8 week test unlikely to change but test now and you will have a conclusive result. Symptoms are not HIV related.

I too believe I had an exposure in sep it was limited to foreplay and oral sex with condom, she went the extra mile and licked my scrotum, my thighs and stomach. I had fever within 3 days felt really scared health has never been the same again. I took a test for infectious virology (HbsAg, HIV & HCV) from KIMS, Kerala after 98 days from exposure it came back negative they use 4th generation testing at KIMS with Eclia Roche Cobas. My ID specialist and 2 Internal Medicine Specialists told me that the test was conclusive.....I am having trouble accepting the results as I dont feel the same anymore....maybe  stress is doing it....this forum is a mighty help...specially Teak...he authoritatively states that I was not at risk at all....follow their advice and get tested as you are now past 12 weeks....and put u r mind at rest...I now trying to keep away as much as I can from my research over the net...pls do so after your 12th week test...God be with u brother.

If you took a test at 8 weeks its not likely to change.

Shibu are u based out of Middle East now? Where do u hail from in Kerala? We have good doctors here..my suggestion is to see a doctor mainly an Infectious Diseases specialist or someone from Internal Medicine. Tell them your medical issues and get the right guidance...Medhelp is a wonderful forum they even advice to consult a Doctor. My problem was just going and asking for a Hiv test..I should have seen a doctor and got pre counseling.  However I saw a doctor and got post test councelling..my ID specialist put my mind at ease to a great extent he said I am safe after a complete blood check. ..I have become overtly sensitive looking for symptoms now I jump at everything...despite having a 14 weeks negative combo test. ..I think u r in a similar situation. ..a doctors words could certainly bring more clarity and I am now following my doctors advice to break the thought of Hiv and not look for symptoms....god bless you brother

value does not signify anything...if its greater than 1 you're believed to be infected..but other than that it means NOTHING..MOST HIV tests just report reactive or non-reactive these days without mentioning the index value!!!
get tested now and get back to life! and no a neg 8 week turning positive is rare esp with the sensitive modern day tests!

the time that you are spending on this forum should be spent getting yourself to a lab and getting your conclusive test result.

You barely had a risk and your tests are showing that you weren't infected. Expect another negative.

you dont have hiv...further testing is not needed.

if you are having health concerns, work with your dr...it's NOT hiv related.
