Sick taking Oraquick
If I have a cold, will my Oraquick results be accurate? I've had a cold for 3 days and I'm testing after possible HIV exposure from last September, and the September prior.

A cold would have nothing to do with antibodies of HIV produced by your body.
What were your risks?

Unprotected topping, bottoming, and oral with 3 different males. I just have a sore throat and a few symptoms on that level so I'd like to ensure accuracy before testing

A cold won't affect your test.

PLEASE use condoms for any anal sex.  If you continue to take those kinds of risks, you're likely to end up infected at some point.  Oral isn't an HIV risk.

I know, if the result is that I'm negative, condoms will be used with any new sexual partners. Thanks for your help
