I had an exposure about a year ago. I'm a gay male who received unprotected penetrative sex. a few weeks or so after i came down with flu like symptoms and my lymph nodes swelled up. some are still present behind my ear and in groin. 3 months after the exposure i bought a hiv test that are currently advertised on tv. the home test came back positive. I was a nervous reck and it took me 3 months to get the courage to see a doctor. i asked for a hiv test but didnt tell him i had a postive result earlier. the test said negative for hiv antibodies. do i have hiv? what should i do from here. i still have swollen lymph nodes. i havent had any sex since.
well i didnt think youd believe i was given tests to take with me from the clinic and you didnt. but nonetheless it happened. my question is do i get tested any further and that is why i came on here to find out.
