Hello and thanks for reaching out to the AIDS Vancouver Helpline.

It seems like you are concerned that the symptoms you are having might be HIV related although the results of HIV tests 10 month after exposure have come back negative. We are glad to help.

At AIDS Vancouver we regard any tests that are done 12 weeks after exposure to be conclusive. In the case that you have just described, if there was no exposure after the incident you defined then we would consider the results to be conclusive. This means you are HIV negative.

We do not use symptoms to determine the HIV status of an individual. The only accurate way to determine the HIV status of an individual is getting tested and you have already done this. From the information you provided it seems like the symptoms that you are having are not related to HIV. We encourage you to discuss your case with your doctor who can do further investigations to determine the cause.

Our Helpline Online forum will have postings related to your question that you can also refer to. If you have further questions feel free to contact us again.

Thank you for contacting the AIDS Vancouver Helpline.
