Only a test at 3 months will tell you if you have HIV. Symptoms are not HIV related.

My headache is gone at week 4 but my sorethroat still hurt and recover on week 5 which is 2 weeks period. Addition to this I started to cough at week 5. Is this ARS sysptoms?? I don't have fever, diarrhea or any other symptoms but I do weight loss about 3 kg. Please help me because I'm at a remote place where medical fasilities is low and I cannot have hiv test done here. So I can only rely on sysptoms analysis. Thanks

I got the chance at last and I got my hiv test done on the 7 week and the result is negative. At this time, I still have my cough. Is the result conclusive? I know I still had to do hiv test at 12 week to be sure but I'm just too scared and anxious to know about my health. Will the result change at the. 12 week??

Your result is unlikely to change.  We recommend a test at 3 months is conclusive.
