I am about to take the ora quick home HIV test for the first time. My exposure was a brief encounter of unprotected heterosexual sex. He took the condom off. When I realized it, I made him stop immediately. I dont think it lasted more than 20 sec. There was also unprotected oral but I dont think that was a major risk. Im really nervous but I know I gotta do this. Need encouragement...
Well then....head on over to Walmart, Walgreens...Rite Aid and buy the kit. (if you're 18 years or older...bring some sort of ID)
Don't drink, eat or use any oral hygiene products 30 minutes before the test.
Read the instructions carefully and you will get your result in 20 minutes. It is accurate.
The only caveat is the remote (very remote) chance that you might get a false positive as the test is highly sensitive. It is a rare event but it can happen. Don't panic as most are indeed "false". If you get a control line "C" (top line) and nothing at the "T" ( bottom line) then you're negative.
