About The Test

What will arrive?

Once you've ordered your free HIV test, your test kit will arrive in the mail within a few days (we send kits via 1st Class Mail).

The kits are small and discreet - the box is sent in a white plastic bag with no identifying markings or logos!

What's in the test kit?

Your kit contains all the bits you need to collect your sample and return it to our laboratory for testing.

How do I collect my sample?

Unlike some STIs such as Chlamydia (which can be tested from a urine sample), the HIV virus is blood-borne and therefore a small blood sample is the most accurate way to test for the infection.

Returning Your HIV Test

Once you've taken your sample, ensure you have completed the included form (but keep the top part - you may need it to collect your results).

Place your sample and the form back in the box and seal the box shut making sure the tab lock tightly - use the security seal provided to secure the box.

We've already paid for the postage (it's freepost), so you can simply pop the kit in your nearest postbox as soon as you can.

Getting Your Test Results

You will receive your results via the method you chose when requesting the HIV test.
