Response from Ms. Southall

Hi Thanks for the question. From what you describe you are HIV negative. The standard for HIV testing whether oral swab or blood are very accurate at 28 days, and conclusive at 90 days.

To be sure that there are no other STI (Sexually Transmitted Infections) present you can get a complete profile testing done with your health care provider.

Hope this helps, Be well and stay safe, Shannon

Scared and Freaking out!!!!!!!!!!!
