How accurate is the Oraquick at 6/7 Weeks
      #276809 - 06/23/14 07:55 PM

I just did an Oraquick at 6/7 Weeks past exposure and once again it is negative. How accurate is this test at 6/7 weeks? I was told it should test positive for the vast majority of people now, but I am still negative despite of all of my clear Hallmark symptoms of HIV ARS. I will test again at 8/9 weeks and 11/12 weeks to be sure.

As long as it is the one used at a hospital / health clinic / testing center, then It is extremely accurate (over 99%). The result is HIGHLY unlikely to chance at 3 months, so rest easy, the results are nearly guaranteed to be negative when you get tested again.

It is the home test, which according to Orasure is identical to ones used in Hospitals and Clinics.
