Will 4 negative oraquick tests be conclusive after 3 months?
Jump to this post
Hello @jlor, the four negative tests are certainly encouraging. I did some research on Oraquick and home testing kits and would like to re-share some of the information I found,
"This is from the Oraquick website, "Oral fluid HIV tests are very accurate. In studies, the OraQuick In-Home HIV Test detected 91.7 percent of people who were infected with HIV, and 99.9 percent of people who were not infected with HIV."
I cannot speak to the authenticity of Oraquick's claims however. If you still have concerns, I recommend getting blood work done and speaking with your medical provider. Here is also an article from the National Institute of Health on home HIV testing accuracy, https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4799243/."
If you have concerns beyond the oraquick tests, I highly recommend getting a full test done with your medical provider or at an approved HIV testing center. You can find centers near you using this resource, https://locator.hiv.gov/.
