Pro tip: Free HIV Testing: UK 

In the beginning of the pandemic, and first lockdown in the UK, Public Health England declared that we had an unprecedented chance to get HIV under control, with people being in lockdown and not at risk of spreading it.
If people get tested, and they know if they have it we can reduce the spread.

Unless you've not had any sex at all since you last got tested, I'd highly recommend to do it now, before everything goes back to "normal".

You can get tested for free. It's easy to order, comes in a discreet package, and it's fairly easy to get done.

Do read the instructions before starting though, sincerely someone who stabbed their fingers 3 times today.

HIV Testing, personal 

I ordered it a few months ago, and was never able to quite do it on my own, but today I got help from my housemates, and we did it (hope I didn't take too long).

I don't think I have a huge chance of having contracted HIV, but the chance isn't null, especially after my 2019 summer of love. :blobsweats:

But this way, I will know, and future partners will know if I'm clean or not.

People are most infectious in the first two weeks after contracting HIV. This is a real chance to get new transmissions to zero.

@celesteh I didn't know this part!

@maloki As far as I remember when I got tested it a drop of blood was taken like those blood sugar strips. Was it any different on your home test?

@return_0 yes. But it's also a syphilis test, so you send in a small vial of blood.

@queerchangeling I'm sorry I made a mistake. I'm not from around here, so sometimes I screw this up.

@queerchangeling I just realized what happened, I search for hiv free testing uk. I assumed it would show results that was for the UK.
