Oral Swab HIV test

If you've made the decision to get tested for HIV, it's normal to feel anxious about the results. Waiting for the information from a blood test to come back can be very nerve-wracking. If you're like many people, you may be searching for a way to get results more quickly. An oral swab HIV testing kit from Walgreens can help you quickly test in the privacy of your own home. The kit of your choice can be discreetly shipped to you, offering convenience and time savings.

Should I Test for HIV?

Experts recommend that all adults in the United States undergo an HIV test at least once in their lifetime and those who may be at an increased risk due to a history of unprotected sex, drug use or another concern be tested more frequently. For those who test positive, there are treatments available. These treatments are most successful when they are started soon after a person contracts HIV, making it important that you test quickly if you think you may have been exposed to the virus.

How Does the Oral HIV Test Work?

Oral swab HIV tests are performed with a special device that is approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. The device is rubbed along the mouth to collect a sample of saliva. The test can detect whether or not there are HIV antibodies present in the bodily fluid. These antibodies are produced by the immune system after HIV is contracted and are only found in people who have the disease. Unlike other HIV tests, the oral swab does not require you to draw blood to obtain a sample. The test displays an easy-to-interpret result within a very short period of time.

Are Oral HIV Tests Accurate?

The latest oral swab HIV tests are up to 99.9 percent accurate but only when they are used correctly. Reading the instructions carefully, taking your time and following them properly can help you ensure an accurate reading. If you get a positive result, experts recommend that you contact your doctor or health care provider as soon as possible to get a blood test to confirm the findings.
