I used the oraquick rapid test at home 3, 4, 5, 6 and 7

Customer Question

I used the oraquick rapid test at home 3, 4, 5, 6 and 7 months after unprotected sex with my ex boyfriend and all of the results came back negative. Can i trust these results? I followed the directions to the letter. I know anxiety is getting the better of me in this.

Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.

Yes oraquick tests after 3 months are very sensitive.

hence negative tests after that are very reliable.

You do not need to worry.

Hello,

You can absolutely trust the results, HIV test is done at 4 weeks, next 3 months, and then at 6 months.

As you have completed all the tests, you can trust them.

Good day!

it's reliable even though its a home test? I even used a flashlight to check for a line. Maybe a bit excessive.

Hi there,

I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

Although you do not need, you can get a 4th generation HIV antigen antibody test done.

A negative test completely rules out HIV.

This is more sensitive test than oraquick test.
