How good is the Oraquick...
How good is the Oraquick Swab Home Test? I recently took 3 of them (each back to back to back days) and all 3 came out with the line only on C. My only incident was 8 years ago with a female unprotected sex. Are these test still good even after all these years? Stressed and anxious.

Hello and thanks for trusting me to help you. I am a board-certified consultant with over 30 years of experience. I’m reviewing your question and reply you soon.

Ask Your Own HIV and AIDS Question

I understand your concern.

Well as you describe, if there was no history of unprotected sex recently, then I can assure you 100% that you are safe.

If there's one line next to the "C" and no line next to the "T," your result is negative and these results are conclusive.

No need to worry and further testing.

Let me know if you have any further query so we can discuss it thoroughly in every aspect.

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

Corrie MollPretoria, South Africa

ClaudiaAlbuquerque, NM

KevinBeaverton, OR

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

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!!
