Answer: 

Hello,

Thank you for your inquiry. From what we gather from the question, you were asking about the conclusiveness of your test results. From the information given, this scenario is determined to be Low Risk (Evidence of transmission occurs through these activities when certain conditions are met).This risk level presents a potential for HIV transmission because they involve an exchange of body fluids.

From what we gather from this scenario, you have tested multiple times for HIV with negative results. The ELISA test is a third generation HIV test with a window period of 4 weeks to 3 months (although up to 95% of infections are detectable within 4-6 weeks). Most people develop detectable antibodies in 21-25 days. The accuracy of this test is 99.8%. The Western Blot has a window period of 4-6 weeks with an accuracy of 99.9% after 4-6 weeks [1]. At 86 and 92 days, these tests would be considered conclusive.

In regards to the body warmness you are experiencing, HIV symptoms often mirror other viral infections such as the flu, and the only way to really know is to get an HIV test. As you have tested multiple times for HIV with negative results, we recommend you refer to a physician for other health related questions.
