Honestly I"m not sure about them..

I'm in the same spot you are. I did three from Tysonbio all neg. QuikPac.

Seems legit but I guess the only way to know is to go to a doctor. Or get the home access test.

If you find anything about the home tests let me know. I'll do the same.

think they are pretty accurate? the reason they are not for sale in uk and states is because of councelling and people interpet a neg as a pos.

went to london doctor on saturday was spinnig out, with some little spots for the western dot (all negative thank god) on saturday and he said they are acurate but only the ce approved ones. i used the mirates one and rang them 3 times to ask questions they were very helpfull. www.mirates.com

Thanks for the good news.

And grats to your good news of Negs.


I've ordered a Home Access test so I'm just waiting for that to come in. If after that I still can't let my mind at ease then I'll go see a doctor. If then after that I think I"m going to drink for a week straight to forget everything... :D just joking.

I looked at your site. The test look just the same but a different label/name. So thats cool.

Well thanks,

Yep they don't ship to the US, but that's okay I have ways around that. I know people outside the US that'll send it to me. The internet is a great tool. Anyways yeah i got the package. Today. And it's negs too. So I'm going to relax a little. I'm sure I'll get another in the future considering my paranoia if so it'll be from a doctor.

i took both these test.. tyson (2) and mirates (2) all 4 NEG and they got rid of my anxiety for awhile but it keeps coming back because of what feels like lumps under my armpits and some lymph nodes that are swollen near my collar bone (that i won't stop poking at)... i finally went and got a tests at a Public Health lab but I have to wait 3 weeks.. i still have 2 weeks to wait and am driving myself crazy with worry.... just wondering if any people who posted on here have any comments on the products or know if there actually valid (just to ease my worry a bit)
