False negative worry
I had unprotected sex with a guy (I’m female) about 8 years ago. I didn’t have have any illness or symptoms of HIV after the incident and I’ve been really healthy these last 8 years, apart from the odd cold.
My worry is that I took 2 biosure tests in September, both came out negative with the control line showing (only one line showing on both) at 15 minutes. My first worry is that one of the tests, the control line was ever so slightly lower down on the tube than in the picture where the result guide is, this line was still high up in the tube though and there were no other lines there.
My second worry is that I disposed of my results after 15 mins but I’ve read that the result can change after the 15 minutes, I’m concerned that both tests may have developed into positives without me knowing!
Another concern is that the test line could have been so faint that I couldn’t see it!
I’m also concerned that both of my tests are false negatives because I could be one of those people who don’t produce antibodies to HIV, how likely is that to happen? Also, because I did 2 tests, could this mean they are from the same batch and the batch could be faulty/ give off false results?
I’m really sorry for all the questions but I’m so worried that both of my tests were false negatives, I just cannot accept it! It’s also worth mentioning I suffer with health anxiety and OCD and often think there is something wrong with me, but I can’t help thinking what if my results are false and then I could just drop dead at any moment!
