Hi there, and thanks a lot for contacting the AIDS Vancouver Helpline for you HIV/AIDS related health information.
It sounds like you are concerned about your risk of HIV transmission and the reliability of your test results.
Protected vaginal sex is considered a Low Risk activity. This means that it can present a potential for HIV transmission because it can involve an exchange of body fluids. There have been a few reports of infection attributed to these activities (usually under certain identifiable conditions).
95% of infections are delectable within 4-6 weeks of exposure. All HIV tests are considered conclusive 3 most after the exposure. It sounds like you had you HIV test 6 months after the exposure. Your result was negative. You also did a test 4 years after the event and it was also negative.
Your test results are considered conclusive. You can trust you negative test result. No further tested is needed for this event.
HIV presents itself differently in different people, therefore we cannot comment on the symptoms that you have been experiencing. HIV is not diagnosed based on symptoms. I would, however, recommend that you contact your health care provider to discuss your symptoms and develop a treatment plan. Symptoms can be indicative of other viral infections. I would encourage you to check out the following resources about HIV:
