OraQuick

If you take an OraQuick at 3 months post exposure, can it be trusted?

I should've been more clear. I haven't taken one yet. But will. February 22nd is exactly 90 days post exposure. I feel like an OraQuick will be more comfortable for me. And I have another question, I know catching HIV from a one time exposures has happened, but how likely is it? Like I know it's less than 1% right?

Re: OraQuick

Well you had a high risk encounter, so i dont think its worth playing the odds game when testing now can very much confirm your status. Although not fully conclusive a test now would very much give an indication. All i can say, is fingers crossed for you.
