I bought a oraquick hiv home test kit yesterday and I tested negative. How accurate are these tests? Also I brushed my teeth around 25min before taking the test and believe I swabbed only the top and bottom gums on the left side of my mouth. Will this
affect the results at all or am I fine?

No This test is not very good at all. About 1 in 12 people infected with Hiv will test falsely negative. It has little to do with how you swabbed. You should get a blood test if you are concerned.

One more question. If I take more than one with a negative result would that be greater conformation? And I'm scheduled for a doctors appointment on the 10th
OB GYN Doctor: Dr. K., MD replied 2 years ago

No Thats not any better confirmation. You need a blood test

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.

I'm back. I had my blood drawn for hiv rna on 31st October
I'm back. I had my blood drawn for hiv rna on 31st October 2017 at the LabCorp and the next morning I breastfed my baby of 5 month. After that I heard that LabCorp reuse needles so I called the lab and asked the woman who drew my blood what kind of needle it was and if it was covered by plastic her answer was I opened in front of you and it was sterile. I tried to remember what I saw during and remembered that there was a red stain between the needle connecting the cap and that scarred me more so I stopped breastfeeding n called my baby's pediatrician's office to get the PEP in case. the nurse there confirmed that with LabCorp we can't guarantee anything but PEP can't be provided without proof. Now since last week after a month and 12 days, I have chills and mild fever and my baby has mild fever. My question is : what are the chances to get through breasfeeding if I was infected with hiv through the needle and what are the chances of getting it from contaminated needle? And how to prove this kind of procedure cause I feel it has happened. … read more
