accuracy of our Home Access HIV-1 test kit.

The clinical accuracy of the Home Access HIV-1 test is always 99.9%. However, it takes some time between the exposure to HIV and when the antibody becomes detectable in the body. This period is what we call the “window period”. At Home Access Health we recommend that the soonest you should take an HIV-1 test is 6 weeks after exposure to risk and then be sure to test again six months or more after the date of exposure. This policy is based on our experience with over 300,000 HIV tests performed to date and the Centers for Disease Control ( Revised Guidelines for HIV Counseling, Testing and Referral Standards November 9,2001.

Any questions regarding our test can be addressed by calling us at 1-800-HIV-TEST or through our web site at
