Being an analytical person, everything in me says trust the facts; however, she told me that the staff at PP told her that I was the first person in her "risk window, and the 3.5-4 month test simply confirmed the prior test (shortly before me)" so of course that has left me a wreck waiting to get blood work done, and obviously what led me to this original post (OraQuick Accuracy), since I tested twice with it. I'm sure the staff at PP were leaning on the side of doing the right thing and making sure everyone even possible gets tested; however, that seems a bit aggressive on the window.View Thread
Like everyone else, I am super OCD about these kinds of things, and I'd like to run my scenario by you and get your take, as you seem quite knowledgeable on this topic.
I had unprotected vaginal intercourse with someone about 9 months ago. This same person was tested shortly before me (negative), and then about 3.5-4 months after me (negative again). A couple of days ago this person contacted me to let me know that they tested HIV positive this week; however, she has been with multiple partners after myself, and we have had no sexual relations post the one encounter 9 months ago. Of course, like everyone else on here, I darted out and purchased an OraQuick home test to find out if I was the carrier, I tested negative. Paranoia of course set in and so I made an appointment to receive the full battery of tests with my primary physician, but couldn't get in for a couple of days, so with anxiety being its evil self I ran out and purchased another OraQuick from a different retailer (so to be sure it was from a different batch), and again tested negative... I've read how close to a statistical zero it would be for BOTH OraQuick home tests to render the same false result, but I guess I'd just like to hear your take on the matter. Thank you!View Thread
