oraquick home test

Mar 31, 2013

It's been almost 2 years since I had a potential exposure...strayed from my wife like a dumbass. I recently found out my wife is pregnant, so I decided to buy the oraquick home job test. I swabbed my gums and the test came back negative. So have the 5 more I took to be sure. Can I trust this result?

I'm reading a lot about how it can provide a false negative and I'm having symptoms- sore throat, constant pain in muscles, and lasting diarrhea. No fever though.

Can I believe the 6 oraquick tests and breathe?

Response from Mr. Cordova
