I wanted to know if being overly obese(fat) will affect a HIV test???
Would I need to wait longer than the 3 months after a risk??
Pls Answer. Thank oyu.

Put the spoon down and step away from the hot fudge sundae. Whether you resemble Mama Cass or Karen Carpenter, your HIV test will be accurate.
Good luck! And consider going from the testing center directly to Weight Watchers, rather than Krispy Kreme, to celebrate, OK?
