Hi Neke,

We would advise you to take a test. If were you live you have a 4th gen or DUO test, go for it now, and then if negative retest at 12 weeks. Six weeks seems quite late for symptoms, but symptoms are not reliable for diagnosis because they look like any other viral illness. Please go test, and keep us posted. Remember also test for other STDs and use a condom in the future.

Stay well

Of course, and people normally don't lie about this sort of things but it is better to get tested.

Is is possible that anxiety could cause some my symptoms or irritated skin.
