Prenatal screening tests worried about Hiv

Hey everyone I had my prenatal screening done about 1.5 weeks ago and 2.5 weeks ago I had and HIV test done at the hospital because I was told I had an sti, so when I went in for treatment I asked to be tested for HIV.. I have not heard anything back from the hospital or my ob/gyn... I am so nervous for a positive result. Am I just worrying for nothing. Would I have been called from the hospital at least by now if it was +? I am 7weeks pregnant. Thank you everyone.

Do you know when exposure might have occurred?

The person I was with I was seeing off and on since August this year. So anywhere from 1-4 months ago. Have not been active since beginning of November.

I would call and request your results. Usually you will show positive within 3 months of exposure so they should be accurate - and they 'should' have it by now. Most results only take a few days (if not minutes) to get back.

If you did not hear back by two weeks then you are fine hospital don't call unless it comes back positive

No news is good news but I can completely understand where you are coming from because I would be freaking out not knowing either way. I would give the hospital or Ob a call just to ease your mind

I called my ob/gyn office and asked if my bloodwork was fine and reception said "The dr has not told me otherwise" but that was all she had said. I guess my mind is over working itself due to the fact that I was called and told I tested + for Chlamydia. It scared me and I felt so embarassed going in to the hospital to get my treatment and request the hiv testing. I have stopped all sexual contact, I am too terrified to trust someone to stay committed. Not to mention I found out I am now pregnant and refuse to get an abortion when he (ex partner) is pushing for me to do that.

I am trying not to worry too much, only problem is my next appointment isn't until mid January. I would think they wouldn't wait that long to give a result.

I had Clamidyia at age 17 and even with the 1St treatment it don't always go away so have them take Ur urine and have them test it again u won't have to have the vaginal exam
