PLEASE HELPPP!

Ok you guys, I really need your help. I am highly concerned and worried like I should be. But my worries are making me sick. I had unprotected sex in a pool with a guy who claims to not have hiv but sounded hesitant to get a test. He said I'm being crazy and paranoid. But weird things have been happening to me and people around me. I've gotten tested for everything including hiv but at 8 weeks. I know that a three month test is suppose to be conclusive. But is an 8 week test pretty accurate? i got an hiv rapid test from a bit of blood drawn from my finger. it took about 20 minutes and they said it was negative. but im sooo worried because my current boyfriend just got a random fever out of nohwhere which included headaches and diarreah. i'm really scared and need everyones advice!!! please =(

OK your test out of 8month is very good but not conclusive and you would need to test at 12weeks
odds are astronomically in your favor

symptoms tells you nothing
good luck

Sex in the pool. Now, that's real fancy. :-D

Okay, lets see here - you got a negative at 8 weeks, that is very very indicative that you didn't contract HIV from the exposure you had.

6 week negative is indicative of a conclusive negative awaiting at the 12th week and an 8 week negative turning positive at the 12th week is highly unlikely. You're safe!

But, you must be careful, lady. You just might not be able to dodge the bullet all the time. Avoid haphazard sex, stay safe.

Good luck

Yea, teak's right. Forgot to tell you do take this one last test at the 12th week again to put your mind at rest and move on. But, like i said before. I bet my house - your 8 week negative is not changing ahead. Goodluck
