Hello there, I am confused as i don''t know if your are confused about how quickly the actual hiv test was. Or if your have to wait 3 months for an accurate result?

hiv test negative?

A: Be positive! It can take up to 7 years for your body to show signs but it usually will only take about 4. if u had intercourse with an infected person then you have a 100% chance of getting it! And as far as your blood signs are showing itself negative you ain''t gotta worry! Normally as soon as the virus enters the body blood tests will show positive within an hour or it depends with the viruses multiplying rate. I think you are safe.

Is it right that New York is making it mandotory for hiv testing?

A: I am so much for freedom I can''t believe my answer but I think it is a good idea. hiv is caught from other people. I used to work in a hospital cleaning. In the psych dept their was a chart & it showed if a person had hiv believe me. I was not going to go into a room alone with that person & risk them attacking me. I was so cautious. I imagine this will help protect people in some way so if I have to be tested so that others will be held accountable if they infect someone then it is worth it. I think mandatory testing is a good idea, and wish my state would require it. hiv is VERY serious. It can lead to AIDS. hiv is a virus that damages the immune system...


What is the Oraquick hiv Test?

A: Since hiv was first recognized in 1981, it has led to the deaths of more than 25 million people, making it one of the worst modern pandemics. Part of the problem with hiv is that it may take some time for symptoms to show, and during that period it can be easily transferred to sexual partners. Although various forms of protection can lower the incidence of infection, none are absolutely perfect, making regular testing important for anyone with multiple sexual partners, and a good idea for everyone. The Oraquick hiv test is a fast and easy test, intended to reduce the commitment necessary to get a test, to inspire more people to remain regularly tested. Standard hiv...

Anyone who has had an hiv test..?

A: its just a blood test....but its not common to get it from a guy so dont freak until you know if you do or not.... For the record I have been knowingly hiv positive since July ‘05. Q:”What do they do, and how long does it take for the results to come in?” A: Go to a cdc (center for disease control) found in a health department for free anonymous testing. Either call and schedule a testing time or go in and wait. As far as the time it varies due to how far they must send off the sample or if they do the testing on site. Where I live it’s relatively slow, about two weeks. Q:”How do you deal with the fear?” A: Not knowing whether or not you have an STD or may be pregnant is scary for everyone....


hiv TEST

A: Hello Again Ibrahim, Whenever some asks whether there is "ANY PERSON IN THE WORLD..." there is NO way to answer this question. No one can answer this question with the 100% certainty. If an hiv infected person had sex with someone who was hiv +, can they have an Negative hiv test 3 months after the sex and then become positve afterwards? YES. testing yourself 3 months after sex and then a month later once again, should make you as close to 100% certain.   The only way to be absolutely 100% certain is not to have sex or have any possible blood exposure, ever. This is not possible. Stop obsessing about something that you don"t have. You were tested several times, and all...


What are the Possible hiv Test Results?

A: hiv testing is over 99% accurate, but the results can still be confusing. While a positive or negative result is self-explanatory, some people receive an indeterminate result. To better understand hiv test results, it is helpful to understand some of the basics of hiv testing. When someone becomes infected with the hiv virus, the body produces antibodies to fight the virus. The antibodies that humans produce are not potent enough to fight off the virus, but they are present in the system of anyone infected with hiv. The antibodies can be found in blood, urine and oral fluid, which is different than saliva.
