Last 5th Dec, I had a mild exposure with a friend with benefits. I inserted my unprotected penis into her vagina for like 5secs before I decided not to proceed. I do not know her hiv status.
Since then, I have a itchy rash on my chest that happen on late Jan, and then in Feb I got dry mouth, eyes and skin. For like 2 days I got pins and needles and numbness on my feet and hands. Fatigue and shortness of breath also took place and some muscle aches and pain as well. I did lose alot of sleep and appetite this past few weeks due to this stress and hence also some weight as a result.
Hence, on 20th Feb, which is 11 weeks (77days) from the date of exposure, I took a Alere 4th Gen Ag/Ab Combo, test for syphllis, gonorhea, hep b and hep c and Chlamydia. All turn out negative. All was sweet for awhile and I manage to tell myself to move on.
But 2 days later today, I still feel my body isn't quite right as on I can still feel some aches here and there and the dry mouth hasn't gone yet. And the fears and stress start piling up again.
I am just afraid it could be a false negative for whatever reason and also maybe I could be a late seroconverter. And also, the fear that it could be hiv2 which is harder to detect than hiv1. And I do know the combo test isn't as helpful as detecting p24 in hiv2 strain. I am now truly stuck from moving on with my life.
Is a negative Alere 4th Gen Ag/Ab Combo at 11 weeks a conclusive or do I have to wait out another 3 months to test again?
Please advice sir, I truly have no one to turn to...
