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.
