I was tested for HIV at 3 months and one week after a possibly HIV exposure and the rapid antibody test was negative. Now one week later (14 weeks since exposure) I have developed a terrible sore throat and it looks like I may have the flu and or a cold. My question is can this be the seroconversion stage? Is it possible that my 13 week negative result change at 14 weeks?
First of all thank you for answering my question.Ok but then why do people and some sites say that it can take up to 6 months to develop hiv antibody? How accurate is my three month post exposure test result?
