Haven't been tested yet. Can I ignore it for 6 months?
      06/24/13 06:16 PM

I'm in a fucked up situation. I'll be completing 3 months since my possible exposure, this week, on wednesday (also, my birthday). The thing is that I'm going to the USA on the very same day (I'm from Brazil) and not coming back until december! So, here's my dilemma: I was going to take the test tomorrow, but they take around ten days to give me results, so I'll be in the US already. If I'm negative, wonderful, but what if I'm positive? I won't be able to go to a doctor and take meds abroad, it's too expensive for someone without an american health insurance. Being positive and not being able to do anything about it would be really disturbing. Coming back earlier is not an option, I don't know what I would say to my family. So, do you think that ignoring it for a while and waiting to come back to get tested would be okay?
