went to a small local lab to get test for hiv just to be sure
who is owned by 1 person
he is alone in the lab doing all the tests
now im soo worry because i think that person used a
used needle on me

the needle was in 2 Pieces

1-the tube where the bloog is going
2-and the needle

after he finished my blood draw he took only the tube to test it without the needle

the tube was packaged and new im sure
but the needle was on the table and i cant remember if it was packaged or not
im afraid that its used and has some hiv blood inside it


that was 8 to 9 months and im afraid to go to test for hiv im crying everyday


also 2 or 3 weeks after that accident i got some symptoms exactly as hiv early symptoms i read
on the internet

do i need hiv test
am i at risk for hiv

HIV screening tests are designed to be used just once.

It is silly to be crying over this everyday when a simple 20 minute test will confirm that a dirty needle was not used in this test.

Go get tested to put this fear behind you.
