I had similar experience as you. About 6 weeks ago, had unprotected sex with a girl I had been seeing for 3 months. The girl tested neg at 4 weeks using 4th Gen DUO. I tested neg at 3 wks using 4th Gen Duo too and neg at 4 weeks using Antibody blood test. Still have scary symptoms like reoccurring low grade fevers, fatigue for 4 weeks, swollen lymph nodes. My WBC was 2.51 on Jan 13 and today my WBC was 3.8. I feel I am HIV positive and can only be able to move on after 3 months. Still doubt my girl's neg 4th Gen Duo test at 4 weeks.. and cant;t function at all...

Take a DUO test at 28 days ((no later)) post exposure as an indication. Follow up with an antibody test 3 months post exposure for a conclusive result.

Thanks Towu for your feedback. I already had DUO but that was 23 days after exposure which was negative. Today makes it about 7 weeks, should I go for another DUO or just wait for 3 months.. Thanks in advance
