I did the same test. I have searched too much and find out it is the most sensitive test on the earth. conclusive at 28 days according to expert and 3 months antibody test for a conservative window period for peace of mind.
I have a couple of questions...I decided to be abstinent for the past two years and I took an Oraquick test and it was negative however I started feeling real ill about a day after taking the test. I had sores in my mouth and tongue, swollen glands, sore throat and an aching body. Is that normal or one of the side effects of the Oraquick tests? Or should I go ahead and get a second opinion and take a blood sample
