STD Self tests

To determine if you have STD, nothing better than doing a test. Most STDs are not complicated but they can lead to serious complications if you do not address them in time. Unpleasant situations like irreversible damage and contamination can be avoided with a simple test. It is sad that people leave a STD untreated for too long when it could be treated so easily. By not knowing they have or simply because they are embarrassed, a simple STD can lead to contaminating others. This is why the STD self-tests offers an ideal solution. Just use it in the privacy of your home and check the result. If you do get a positive result, you may even start right away a treatment by ordering the right medication, anonymously of course.

This STD self-test can get you fast and accurate results so please don’t hesitate to use it if you suspect you could have been infected with an STD. You can test for three types: Chlamydia, Gonorrhoea and Trichomonas. There is even the possibility to check with which disease your symptoms match. That disease can then be tested separately as more separate self-tests are included.

HIV test in pharmacy frequently asked questions (FAQ)

In the whole article talking about tests, unless otherwise specified, reference will be made to the self- test that can be purchased in the pharmacy and not to the HIV test to be done in the laboratory, which is instead examined. This page does NOT replace the opinion of your doctor and the information contained in the HIV test for self-diagnosis, which is the subject of the article.

What is HIV?

The human immunodeficiency virus, known as HIV, causes AIDS by infecting and damaging part of the body's immune defenses.

To date, the disease caused by this virus is manageable, provided that it is diagnosed early.

How is HIV transmitted?

HIV can be transmitted through direct contact with blood, sperm, vaginal fluids of someone who has been infected (in addition to breast milk in the case of vertical transmission); contact usually occurs by exchanging needles or through unprotected sexual intercourse with an HIV-positive person.

A newborn can contract HIV from the mother who is infected.

Sexual transmission is the most impacting transmission method in Italy and, to learn more about which types of relationship are at greatest risk, please refer to this page.

What is the test for? Is not a blood test or observation of symptoms enough?

For a certain diagnosis of the infection, it is necessary to undergo the specific test, because normal blood tests and any symptoms do not give useful information up to the most advanced stages of the disease, which can appear after many years from the infection.

Where can I take the test?

Until recently it was possible to undergo the test, through a blood test, in any laboratory or hospital and, except for occasional awareness campaigns, there were no alternatives; Instead, it is now possible to buy a test in a pharmacy to check your condition in just a few minutes.

It is recommended to read the enclosed documentation in full to understand exactly the limits and meaning of the test.

How does the self-test work?

The test is based on taking a small amount of blood from the fingertip, with a special disposable tool present inside the sample. The test takes about 5 minutes, plus 15 minutes to read the result.

It's safe?

If used correctly, the HIV self-test ensures very high reliability, close to 100%; more specifically the test is recognized (source: test pack)

a sensitivity of 100% (that is, all HIV-positive subjects are correctly recognized),
a specificity of 99.8% (there is, therefore, a very small risk of false positive, ie a positive result in a healthy subject). Precisely for this reason in case of a positive outcome, it is essential to contact your doctor for laboratory confirmation.

This high sensitivity is obviously achieved by carefully following the instructions contained in the package.

Can I take the test immediately after the risk behavior?

No, unfortunately, it is necessary to wait for the window period; in the case of the self-test, it is equal to 3 months, therefore doing the test before this time you risk to detect false negatives.

In this regard it is very important to emphasize that:

  • In the event that the risk behavior has just occurred, possibly less than 4 hours and in any case, not more than 72 hours, it is necessary to quickly contact the ER to evaluate Post Exposure Prophylaxis, a therapy that can drastically reduce the risk of infection. 
  • With the tests available in the hospital and in private laboratories, very reliable results can be obtained as early as 30 days after the report.

What does the test detect?

The test detects in the blood the presence of antibodies produced by the body and directed against the virus, for this, it is necessary to wait up to three months (the maximum time in which the organism reacts to the infection producing the relative antibodies).

On the other hand, laboratory tests allow us to look for portions of the virus itself, thus shortening the time for a diagnosis.

What should I do if the result is negative?

If the result of the self-test is negative it means that the patient has not been infected with HIV, provided that the exposure has not occurred in the last three months before the test, in which case it will be necessary to repeat it. The documentation advises repeating the precautionary test after a few more months.

What should I do if the result is positive?

Contact a doctor as soon as possible to inform him of the result of the test.
As for the traditional tests carried out in the hospital, a second confirmation is required, through a western-blot test carried out in the hospital. False positives are rare but possible, ie positive results in healthy subjects, but the western-blot test can definitively clarify the situation. In the event of a positive outcome, an infectious disease center will be contacted and be followed.

What other tests are available?

  • HIV-Ab / Ag: This is by far the most common test and the one normally used in the hospital; detects antibodies and p24 antigen. Guarantees reliability close to 100% already in a month, even if repetition is recommended at three months from risk behavior.
  • HIV-Western Blot: Confirmation test used in case of another positive test.
  • Saliva test: Uncommon it allows the response to be obtained within 20 minutes by searching for antibodies on a saliva sample.

What does the pack of autotests you buy at the pharmacy contain?

A sealed sachet containing, 1 autotest, 1 cap containing a reagent liquid, 1 safety scalpel, 1 patch, support, a sterile gauze, a disinfectant wipe, an instruction sheet.

Is there anything that can interfere with the test result?

To date, no drugs, diseases, or foods are known ... which could influence the outcome of the HIV test. Instead, they can be the cause of false negatives:

  • Advanced immunodeficiency situations,
  • infection with a rare variant of HIV,
  • execution on seropositive subjects on antiretroviral therapy.

Can I take the test and then read the result tomorrow morning?

No, the result is reliable if read after 15 minutes from the moment the test device is inserted on the support and not beyond 20 minutes.

The test is negative, can I feel comfortable?

If the result is negative, it is necessary to verify that you are not in the window period, ie that you have not had any risk behavior (reports, blood contact, ...) in the last three months.

Attention, a negative result does not exclude the presence of other possible sexually transmitted diseases.

The test is positive, am I definitely sick?

It is likely that he has actually been infected, but 2 out of 1000 people can get a false positive (and be healthy). Contact a doctor as soon as possible to check, because the test must be confirmed by an examination carried out in an analysis laboratory. Meanwhile continue to use condoms, ALWAYS.

The test is neither positive nor negative, what does it mean?

The result is invalid and does not allow any consideration and must, therefore, be repeated; this may occur in the event of procedural errors or failed tests. In case of repeated invalid tests contact a doctor.
