HIV blood test- regular procedure at hospital emergency rooms?? STD test refusal by doctor- possible??
Hello Everyone. At the beginning of the year my girlfriend eneded up in hospital emergency room after falling down the stairs and losing conciousnes. Not too long ago I ended up in hospital and stayed overnight because of unexplainable vertigo- i could not walk. In both our cases they took blood samples from us. Now, I read online that it is a standard procedure for hospitals to test for HIV whenever they take blood from you. Is that true?? Who should I contact to find out about the blood results??
BTW shes going to get tested in a couple days for STDs. Can her ginecologist refuse her the test eventhough she had been sexually assaulted in the past without the use of a condom?? I'll mention that when she went to the doctor back then, for some weird stupid reason, they did not test her for STDs...
I was tested for hiv back in june of 2006, it came back negative, I got tested 9 months after being with anyone, I have been with my man for almost 5 years and we have been faithful to each other thru out our entire relationship. But back in the end of aug of 2009, we were at a bar, and one of our friends got into a fight and we were tryin to calm him down, in the process I got blood on my hands, but the ambulance guys were there and gave me sum antibacterial wash stuff cuz I was grossed out, and I'm kinda freaked out because I don't know if he has any disease or not, should I get tested again? Please help
