Then get a lab test.
3 months is conclusive, that's all we can tell you. No doubt that the oraquicks are less accurate and sensitive than blood tests, but overall, they are pretty reliable.
Not much more to say, if you're questioning an oraquick result, then use a different testing method. If your concern is anxiety based (I would bet), you will find reasons to doubt any tests, doctors, etc. That's anxiety for you.
Thanks. I know 3 months is conclusive. If Oraquick is less accurate, do I have to get a blood test. Or can I believe these results i got from Oraquick and move on?
In other words, if i wasn't anxious and you were my doctor, would you ask (not recommend) me to get a lab test.
You can confirm the result with a simple hiv test at a clinic . Keep calm till the confirmation :)
I understand that...I want to know if nursegirl, who I understand would see a lot of cases similar to mine would ask me to take a test in spite of 4 oraquick negative results. All of them after 4 months. I will take a test as soon as I can.
I thought these tests were confirmatory and I did not have to worry. I feel like I'm back to where I started.
All tests can give false negatives, you tested conclusively negative. You don't have an HIV concern.
There are no tests marketed or sold that will give a conclusive negative test result earlier than 3 months post exposure.
