Home HIV test kits avail in LOS?

Recommended Posts

I've heard of a couple home HIV test kits and was wondering are they're available in LOS? I've heard that the MedMira test returns results in just 3 minutes.

 

I've seen prices of $20-$50 for OraQuick test kits in the USA and am hoping they'd be a lot cheaper in LOS.

Mate, I havent seen any pharmacies actually sell them but if u go to Heavens Above agogo, their hotel above it have them imported from USA and stock them in their rooms-excellent idea IMHO and you can buy more from them, I think 300 baht a pop..Its the same test they use in clinics in England too.

Every action has an equal and opposite reaction - "it was just the internet.." is not an excuse.

Seriously? Thanks; that's great news. For that cheap I'll consider making it part of my regular routine next trip.

 

And I agree, very cool - it would be great if these were a lot more widely available.

Sorry, but Galaxy Suites no longer have the test kits. Our supplier does not have a manufacturer in Thailand anymore.

I work in clinical trials - forget about this shit.

 

If testing the GF get along for a proper test with bloods. I testing a one night stand throw your money down Walking Street - its as good

its very obvious that a clinical test is better than a home test, I dont think a reference is required.

please reference the reference I made to his post. It doesn't just say it's better, it implies the home test is complete rubbish.

And a reference would be useful to quantify the difference.

Just to clarify this is way that Peelorn's post reads "its better to get your girlfriend tested at a clinic with a proper blood test or if testing a LT or ST barfine with a home kit you are throwing your money away"

the post does not read that a home test is rubbish, but as you stated his writing style needs a closer look.

Agreed it's a bit unclear, but I take his don't even bother to mean it's totally useless.

 

Some morons insist on BB-ing, so this could be useful and condoms do break. Also, I like the fact that it might make the girls think about being safer if they see we actually care.

  • 1 month later...

I dont know if I would even trust them to be accurate. 4 months back i had the full blood test here in OZ and the lab could not say if i had it or not. all they could say was there was some strange reading so do the test again in 3 months. got back from LOS and did the test again and had the same reading. they sent it to a top hospital here and then was given the all clear. so if they dont know for sure how will a home test be able to comfirm it either way??????

 

 

the risk is there are you willing to take it?????/

 

cheers

    • For those that don't know, I did Friday meetings before many years ago,  I feel like we are missing a regular meeting for members,  I am aware guys meet at PA affiliated bars. But I want to start meeting people again, I'm inviting the guys following my YouTube also.

      The meetings is a chance to get to meet each other,  I plan to be at every meeting, I also have Dean from Dive bar that has offered to help out with a crawl after.
      The meetings will be  Monday  6 pm - 8 pm each week.  (The improvised bar crawl will commence at 8 p.m.  Dean will make his own plans for that.)

      Due to low numbers of people in town, I will start the meetings in our bars to help our girls and managers, please check back often incase things are changed.  I will be sharing the love around town later, but Soi 6 is first on my list (including bars that are friendly competition)   
      If bar owners want us to have a meeting at their bar,  they need to have a minimum of 10 girls.  I'm not dragging people to empty bars for favours.
      Please help us invite other members, it takes a while to get momentum.
      Monday 6 pm - 8pm  (then bar crawl after)
      21st March - Playpen Soi 6
      28th March - Night wish bar Soi 6
      4th April - Toy Box bar Soi 6
      11th April - Repent Soi 6
      18th April - where angels play Soi 6
      25th April -  (next bar we have open)

      2nd May - (next bar we have open)
      9th May - Cooters bar soi 6 
      16th May - Hot shots bar Soi 6
      23rd May - (next bar we have open)
      30th of May - Lust soi 6
