hello i had an sexual relation with a call girl ,i uses the condom but it got tore
and i ejaculated on my partner's vagina
just weeks after i started having swollen glandes and made me sooo worry that i went to a clinic and i did
an hiv test 1 & 2 , just 3 and half weeks after the exposure is was Negative
but still i had swollen glandes on my neck ..
Doctors told me that it could be because of the winter and I should take some meds
when i did my swollen glandes went down
and when i stopped they started swelling
8 weeks and 6 days almost 9 weeks i went to a clinic and i did a second test

which was the antigen and antibody test HIV 1 and 2
result came 3 days after :
Negative
Should I be worried about it??

Hi there and thank you for contacting the AIDS Vancouver Online Helpline.

HIV tests are considered to have the most conclusive results when taken 12 weeks (3 months) or more after exposure has occurred. I would recommend taking another test when 12 weeks have passed since your sexual experience. About 95% of HIV infections are detectable after 4-6 weeks. So, it is unlikely that your results would have changed.

In regards to the symptoms you've been experiencing, at AIDS Vancouver we do not go by symptoms as an indicator of HIV. This is because symptoms can be present for any number of reasons that are not related to HIV. My recommendation would be to share your concerns about symptoms with your doctor and partner with them in figuring out the cause of your symptoms and hopefully finding treatment as well.

For more information about HIV you can always visit the AIDS Vancouver website or CATIE.ca.

I hope this information helps to answer your questions.
