Am I HIV infected?
Hello, I need help and advise. I had protected sex and the condom did not break on the 29th of November 2012 with an HIV positive person who is swallowing ARVs already. Its too stupid of me because I knew her status prior but still went ahead and did it, I really regret it and feel so guilty because I have a girl friend whom I think i am putting at risk. I have been having general body pain, fatigue, joint pain, a lot of headache and I had diarhea this morning, I also had small itchy spots on my knee two weeks ago so am not sure if thats a rush. Generally I have been feeling like I have ARS and am so scared. So  on 26th of December 2012, I went for a test using a  starter pack strip and was negative but I did not believe the result because it was only three weeks and did not trust strips because they take long to detect antibodies. So on 31st December 2012 which was after four weeks since my risky encounter, I went and did an Elisa test (Method: Cobas e 411 HIV-1/HIV-2 Ag/Ab Combi) which as well came out negative. But I dont still believe the result, I dont know what to do with my anxiety because a counsellor told me I should not be afraid at all because he beleives am negative because the sex was protected and the seeming ARS I have are just out of anxiety but I cnt seem to convince my mind. Please advise me on my risk and what to do otherwise before HIV kills me, stress might kill me.
