Mar 19, 2011
On Oct. the 19th I did a very stupid thing. I had unprotected vag. sex with an escort. I have had a number of HIV test done since the exposure. I have had pcr dna at 20 days and at 63 days. Antibody test at 20,63,83,105,140 days. All of these were elisa Hiv 1 and 2. All test have been neg. I know that this is alot of testing. The symptoms that I have had and continue to have are dry eyes, muscle twicthing ( in face and legs ) and swollen lymph nodes in my neck under my arms and behind my knees. My question is can I stop being worrying about HIV. Every time I feel somthing weird with my body I start back worring about HIV. Thank you for your time and this forum.

Your repeatedly negative HIV-antibody tests out to 140 days plus your undetectable PCR DNA tests out to 63 days are definitive, conclusive, WOO-HOO-able and excessive. HIV is not your problem. No way. No how. No additional HIV tests or worries about being infected are warranted.
