Didn't you read other posts on this forum? No matter how long it is, you will find antibodies after 4-6 weeks and after 3 months for sure. But after 20 years?? Dude, move on. If you had it, you would have been dead by now. You are fine, move on.
Why are you getting tested after 20 years?

I think those sound like normal symptoms of pregnancy.

You have posted in the wrong forum. You need to repost in the STD forum.
