Waiting For HIV Antibody Test Results Print
Waiting for test results can be a confusing and emotional experience. Common experiences among people who are waiting for test results include: feelings of fear, anger, rage, sadness, nervousness, as well as bouts of crying, mood swings, nausea, stomach pains, vomiting, and loss of interest in sex, fainting and forgetting to do things.
During this period, it is important to remember that these changes probably happen due to the anxiety caused by waiting for results. Remember that if you experience these changes, it does not mean that you are HIV positive or that you have AIDS.
We recommend that you talk about your experience with someone you can trust. Usually, talking about it helps people to feel better. Please contact our counselors and let us help you.
