Oraquick test are conclusive at 12 weeks from what I understand. And you hade unprotected sex with a csw. Who apparently is ok with having unprotected sex. The prudent thing to do is get a full panel test of std not just limited to HIV at 6 weeks. As your risk is not zero. If you get negative results consider yourself lucky. Remember it will only take you 2 minutes to wear a condom. But a lifetime to carry HIV.
Do symptoms have to start before you can test positive? When I tested, I barely had any thing out of the ordinary. Now I have a cough and feeling rundown and headaches and etc etc. Nothing major and could be contributed to the weather changing. I highly doubt I'll be the first person to test negative at 6 weeks only to test positive later.
Would the finger pick test done in a lab be more conclusive right now or a complete blood test (2 week result one)?
Lab based blood draw and test at 8-6 weeks, any quick test is 12 weeks.
Scheduled to have blood drawn tomorrow at a lob which is day 47. When it comes back negative (being optimistic here) I guess I can finally relax a lot more. What is your opinion on this test at this point in the whole spiel?
Got my results back today. My HIV test, not sure exactly which one was used, came back negative. The blood was drawn on day 47. With this negative result, am I clear or do I still have a need to worry until my 3 month test?
