    I'm going to sound like a hypochondriac I know!!! The only unprotected sex I've ever had was twice with men I was with for over a year. In addition I have done unprotected oral sex but it was always with people I knew.... I really have no idea why I'm so freaked out though!!! I did TWO oraquick tests and they BOTH CAME OUT NEGATIVE. I'm still waiting on my blood results (yes essentially I took 3 tests) and I'm freaked out that the oraquick saliva tests were flukes and the blood test will come out positive. The only symptom I can really say I have is random sharp pains in my neck.. But not often at all so that could be from anything. Can someone just tell me I'm crazy and need to calm down? I think I'm bugging out bc I'm 23 and its the first time I've ever done a full STD/HIV blood test...

    We always say testing beats out symptom checking EVERY time. Neck pains are not a symptom of HIV anyway. Oral tests are quite accurate. You're HIV negative and, of course, the blood test will certainly confirm what the other two tests have already shown.
