Is 6 weeks enough to move on

Hi I had protected vaginal sex with a CSW in Thailand...the condom broke and I pulled out immediately...anyway 2 weeks later I came down with sore throat,fever,fatigue,swollen lymph’s...apart from fever these symptoms have persisted for 5 weeks now...at the 6 week post exposure I took a hiv duo test which came back negative...from what I’ve read a 6 week duo is extremely unlikely to change...have I had a text book seroconversion or is it coincidence?

A duo test is conclusive after 4 weeks, so you are safe to move on and enjoy life. Late seroconversion is an old myth, long ago disproven - so no one has that.

Thanks for reply...I’m of the thinking that if my symptoms that started at 2 weeks were due to hiv, surely antibodies would be present 4 weeks later
HIV doctors don' pay attention to symptoms so no one here does either. It is not a diagnostic and there is no useful diagnostic for hiv on the internet.
doctors don't pay
