I had risky exposure with a girl who's history I don't know. I had a little sore throat on day 13, mild fever for few hours on day 14 also mild swollen lymph nodes. Two days of mild night sweats (one day maybe becauew hours on day 14 also mild swollen lymph nodes. Two days of mild night sweats (one day maybe because heating was on) . I have acute anxiety because of that incident. I took a combo test ( hiv1 / 2 & p24) on days 10 and 24, both are negative. Pcr rna test on day 10 which is also negative. Can you please tell me what your diagnosis based on the results so far.

I am really worried. I lost sleep since that day.

I would really appreciate any help here.

Hi there,

Thank you for contacting the AIDS Vancouver Helpline.

I understand that this experience has caused you a lot of anxiety but I would like to start by clarifying that there are NO clinically recognized symptoms of HIV infection. The only way determine your HIV status is through HIV testing.

All HIV tests are considered conclusive if conducted at or after the 84 day (3 month) post-exposure mark. The negative results obtained from the combo tests are a very good indicator of your status and are unlikely to change in the future (in the absence of any new exposures). Getting retested at the 84-days (3 month) post-exposure mark is recommended for getting conclusive results and also for your peace of mind.

I trust that I have answered your questions.

Best wishes,

Malath
