Oraquick oral swab help

Here's what happen on 8/21/15 I had sex with a guy. There was a few seconds (like 5 seconds) at the beginning that he did not have a condom on after that he put a condom on. when he go close to finishing he pulled out and finished in the condom. I was not sure of his HIV status and so I was worried and when to a place where they do HIV testing using the Oraquick advance HIV-1/2 oral swab i got tested on 3/8/16 just a little over 6 mouths after the encounter the test was negative. I'm still worried the test may have been wrong. I have not done anything with any one sins then.
1. Also should I get retested?
2. should I be worried it was wrong?
3. im not doing anything with anyone would I have symptom of it now?

High Risk, symptoms but HIV neg at 5.5 weeks


Over seven weeks ago, I had a high risk (broken condom/anal sex) with a HIV + person, since then I have experienced a myryad of symptoms until today, however I have tested negative in three occasions, at three weeks (Rapid test), four weeks ( P24 antigen test) and almost six weeks (5.5 weeks) ELISA HIV 1/HIV2. I know my tests are not considered to be conclusive , but are they a good indication? I am not a IV drug user, nor a chemo/cancer patient.

Please, some peace of mind

I am a 22 years-old MSM. Until now, I've had 10 sexual encounters. Only one of them led to anal intercourse, with me being the unprotected receptive man with a guy of unknown status. After that time, I had two more encounters (receptive oral sex without ejaculation). The last one of these encounters took place almost two months after my first anal experience.
Then I lost my mind and the testing frenzy took place for the first time. 16 days after my last exposure, I got a RNA HIV-1 test form LarbCorp: NEGATIVE. That same day, I took an Oraquick which turned out to be negative. A very faint line appeared on the T zone after about one week of taking the test (I kept it as a "souvenir"). 5 weeks after my last exposure (that is, more than 3 months after my high-risk exposure) I took a blood test (it was an immunochromatography for antibodies like OraQuick but with blood). The first test I took that time developed a red linear faint spot perpendicular to the C line, on the T zone. I took another test then since the first one seemed to be defectuous, and the result was negative.
I know that I have got 3 -ve results so far. The RNA test is usually nor recommended for diagnostics although LapCorp claims that its test is FDA-approved. The Oraquick test was taken during the window period, although it had already been about two months after my high-risk exposure. The blood test I took with proper timing was negative, but I still have the image of the defective test on my mind.
I am planning to get psychological support, but I feel that I need to be sure of my status before doing so. What do you think taking into account your experiences? what about the timing and the incidents I had? Should I get re-tested? Which test should I get? Anything that you tell me would be very appreciated...I am seriously losing my mind about this situation. I feel like I haven't found peace of mind after so many attempts...

Symptoms of HIV?

I had sex with a girl, who claimed to be clean, we used a condom but it slipped off. I came into her. There was also a bit of oral sex (both giving and receiving). I had fever (about 39° Celsius) and a throat infection 3 days after the event ( This was Friday night/Saturday morning and the symptoms appeared Monday afternoon).
The symptoms yielded after antibiotic treatment.
However i am now experiencing oral thrush and scalloped tongue, it´s been almost 4 weeks since the risk situation.
I know that the only way to be sure is to test, but how probable is it that i am experiencing Acute HIV symptoms?
Is it probable (I know it is possible) to have gotten HIV from a one time encounter, considering i was not exposed throughout the whole ordeal?

Thank you

My Anxiety Makes Me Think I Have HIV

Good afternoon,

On March 17th and April 10th I had unprotected sex. One morning I woke up and thought, "Oh shit, what if I have contracted an STD. Well I got tested for STDs/HIV and the tests came back negative. The nurse said I should get retested in 6 months to a year just to make sure. Well, I also have anxiety. I keep having what I believe to by symptoms but I have a big feeling that it is just my anxiety telling me I have it. My throat has been sore (not bad, just annoying) for like two days and I have been tired (I am a college student, I am always tired). I keep checking my neck for swollen lymph nodes because I am sure that they will become swollen at any moment. Sometimes when I get out of a hot shower I have a heat rash on my chest and arms (which goes away within 1/2 an hour) and I am certain it is HIV. My mind keeps racing with the thought that I have HIV and I don't know what to do. I know the symptoms for HIV but I am not sure how severe they have to be until I become concerned. How sore does my throat have to be? What kind of rash do I need to look for? How long should I wait to get retested (if I wait 6 months I will go insane)?

Thank You
