What does this test do?

OraQuick is an in-vitro diagnostic home-use test for HIV (HIV-1 and HIV-2) in oral fluid. This HIV test works by looking for your body's response to fighting the HIV virus (antibodies). Use only as an oral test. Do not use this test with blood, plasma, semen, vaginal fluid, urine, sweat, or breast milk. Use this test only as directed.

When should I use this test?

This test can detect HIV infection if used 3 months after a risk event. Using this test earlier than 3 months since a risk event may not produce an accurate result. If you test within the first 3 months, you should test again 3 months after the risk event.

  • Sex with someone who is HIV positive or whose HIV status you don't know

  • If you are age 17 or older
When should I not use this test?
