Not sure about what I have been told..anxiety ridden and needing help!
After a difficult and symptomatic three months (fever and chills, white fuzz on my toungue, floaters, rash, sholder pain) after engaging in an unprotected sexual act,with someone now rummoured to be on anti retrovirals - I tested negative through the 20 min blood drop test that was administered at a clinic.I am worried that the nurse said I need to continue to test for at least a year because of the nature of the HIV subtype C ,which can remain undetected for even up to years....My anxiety is at an all time high and I battling with my thoughts...could this be true?
