Common Questions and Answers about Hiv testing kit cvs


Avatar n tn If you said yourself that i cant hiv from the two incidents i described then why would you challenge me to get a test.
Avatar n tn Hi, Does anyone know if you can buy home testing kits for HIV where you get the results in your home. If you can, any ideas where i can buy one from.
Avatar f tn If you believe you have been exposed to HIV and want help to judge your risk, would like advice about HIV testing, or have questions about the effectiveness of condoms or risks associated with specific sexual practices, this is the site for you.
Avatar n tn thanks for the replies everybody. So if I go to a clinic I could get the results right away? Waiting would just kill me.
Avatar m tn You shared concerns that while you went and purchased the OraQuick test kit, he may or may not have eaten or drunk anything. The instructions in the kit MUST be followed to the letter or the results can be affected. If there are trust issues, I repeat, don't wait for HIM.........take care of yourself! Go to a reliable clinic and have the 4th generation DUO test. The OraQuick test is "accurate" at 3 weeks post exposure and is unlikely to change, but it is not conclusive.........
Avatar n tn I am so worried about having HIV all from the blood draw and I can't stop thinking about it. I've thought about getting that testing kit from cvs but I'm too scared. My husband is beyond over me and thinks I'm being so ridiculous. I feel like I'm on my own with this.
Avatar m tn // or is it something different?
Avatar m tn My hands are trembling so much Im in tears as I am afraid that I have contracted hiv and/or herpes or other stds. For the past 2 days, I have also had watery diarrhea. I bought an oraquick testing kit from cvs 2 days ago and did an oral swab test which tested negative. How accurate is oraquick? Is it possible that I got HIV? This is probably one of my main concerns. The bump in my inner lip has gotten smaller and I can barely feel it.
Avatar m tn it is most often seen in people with HIV or in HIV negative but immunosuppressed or those with low T helper cells. Also, those with leukemia and lymphoma. HIV negative normal individuals in Japan can also get this. Have you been tested for HIV? If HIV negative have you had a complete blood count? If so you would see very high red blood cells too. The diagnosis can be supported by the finding of eosinophilia but a skin biopsy is necessary to establish it.
Avatar m tn what about hcv in the brain and spinal fluid? like HIV this is a virus and it replicates and is latent in ways healthcare does not to date understand. To state any person with "chronic" HCV can EVER completelyt clear this VIRUS is a falicy. WE are not there yet, not by a long shot. you post some correct and interesting information, but your not being as realistic as the facts and "research" shows.
Avatar n tn Poor you! My son is anaphylactic (eggs, milk & every nut on the planet) and he has regular blood tests and skin ***** tests to assess his current level of reaction to his known allergens and assess possible further allergy to new substances. The new substances are introduced one at a time and include allergens known to be linked to his existing ones (like sesame seeds, lupin flour, latex etc).
Avatar n tn I tried eating yogurt/kefir more regularly to no avail. I did the OTC pH testing and was in the normal range, and didn't know what else to do. This month, of course, it came back again. After finding the name "cytolitic vaginosis" here, I did some more searching and found this article from an online nursing journal:
Avatar m tn Scientific studies that have been done show that zinc lozenges do not work, but not enough testing has been done to see if they work at higher doses. Definitely don’t use a zinc spray, because some people claim it has caused anosmia, which is the loss of the sense of smell. I always believed, instinctively, that echinacea was a fad cure for a cold, and a study sponsored by the government’s National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine lends support to that view.
Avatar n tn I was also continuing to get terrible sinus infections---at leat 8-10 (no joke) and treated with every antibiotic under the sun. I also went through allergy testing etc....but it didn't address any of my issues. I wanted a sinus culture but was told it wasn't necessary....Unfortunately my big mouth failed me at that time. I then went to a more progressive ENT in 2005 who did an ethmoidectomy (removed the sinuses from between my eyes)and I really thought my problems were over.
Avatar n tn 3 or 4 other doctors agree that I'm too young for a colonoscopy (which I agree). But do you all think I should get an endoscopy? I just got a kit for stool samples today. I've also have a lot of cbc's done. In december, my white cell count was SLIGHTLY elevated. All the doctor's say that's nothing. My thyroid and celiac levels were also tested. My celiac levels were slightly elevated. But I'm wondering about these worms things in my stool. That is just weird and creepy.
Avatar n tn if had a clumpy white discharge and a random itch. it doesnt itch all the time maybe once or twice a day, i took the Vagasil screening kit test and it said i may or may not have a yeast infection. so ive started the useing the 3 day medicine that u insert into your vagina and a cream for the itching.
Avatar n tn Why don't you guys just go to the family planning clinic and take a preggers test there, or get a home testing kit? If you have all the symptoms described then YES, it IS possible that you're pregnant. But best thing to do is take a pregnancy test to make sure.
1294995 tn?1330666336 Good luck with more testing this week. Keep us posted :) I'm feeling good -- 3rd round without any symptoms... just feel steady (like last time). I have so much hope for this cycle. I really feel like I've been inching my way along to the destination. I can't see it yet, but it feels like it's right around the bend in the road. SSBD to all! -`*`- (that's my little sparkler firework!
Avatar n tn I will keep you guys posted, I am going back to the GYN for another round of testing. I too have changed body washes etc, to no avail. I am going try the baby wipe thing for sure. Thanks for being open about this girls! I was afraid to say anything until my beautiful sisters showed me it was safe.
Avatar n tn There are still bodily fluids that come out when your husband ejaculates, so it could very well be that your vaginas pH is getting messed up from that. You can get a vagisal screening kit that can tell you what may be wrong, I would try that OR just call your gyno and get an appointment.
Avatar n tn The doc was testing me for the flu, in which I knew I didn't have! And then, he calls to tell me he's prescribing an antibiotic because he thinks I have a virus... I refused the antibiotic, searched for a new doctor for future reference and laughed at them.. they thought my selenium poisoning was insane, and they were prescribing a freakin zpac for a VIRUS??? DOCTORS need to back off the computer and start thinking with what they know!
Avatar n tn I was also afraid because Candia is a known condition brought on by HIV.. so I am getting tested for that too.. My friend is also having a major problem with Candida yeast in his body.. and he's told me to watch my diet and stop eating sugars and foods with Yeasts like bread. These are the foods that the Candida live on.. Oh well, I hope this information helps everyone.. Maybe we'll actually find something that gets rid of this soon...
Avatar n tn What I found is that I'm probably allergic to glycerin, an ingredient in many personal lubricants and soaps. My husband and I have been testing lubricants that are glycerin and paraben free to see if the cuts return. So far everything is normal, like my old self is back again. I haven't had any redness and raw feeling after intercourse either. My advice is to read labels and stay away from glycerin! I hope that this information will help someone else.

1647691 tn?1363727302 I told her that the internet disagrees as they dont have a controlling body for testing. She didn't like me much. I love the world wide web hehe haven't touched the green teas. Have to say don't like them. Feeling sick about tomorrows appointment. The sleepless nights still continue after that 2ww.
Avatar n tn I honestly don't understand why your doctors' gave you some sort of acid to put on your vagina without even testing to see if it was really warts. Sometimes I really don't know what doctors are thinking. It doesn't have anything to do with yeast infections or bacterial vaginosis. I know that for sure becuase when I went to the gyn the first time with this problem she tested me on the spot for both. She took a swab and went into the other room and looked under a microscope. It was neither.
