If you believe you have been exposed to HIV and want help to judge your risk, would like advice about HIV testing, or have questions about the effectiveness of condoms or risks associated with specific sexual practices, this is the site for you.
Hello! I am seeking advice as to whether I should continue testing based on the following results or if these can be considered conclusive. These tests were all taken after being on the receiving end of unprotected vaginal intercourse with a partner of an unknown status:
2 weeks - negative HIV serology
6 weeks - negative OraQuick in-home oral test
9 weeks - negative OraQuick in-home oral test
12 weeks - negative OraQuick in-home oral test
Today at 13 weeks I have a sore throat. This couldn't possibly be delayed ARS or seroconversion?
Just one follow up questions before I can put this behind me (finally!)...
You said my 12 week was conclusive - so in your opinion, you consider my OraQuick in-home oral test that I performed on my self accurate and reliable at 12 weeks? I only ask because I've read on other forums that OraQuick, especially when self-performed, is not definitive.
Ready to move on so again, I thank you for your selfless dedication to this forum!
