FDA Approves In-Home HIV Test!!!!!!!!!!

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) just approved OraQuick, an in-home HIV test!

It works by taking an oral fluid sample by swabbing the upper and lower gums inside the mouth and can provide results in 20 to 40 minutes.

ISN’T THAT AWESOME?! People will no longer have to wait like,  two weeks while waiting to hear back from a doctor.

The agency said, even if someone gets a positive result, that doesn’t mean they 100% have HIV, but that they should get some additional testing done in a medical setting to confirm the test.
