I think you have to wait longer to take the test. Will not show up that quickly.

YOU CAN ONLY BE CONFIDENT IF YOU HAVE SEX WITH SOMEONE YOU KNOW. ANY SEX WORKER IS SUBJECT TO EXPOSURE TO MANY DISEASES. UNPROTECTED SEX WITH ANYONE IS RISKEY SO FIND A GIRLFRIEND OR WIFE WHO YOU KNOW BETTER AND STAY SAFE.
