I had unprotected sex...

I had unprotected sex with a not so great girl 9 weeks ago. I haven’t had any symptoms but i have been freaking out. So i got the OraQuick test and had a sip of water 25 min prior and the test came out NEG. should i take this as a Neg result and move on or would the sip of water 25min prior affect the outcome.

Doctor's Assistant: Is this your first time reaching out for information about this? In general, how would you describe your overall health?

Hello and thank you for your question. My name is***** am a board-certified physician with over 15 years of clinical experience and I am here to help you. Can you tell me please, what type of unprotected sexual activity did you have with this female partner 9 weeks ago? Vaginal intercourse? Anal penetration? Oral receptive (blow job)?

Vaginal

Thank you for that information. The sip of water 25 minutes prior to the OraQuik test would not have altered the results in any significant way. However, the OraQuik test was designed to be taken 3 month post-exposure, anything beforehand has a risk of being a false negative. So while a negative test result is certainly reassuring, I definitely recommend repeating the test in 1 month, without any further high risk exposures during that time, to further confirm this initial negative test result.

Can I answer any other questions for you today?

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
