Home access test question-problem
Hiya.  I have just taken my blood sample for a home access hiv 1 test.  I waited the three months as was recomend by this and other sites.  I am worried because when I cleaned my finger with the little alcohol wipe included.  I then used the little lancet and took the sample but when i let the blood run off my finger onto the sample pad My finger was still a little wet and the blood looked like it got a little runny from the alcohol.  Well, I tried to put as much blood as i could.  I was supposed to dry my finger first and i called the company, the girl I spoke with said it would PROBABLY not affect the test.  Well, "probably" worries me.  If i get the result back and it is negative should i trust it or retest.  Thankya! I don't want to spend another 40 bucks and i live far from and health dept to get a test. Oh god how stupid of me!
