Can someone help me. I am absolutely terrified. I am in

Resolved Question:

Can someone help me.
I am absolutely terrified. I am in the UK. I have just been to the clinic for a full STI check up after having period problems. I haven't had any sexual contact with a guy for 15 months. My last exposure. I have tested for HIV four times at 13, 14 and two tests 15 months post possible exposure. I used the Biosure Home Hiv rapid self testing kits. (ones where it gives you a result in 15 minutes at home) it is fingerprick and they are approved here in the UK. I am terrified that I am going to come out positive form my bloods today at clinic, even though my other tests were negative.
Some help and advice please.
Thanks.

This is Dr. David

your prior tests were all HIV negative.

at 15 months, you would have developed antibodies already

it sounds like your are letting your anxiety get out of control with worry here.

you don't have to worry about having HIV.

I bet money your HIV tests will continue to be negative.

you don't need any further testing. why are you getting more HIV testing?

Hello,

Can I trust my Biosure results? I went to clinic for closure I guess and to make sure nothing is going to delay seroconversion. Have you ever seen someone tests negative and then positive?

Thank you.

Expert:  Dr. David replied 1 year ago.
yes, you can trust the Biosure results.

no, you will not be positive after 15 months of negative HIV testing
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

I have only done four tests, all of them Biosure.

Would you say there is any reason to worry?

Thanks.

Expert:  Dr. David replied 1 year ago.
no, there is no reason to worry.

I bet your test will be HIV negative
