I have possible HIV exposure on 19 February, having unprotected anal sex with someone who have unknown health status .. In this 3 months I'm getting ARS like symptoms.. fever,headache,swollen lymph glands, rash, etc
I got tested for HIV in the 4th week after possible exposure and it came negative.
the same is happen with my 11th week (75-76 days) after exposure rapid test and it came negative.. (honestly I'm shocked, I thought I was positive)
I know that HIV test is conclusive after 12th week.. I'm just asking is there any chance my test results will change in a week? Have u heard that the result change in one or two week? I'm planning to get tested again two weeks from now to get more conclusive result.
The 11th week negative result makes me less anxious and the symptoms are gone.. is this because my less-anxiety or I'm on the dormant stage of HIV infection and will be tested positive after this? Please somebody help me.. Thanks
thanks for Ur answer Lizzie.. i got tested in Indonesia, will it matter? on my 11th test, they take my blood with needles and within one/two hours later i accept the result.. I have doubt with the method. I think they use some older test kit and need more times to detect hiv antibody and cant detect hiv antibody at that time..
