Depends on: the exact nature of oral-genital contact and whether. your partner had engaged in high risk behavior the past 3 months, as it takes that long for antibodies to be present for reliable test. It is reported that Quick test will report negative in error 8% of the time, but most of that is due to doing the procedure correctly and waiting the appropriate time.
