Hello, I find out my HIV test results this morning. I am negative! I know how you are feeling, because I was in the same agony for last seven days. It could be quicker if I used a HIV test which has the results after one day, but I heard from a friend that this one is more reliable. When I walked into the room to take my results, I thought I was going to faint. The doctors told me to sit, and gave me a glass of water. They told me how this test works. It is necessary to past six months minimum after infecting to do this test, because for this time our body makes antibodies to fight HIV. This test looks for those antibodies, and if it finds them that means the results are positive. I hope your test will have the same results as mine did.
yeh , same boat. You end up reading so much info that you convince yourself you are HIV. I got a rash on the inside of my arm. I looked to see if it was a sign of HIV and hey would you beleive it? yes. The more you read the more you realise anything can occur within reason. I just want to know! Thought about the home testing but not sure what I would do at home on my own if it was positive. Going on Monday for test. Life drags at mo' and can't think of anything else.
Hello, i had unprotected sex with a young white female, (22) I have already taken one test and it was nerve recking. I just found out that it take six months to know for sure. I took the test after 11 weeks, test came back negative, I thought I was out of the woods, I still have not gotten any systoms, I just took another today, its been 15 weeks, im really scared.
I'm waiting for my results, just had all my blood work down on Monday. I was told if I don't get a phone call from them, I'm all set and they will mail the results. Funny thing is I was driving home and I got a call from a Number that I thought was the hospital. I nearly sh*t my pants thinking o god I'm positive but it was my student loan company calling...I've never been so happy to talk with them. So today was day 2 and no call, but I'm doing ok. Just my mind wanders and thinks about what if....but I'm glad I'm being tested, done with worryign about sh*t. Anyone else out there waiting...I will keep you posted.

Until today I was waiting for my HIV results and after reading the WeB I began to act paranoid. I had so much anxiety, couldn't sleep, eat and didn't want to be around anyone. I became depressed, because after all, I've had unprotected sex with a hand full of X's. starting thinking about my current boyfriend and how it will affect his life and our relationship. How my life would change, the worst 5 days of my life. I called the doctors office every single day, to the point that the secretaris knew who I was. The sad part is, I didn't even have any symptoms but the WEB made it worst for me, when i read on the WEB that sometimes you don't show symptoms. I'm 24 years old , I've made mistakes, been absolutely careless with not using protection, and after going through this, I've had a wake up call to be responsible and enjoy life and stop being so negative. I don't even look at my boyfriend the same way. I appreciate him so much , and do not want to be with anyone But him. However, if we ever break up, the next person I am with, will have to do a full STD/HIV test. By the way, the reason why I was upset also was because prior to this test, I was going to my doctor and getting blood taken out and I thought they were checking for HIV but they weren't. They were checking for cholesterol and normal stuff. So all along I was thinking I was getting tested for that but I wasn't. You actually have to ask for an HiV test, what a shame.
