Hi,

It might be a weird question but I did a HIV test (free test at home kit). In one of the steps it asked me to turn the sample tube with my blood 5 times upside down. However, my blood didn’t ‘move’ or rotate whatsoever. Does this mean my blood has clotted already?

yes, but it might have been the stuff in the tube making it clot

I agree but on the video they mentioned to rotate the tube so it doesn’t clot. I’m really worried haha. Sorry!

Sounds like you've done an SH:24 test. It's fine, don't worry - my blood sometimes does this when I do those tests. This won't affect the accuracy.
