HIV Transmission and Education >> Am I Infected?


Just took the test & shaking!
      03/25/03 09:43 PM


I just took my first HIV test ever. I have had unprotected sex several times but I have had no sex for the past 4months.

I wanted to make sure I waited the correct amount of time so that I can start my new sex life, free of HIV thoughts and fears.

My doctor sent me to Quest Labs to get the blood drawn and he told me to call him at the end of next week for the results.

I was only tested for HIV1. Should have been tested for HIV2 also? Did I make a mistake by not asking for both tests or will the HIV1 test also pick up HIV2?

I have no idea what generation of tests Quest Labs uses - should I go back and get a HIV2 test or just forget about HIV2?

I am scared enough as it is - another fear I dont need.
Exactly what is HIV2 and how would I get it? I also tested for all other std's.

Thanks for your help and I will write back when I get my test results.
