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.
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.
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.
