    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    It is highly, highly doubtful you are HIV positive.


    Oraquick tests are designed to be fool proof when taken. One really can't mess them up. If you've taken two yesterday and the results were both negative, this third test result will be exactly the same.


    Stop freaking out then. You are HIV negative.

    You won't have signs or symptoms of HIV because you are HIV negative.

    Note to self; buy stock in HIV test kits!


    Honestly, you can test from now until the store runs out of kits but really, the results will be no different.


    Ironically you should be celebrating the good news you are HIV negative instead of spending yet more money on test kits.
