How good is OraQuick testing?
      #174987 - 02/14/06 10:26 AM

I just found out that the local Aids project has this too:

Friday 5:00 pm - 10:00 pm - OraQuick - Results in 20 minutes, walk-in, no appointment needed.

Is it as good as OraSure(saliva ) and Blood test or am I better of doing the Blood to be damn sure?
Any help will be appreciated. I am at 13 week mark and wanted to know if I can just go friday get tested, get my results in 20 mins and get rid of this anxiety for good

The rapid blood test is reliable. I just had my 81-day using rapid blood test tonight. Came back -ve. Couldn't stand the anxiety. Had to do it.

I was told that the oraquick blood test was slightly more accurate than the oral version of it. I would just let them prick your finger and do the blood version.

Andy: I don't know nothing about the OraQuick, but I'd rather you to go and get the blood test done, I think it would be better and that way you will find the relief and assurance that you are looking for.

andy the oraquik blood test which is the 20 min rapid test is extremely accurate, the oral version has had some problems. its not available everywhere so if its there grab it ,its better than waiting 2 weeks, and its almost 100 percent when it comes back negative at 13 weeks. love and peace
