Even if you were infected doesn't mean you'll have any symptoms. If you had a risk, it's been three months and you can test now and get a conclusive result.

How was the swim? Did you spend the day swimming or what? Did you have your wet suit on or not? You know we can't read your mind. You have to give us the information.

Hi there,

Than you need a test at 12 weeks....

However, your risk is lower for a short one time incident as such.

You should check for STDs more so than HIV but while you are getting checked you might as well test for HIV. 3 months will be conclusive

Your calculation is off if the esposure time was in mid jan lets make Jan 17th for an guess.. then add 12 weeks... 14 days plus 29 days plus 31 days equals 10 weeks 1.2
why would you give someone the Wrong Date? 12 weeks would be Monday April 3rd-April 7th being a Monday. So you shouldnt test at the earliest of April 3 which is a Thursday and get your results on Monday April 7th.
