tazzzzzzz5 saidThis is will be my first time getting tested for HIV...and I'm very stressed as I have a sore throat. Is one place better than the other? If I have the insurance should I go to my primary care doctor or will the test be the same at any testing center? Thanks for your help!
First, good for you for being tested. Don't be nervous... regardless of the results you at least know, and you can then take steps protect yourself and your partners.
It doesnt really matter if go to a clinic instead of your PCP. Rapid test results/swabs are often just as good as full on blood draws from your PCP. (of course the blood draw is the more reliable of the two).
