Why? So for the next 2 weeks you can come on here daily and say I got this symptom and that symptom and so on. Believe there is no risk. That is all the info you need to know.

if someone were experiencing ars symptoms, they would come at once...not one after another over a period of weeks.

Vicious?? I am being honest with you. I can't tell you how many times I see the above question and the person is back saying I got this or that symptom. Instead of just believing they had no risk.

No I don't know you but I read your situation.

Hi there - please don't take it personally.  Most people here won't give advice on symptoms for a variety of reasons.  First, HIV does not always produce symptoms - it is our stance that HIV can only be diagnosed by testing, and that symptoms, or lack thereof, mean nothing.  Second, while you sound as though you are likely to keep your word and accept that you had no risk, it is often the case that anxiety gets the best of people, and they have real or imagined symptoms that they believe to be HIV-related, even when they have had NO risk.  When members focus on symptoms, they often end up back here posting anxiety-driven questions, which aren't productive to anyone.

Thus, it is the goal of this forum to focus on assessing risk and advising members on whether they need to test, what test is conclusive, and the time period of testing.
