    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.

    I took a oraquick swab at 11 weeks after possible exposure, exposure was brief unprotected sex with a male (I am female) followed by protected sex. His status is unknown but he says he is negative. I am just scared. Is my negative 11 week a good indication?
    georgiagail responded:
    Technically 11 weeks is one week shy of the "recommended" 12 week (3 month) testing period but honestly, ones status would not change between 11 and 12 weeks.

    So yes, your 11 week test result is an excellent indication of your status.
