HIV test after 7 weeks

Hello! I'm freaked out cause I had unprotected sex (I know my bad, and I will never do again).

I took test 7 weeks later and it was negative(not this quick test) How sure it could be because all I read is before 3 months you can't trust results...

I can't think about anything else...

Please read that. You can consider your self hiv negative. 3rd gen test can already be considered conclusive 6 weeks beyond. If it was a combo test or 4th gen 28 days beyond is conclusive. The link I gave to you was written by a hiv expert who aslo administers hiv testing and was a former contributor to the expert forum here. You may test at 3 months for peace of mind but expect it to be negative.

Thank you a lot. But what makes me worry is one lymph on my neck. Last weeks it has been bigger than usually... but I tought the virus would be so strong then that the 7 weeks blood test would show it...?!

It didn't show up because, in all reality, you don't have HIV.   Take the test again at 3 months and expect a negative.
