How accurate is hiv antibody test at weeks 6,10?

Hi every one, if you can answer my question pleases. About 8 weeks ago I kissed  women dip kissing and she said that she got gum infection. Since I have kissed her I never feel well I have lost about 10 kg and bout 6 weeks after the kissing I got flu, fever, chill, extremely itchy skins and I got swollen lymph nodes as well as sore throat. Also I have very dry moth nose and very dry skins on my arms which are itchy same time. My stomach always aching specially on left side and I got diarrhoea and very itchy auns with spots around whole and white spots around my lips. There are also dark brown spot on my hand and forehead and my chest they look like SK. Can you please tell me what this could be? I did test for HIV1&1, by using antibody test,  and hep A,B,C at  weeks 6 ,10, and 10,2.5  from my exposure to the risk, all the test were negative. This is really drive me crazy can you please answer my question, is this HIV or it could be glandular fever. I am aware of window period of hiv test but I am still 3 weeks away and this is killing me. Please  someone help me, thank you so much.

"Kissing is no risk, even deep ("French") kissing and even with a person who sores on their mouth or has gum or dental disease."   DR HOOK

"Of course no risk. HIV is not transmitted by kissing, even with sores in the mouth.

Despite the billions of kissing events in the AIDS era, not one case of HIV has been known to be transmitted that way, even though millions of those kisses undoubtedly were with cuts in the mouth or on the lips."

Whatever the cause of your discomforts are, it is certain that it's not HIV. You never had a risk. You didn't need to test. You don't require any further testing.

Thank you very  much LIZZE LOU, I forgot to mention that I socked her nipples but she is not pregnant or have baby.what you said is realy helping me but these symptoms I have make me really worries me and scar. I do nothing but than  look at myself and watch out for any new symptoms that is to do with HIV and do research see if is to do with HIV. My sore throat can’t go as well is my lymph nodes and today I looking at myself I saw whit milky dots on my lips, penis, and neck. I just cannot stop think of these symptom even for 5 minutes, all my skin has change like yellowish and dark all over my body. Also my feet got some kind of death skin is like yeast infection. I don’t know if anxiety could cause all these problems but they all come after fever I had. I did blood test for lost symptoms they all ok so far the only test I have not done yet is mono test for glandular fever but I will do it in 2 weeks’ time with 13 weeks for HIV and Hep a,b, and c. your comments really helping me thank you so much.

Hi - this forum is not able to act as a hand-holding service for anxiety.  You were advised that you didn't have a risk, and of course it is your choice to test or not test, but we can't really offer any more help in this forum - it is for HIV Prevention questions only.

Find a new doctor.  I surely hope he doesn't tell his patients that kissing is a risk (or nipple sucking).

You never had a risk...you do not need testing.

Kindly move along.

Well, if a woman went to her doctor with all the signs of pregnancy, but she never had sex, would it make sense to give her a pregnancy test?  It's the same concept...you had no risk...so therefore your "symptoms" have nothing to do with HIV!  An HIV test is a waste of time, money and resources, if you've not had a risk.

You do not have ARS. If you had it, you wouldn't be sitting in front of your computer telling us about your anxiety driven symptoms instead at the emergency room of the hospital. Every thing you tell us is classic anxiety symptoms. Please seek counselling and move on there is no point wasting your time crying about something you dont have, you never had a risk.

I am not sure if you are telling your doctor the truth about your incident or your doctor is simply a quack to suggest you PCR for a no risk scenario.
