I really have been struggling with this issue and can't seem to do anything but read online... I think I seem to find all the horror stories.
I really need some help about 8 or 9 years ago I had unprotected sex with a women of unknown status. A year later I met my wife and we have been monogamous for 7 years now. She had a similar indecent to me prior to us meeting 1 or 2 unprotected intercourse sessions. Since then neither one of us have had an HIV test and over this time I have had shingles and she has had vial Pharyngitis. Well for the last 2 years we have been trying to start a family andthe Dr has ordered an HIV test. I was scared to death that I took 4 of the new oraquick rapid oral HIV antibodie test. The one s you take at home. All four came back negative no question...I followed the directions of the test to a T. Finally I asked my wife to take one and she did it came back negative. I am scared that when my wife goes to the doctor at the end of the month to have her blood test its going to show something different. I man what are the odds of 5 false negatives . Are they conclusive, the other anxiety is the tests are knew and could be complete junk. The anxiety is liking me I am a shell of myself.what should I do
We have never had a true HIV test until now... We have barely.ever get sick I just want to know that my rapid oral test over the past week are conclusive. I have taken 4 and my wife has taken 1 all negative. The last exposure we has besides each other would have been 6 or 7 years ago. Just don't want the blood test to show something different. So sorry just going crazy here
We both tested with the oraquick oral swab at home HIV test. I used 4 test and she used 1. They all came back negative. This was last week. Our last exposure outside of each other would have been 7 years so. Just want to know that these rapid test are good and not to expect anything different when she has blood taken later this month
