Continue with the test procedure. The test result is valid as long as the control dot is visible (even if it is faint) after pouring Bottle 3 into the test device.  

Be sure to visit our Before you take a test page for some information we think will help prepare you to take the test, and our Care pathways pages for more information about services available for HIV care and prevention near you.  

If you want help before, during or after you test and you are a participant of the I’m Ready research program or are curious about joining the program and want to learn more, our peer navigators are available to support you through our I’m Ready, Talk secure telehealth service.
