negative antibody test at 5 weeks - now 9 weeks on
I've been posting over the last 9.5 weeks following when I thought I was exposed and have had some veryy suppotive replies (my risk was 1-2 minutes unprotected vaginal sex in a stripclub in Spain).
I took a rapid anti-body test at 35 days which was negative and went to a follow up appointment with a HV consultant in the UK who basically said I was ok to go on and that a test at 12 weeks was only needed if i couldn't get on and that it would confirm the 5 week test result. Other STD tests (chlamydia, gonhorrea and syphillis (syphilis) came back negative). The only other 'symptoms' I've had are a few mouth ulcers which the consultant said had little or nothing to do with HIV.
However, last Thursday night (exactly 9 weeks) I woke up at midnight with a vice-like headache which lasted 24 hours, Friday night had 2 bouts of diahorrea and similar last night with lots of wind (flatulence) - I'm not sure where this has come from or what to make of it and am even more worried now about taking another test.
I was at a reception last Sunday and did here a lot of people fell ill with a mixture of diahorrea and vomiting. I'm praying that mine is the same as their's and not ARS (would these occur at 9 weeks)? Could someone offer some advice?
