Has anyone taken a rapid test before!!???
      #205345 - 08/29/06 11:12 AM

Hi, I am taking my first rapid HIV test tomorrow. I am a nervous wreck. I know it is better to only have to wait 20 min for your results, instead of 2 weeks, but I am terrified. The two encounters I am scared of, is 2 years ago I had slow, yet unprotected anal sex with a man who's status I do not know. Then, Almost a year ago, I had unprotected oral sex with a man who's status I do not know. I got a sore throat the day after it happened. However, I know that ARS takes 2 weeks to show up. I have been cleared of all other STDS and my pap is normal. If anyone has any experiences, I really could use the support and stories. thank you

I have taken the OraQuick mouth swab rapid test and it is nothing to worry about. Waiting for the result can be a bit nervewracking though but you'll be fine..
