For one, symptoms don't matter when guaging an HIV risk...they are too inconsistent.

TRUE ARS symptoms are hard to miss...it presents as pretty nasty flu-like symptoms and is almost always accompanied by a fever, usually 101 or higher.  Real ARS symptoms usually leave a person in bed ill for several days.

Again, one cannot ever go by symptoms or lack thereof when it comes to judging a risk.  Some newly infected people never have one symptom, and many people who THINK they were infected and had symptoms are negative.

No, a fever related to true ARS is a high fever, lasting several days to a week or so.  It would almost always be over 101.

If you had an exposure you will still have to take an antibody test 3 months post exposure.
