Should I be scared for my HIV test?? HElp!!

Posted , 5 users are following.

Hello. I am an 18 year old Hetero Sexual Female. I have had  8 sexual partners in the past and my question to you all is should I be scared to take my HIV test? In the near future I will have to take one for some paper work I have to complete. I have never had unprotected sex. EVER. I have done oral sex without a condom, but I have never had any open wounds of any kind. I have also never done any injected drugs or have any tattoos. I came on this discussion to know if I shoould be scared? Is it normal for people to be a little scared? Again, I have never had sex without a condom before, but I have done oral sex. 

I guess I just need to calm my nerves somehow, or can someone tell me if I'm over reacting? Haha, thank you all so much in addvance!!!

    You've practiced safe sex so your risk will be ultra minimum from intercourse, so nothing to worry about on that front.

    I'll have to leave it others to put your mind at rest with regard oral as I don't know.

    I'm sure you have nothing to worry about as you've had safer sex and the risks from oral would be so small. If you are having the test for a job application or something like that why not go to the GU clinic and have a test just to put your mind at rest.

    Sounds like you have anxiety... I think everyone gets nervous.. That is normal. The chances of catching HIV are pretty slim w no protection, but almost no risk w protected sex.. Stop worrying.
