How can I be sure that I have used the test correctly?

During the waiting time until the test result, a coloured line must appear - the "control line". If the control line does not appear, it means that the test was used incorrectly or did not work.

If the test result is unclear, the test should be repeated. Either with another HIV self-test or an HIV antibody/antigen test in the regional Aids Hilfethe patient's doctor, a laboratory or the family doctor.
