If your tests were negative than it is important that you believe them. While it is understandable to be concerned about your girl friend, there are a lot of reasons why she might be fatigued. Since I am not a doctor I can not begin to try and guess why she might be feeling fatigued. The best advice I can give you is that if she does not begin to feel better that you suggest that she go to a physician and have a complete physical examination in order for a trained doctor to try and assess what might be causing her symptoms. It does sound like you are feeling guilty about having had sex with another woman, and some of your emotional distress stemming from your own guilty feelings may very well be contributing to your anxiety. This is a very common reaction. But none the less, unless your girl friend begins to feel better, it would be wise to urge her to see a doctor to be evaluated.
