Hello I have a question about testing, I had a risky exposure unprotected sex with a girl about 9 months ago. I purchased the Oraquick In home oral swab and tested myself 2 times after 8 months past the risky exposure. I followed the directions on the kit and tested 3 months after exposure, didn't eat, drink, smoke, etc... 30 minutes ( i even waited 2 hours without putting anything in my mouth) before test, swabbed upper gum once, swabbed lower gum once, placed the stick in the tube. I waited 20 minutes and then read the result, I had one line next to the "C", NO line next to the "T". Non-reactive (Negative)

My question is: A) is my result is conclusive? medically, Do I need to validate the results with a blood test? C) Can I put this incident behind me and move on?

Thanks so much for the advice.

Yes, your result is conclusive. No, you do not need further testing with a blood sample. You followed the directions for the Oraquick test accurately. You can put the incident behind you and move on.
