The OraQuick HIV Self-Test is a private, and accurate way to test for HIV in your own home. It is the same test preferred by many public health professionals.
The OraQuick test uses oral fluid to check for HIV-1 and HIV-2. It can give you results in about 20 minutes, and if you follow the instructions carefully the OraQuick oral fluid test can detect 91.7 percent of people who are infected with HIV, and 99.9 percent of people who are not infected with HIV. Because the test is a "screening" test, it is always advised to have a second test to confirm your results.
The OraQuick test should only be used to test for HIV, and should not be used for other purposes. If you need to be tested for pregnancy or for a sexually transmitted disease (STD) or other infection, please contact your doctor or healthcare provider. He or she can help you get tested.
