About This Group:

This support group is for those who are suffering from stress or anxiety associated with uncertain HIV status. HIV anxiety is extremely isolating for those who are going through it, as it is often very difficult to discuss with friends and family members. This group is provided for sufferers of HIV anxiety to discuss their fears in a supportive environment. Those with anxiety over non-HIV STDs are also welcome. For personal advice concerning HIV risk, testing, and prevention, please post in the HIV Prevention Community.

ars or axienty?

i had unprotected sex june 2012 and i did aboott blood rapid test on feb 9 2013. the result was negative. when i did the test they used re-used finger prick tools and they did twice prick in the same finger delay time 15 sec result in the end i saw blood on the tools. i asked them and they said it was mine. what if it was not mine. would it be any possibilities of getting infected by this way? 11 days post the test, i got some symptoms like one circle rash on my left palm, one swollen lymph node behind my right ear and one on my right side of groin with green bean size redness and painful. runny nose, and dry cough. body temperature of 37.37 C, short breathing and muscle pain. all happened almost in the same time and i am so worried. this week i am going to have blood test in lab, is it accurate having test at 18 days after the test i did to make sure that i am negative?or is aboott blood rapid test accurate as my last test?thank you

I have not seen a finger prick tool that can be re-used for a HIV test. I dont belive for one moment that they would re-used a needle from one person to another as it put them as risk let alone yourself, not to mention they are trained not to do this.
