Unprotected sex with sex worker and scared of hiv

Hello sir/madam,
I made a biggest mistake in my life being drunk and getting involved with a prostitute unprotected sex. I started having lots of symptoms after a week or so. I got positive tested for chlymadia on week 3 and unfortunately i got positvie test for herpes on week 5. I still have a symptoms of white tongue on the back of my tongue.lately i m having knee joint pain, ankle pain and my wrist joint pain and elbow joint pain. I have done several 4th generation test the last test being on the 48 day mark came out negative. I also did rna pcr qualitative test on day 32 after exposure. Also did CMIA ag/ab test on day 39. All came out negative. But i still have joint pain, white tongue on the back of my tongue, patchy loose stool and headache that comes and goes. I m really worried of not just Hiv 1 but also hiv 2 since i m in the zone where hiv 2 is being spread rapidly. The exposure happened close to India n Nepal. Can anyone please tell me how likely that i could have contracted all those disease and what is the likely hood of negative result after 48 day mark to change into positive? I m stressing everyday and now i m already looking into options what my life would be after being infected, health concern and life expectancy and such....

You have ReA. Reactive Arthritis induce by Chlamydia.

NO HIV - DUO IS accurate.

Take Doxy for 3 months.

Good luck ReA does not become chronic. Find out your HLA b27 status.

FYI. Life suck yaar. Don't sweat it. ReA is short duration. It explains your white tongue, fatigue, joint pain, spine pain, urethritis, prostate pain, fever, chills, headaches.

Benchod, I have the same thing so I know.
I took antibiotics for chlymadia. I was placed on doxy for 10 days and was cured for chlymadia, but the joint pain started on 5th week and every once in a while it goes away for a day then it comes back on. How likely is it that i might be infected with hiv i asked few doctor and they said its not conclusive until 3 months after the exposure.
Thank you for your response.

What makes you think Hiv-2 is growing in that region? I am also suffering from the same symptoms and have tested negative till 10 months by the way. And yes you have to wait a minimum of 3 months to get a conclusive result

Why would they advertise saying it is conclusive after 6 weeks. I just wish i could go back to that time. Unfortunately its only going forward!
About the hiv 2. I have read in numerous article that says so.
