Thanks for the forum, it is extremely helpful.
I need some advice please.
Quick desc of situation;
Condom broke with female CSW in New York City. Probably 10 minutes unprotected. I am healthy 30yo male.
3.5 weeks later went to doc with sore throat, white puss on tonsils, he said "viral infection". I crapped my pants. No fever, rash, nausea, etc etc.
37 days Negative Home Access Test
41 days Negative Home Access Test
45 days, have what looks like georgraphic tongue.
1. Do healthier immune systems produce antibodies quicker on average?
2. If viral infection at 25 days was HIV, would 41 day test be positive?
3. In your experienced opinion, what are my odds here of having HIV and testing neg at 41 days?
Before even reading your question, based on the title you selected for this thread: A negative HIV test 6 weeks after exposure (and yes, that includes a test done 1 day before 6 weeks) is proof you did not acquire HIV. Whatever other information you provide in your question is unlikely to change this judgment.
Now I will read your question. Guess what? No concern about HIV. There are hundreds of viruses that could cause the symptoms you describe, not just HIV. To the direct questions:
1) There is no difference in HIV seroconversion time in people with 'strong' versus 'weak' immune systems.
2) 25 days is too late for onset of ARS; generally symptoms start at 7-14 days. Your symptoms probably had nothing whatsoever to do with the sexual expsoure you describe. And yes, if you had HIV symptoms at 25 days a 41 day test would have been positive.
