Took advice and got retested
      12/30/12 04:28 PM

I started a post here about my experience of taking an oral HIV . One person suggested that I get retested......so I did. This time I got a finger prick test. It was negatives.....but I still have some concerns. The person swabbed my finger with a alcohol swab. He did not wipe dry....he let it air. dry. Then he pricked my finger and collected the sample. Now I am reading that you are supposed to wipe away the first drop of blood. I am really not understanding....why is it so hard for individuals to follow directions. From what I understand...you are supposed to do this because there is.a possibility of alcohol residue and excess fluid tissue that may dilute the blood sample. Now I have had two test and can't believe eithet of them????? They should make it a crime when the people administer these don't folloe the directions......especially when someone pays to have it done. Could some please explainn to me if the fact that he used the first drop of blood instead of the second cause a false negatives? Thank you
