Thank you for everybody that takes the time to answer all put questions. I am worried about having HIV. I have had the fallowing symptoms for the past couple weeks. Swollen lymph nodes in neck and armpits, headaches,sore throat, itchy skin and diarrhea night sweats too. I went to the doc and he gave me reg blood tests and all my cell counts came back normal. He put me on antibiotics for ten days and my lymph nodes are still swollen. The last unprotected sex I had was over a year ago. I have taken two oraquick oral home tests and came back negative but still have symptoms. Felt better about not having ot but then looked at the statistics of the test and it said 1 in 12 would test negative when they are really positive...could that have happened to me? Just worried and scared. I did do a blood test and should get the results tom. Sorry for the long read and thank you for taking the time to answer my ?s
the blood test is the gold standard,
it looks for some things the oraquick doesn't look for
it is very accurate approx after 15 days from exposure.
anything is possible, but it is not common for the oraquick to be wrong.
you should be ok.
let us know how you make out
