Hi, at 5 months past exposure I have tested negative for HIV antibodies through a rapid oral swab test. I have tested negative also at 6 weeks, 3 months, and 4 months too. I have not felt 100% back to normal though after getting flu-like symptoms within a month after exposure, and the clinic's paper I received my results on at 5 months stated that results aren't conclusive until SIX months.
1. Do I need to retest??
2. I haven't been sexually active since 5 months ago, but I just started dating someone I really care about. Can I begin a sexual relationship without worrying of passing on HIV? (I've also been tested for every STD under the sun these past 5 months and all negative)
