Good afternoon all. Just wanted to ask if my 6 month Oraquick in-home oral swab test is conclusive, it was negative. I can’t help but read that these tests have a 1 in 12 false positive even after the “window period” of 3 months. My girlfriend wants to settle down and has been talking about having a family. I have taken 6-8 Oraquick in-home oral swab tests since my unprotected intercourse with a female at the beginning of august last year, all negative. I had tonsilitis, sore throat and fever 5-6 days after that encounter.
If you guys could help me out, I would greatly appreciate it. Just confused on the sensitivity/specificity of this test out to 6 months and wondering if I even need to get a blood test.
