What was your exposure and how long ago was it?

A little over a month

A month is a bit too early for Oraquick. Take a DUO test now or another Oraquick at 8 weeks and 3 months.

And you didn't say what your exposure was?

Hiv exposure and the duo isn't available in the us as of yet... If I take a blood test do you think it'll be the same results ?

Yes, the DUO is available in the U.S. It got approved last June.

Clearly you had an HIV exposure. Like what was the activity.

I can't seem to find a clinic that has it ... And vaginal sex with a man

Then take an antibody test at 6-8 weeks then again in 3 months. Was the sex unprotected?
