Hello and thank you for using AIDS Vancouver as your source for HIV/AIDS related information.

There are no clinically defined symptoms for HIV. This means that although some may experience flu like symptoms between approximately 2-3 weeks post exposure, many of those exposed to HIV do not experience any symptoms. The flu like symptoms are physical in nature and can last from 8-10 days. Some of these symptoms may be, for example, fatigue, aches and pains, headache, rash, sore throat; but again, these symptoms are not consistent enough to be considered clinically defined symptoms of HIV. The symptoms you are experiencing at present are not related to HIV because the are occurring over a year from post potential exposure; this is far outside the window period of when some may experience these aforementioned flu like symptoms.

The World Health Organization recommends that all HIV tests are conclusive at 3 months post potential exposure. Since you took your test at 9-10 months post potential exposure, your test would be considered conclusive and a strong indicator of your HIV negative status.

In regards to the symptoms you are experiencing, we recommend you seek advice from you health care practitioner as it sounds like they would be better able to address your health concerns. But to put your mind at ease, the symptoms you are experiencing are not related to HIV.

For more information on HIV, you can read our past forum posting at [AIDS vancouver.](http://www.aidsvancouver.org)

In Health,
