My boyfriend tested hiv positve after we had been together for about 2 weeks, we had been having unprotected sexual intercouse I took my test same time as he did, mine was negative, then I testes again at 4 weeks & half weeks after exposure it still came back negative, at about 5 to 6 weeks after exposure my left ear was sour & had a sour throat lasted a week. been having nightmares that if I go back it will came back positive now, its now 6 months since the exposure I havent had any other symptomps other than a turning stomach it just makes load noise for the pass two days, its not sour & its not diarrhoe..
at 4 weeks after and half weeks after exposure how accurate was my hiv test?
well its been now 6 mos. why dont you test. if it comes out negative, you are definitively and conclusively negative, 3 mos is cdc standards for hiv testing.
your 4 wks is encouraging, but you really need to test, as you were exposed to hiv.
like mike said, you will not automatically aquire the disease, but its a high risk. my prayers are with you.
Sorry to hear about that, did he get a western blot to confirm? I got freaked out yesterday for a stupid blood clod inside my cheek after i bit it while eating and ran into my campus hiv department and got checked out. I asked the hiv specialist there and he told me that he never saw anyone not having ARS since he has been there for 7 yrs, and most case of ARS (the majority) need some type of medical attention, especially fever! and most reported to him after 10-14 days of exposure, which reassures me a bit. He also said that ARS will not likely to occur without fever, fever is always present and he never saw ARS after 4 weeks, not impossible but not to his experience. He could not answer to me why some people dont get ARS but its a minority, and he beleives that most people who experience ARS do not know that it is primary infection and assume that it is just a flu and misdiagnose. He said that most of his patient never heard of ARS either so he believes that people needs to get educate on that, but also symptoms could be others than hiv. anyways if you did not get a flu like symptoms or fever above 100, then the chance that you are negative is quite high, hope this help, get tested at the 3 month mark, I wish you the best.
