HIV Anxiety Support User Group
trusting what's been told to me and my results
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.

trusting what's been told to me and my results

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

Hiya, your tests are fine mate. Its very unlikely you would have been this far in life if either of you had HIV and never found out. So you can relax.

Hope that helps

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
