Hello and hope you are doing well.

As I gather you have had an unprotected intercourse 2 years back. I assume you did not have a specific HIV testing done two years back. To clear doubts you can have yourself tested. The blood is first tested by ELISA test which is a screening test which looks for antibodies in the blood. Then if it is positive then Western blot test is done to look for specific proteins of HIV. If the tests are positive then HIV is present. The lymph node swelling may not be related. Please discuss this with your doctor am sure he will provide further assistance.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
