What's the deal with that test, its supposed to give you a positive or negative after 28 days of any kind of sexual contact, reliable test?

I know esmerelda is going to call me a retarded hypocondriac so I was wondering has any actual info on that test

Oh PLEASE, PLEASE go take one. They are not recommended for diagonisis of HIV because of the high rate of FALSE POSITIVES, not false negative. For those of us with HIV we call it a blip. For you worried wells that insist on taking tests that are not recommended for diagnoisis, well some call it a nightmare.

I'm gonna love watching this! LOL
