Hello, while some people will develop a strong flu from 2-6 weeks after infection of HIV, many others will have no health concerns after transmission and this is why we state that symptoms are not an indication of HIV and only testing can give you this information.

We commend you for going forward and having testing done and at 5 weeks, post risk exposure, most people will develop detectable HIV antibodies which fight the viral infection. we are hopeful that these test results will be negative and please consider having a final and conclusive test done at 12 weeks, post risk exposure. Please do not hesitate to contact us again when you receive your test results or you can call and speak directly with a Helpline team member.
