Recently i had watery stools but no fever.
I am also experiencing dry skin.

What's "VIGINAL INTERCOURSE"? Sounds kinky!
Your HIV risk was essentially nonexistent, assuming the condoms were used properly and did not break. Your negative HIV-antibody test at 3.5 months plus your undetectable HIV PCR RNA is definitive, conclusive and WOO-HOO-able.
You ask for help because your "anxiety is really killing (you)." Well, I doubt your anxiety is terminal, but it, and not HIV, is certainly the cause of your current problems! I would suggest you seek the aid of a psychotherapist to help you confront your irrational fears of HIV and to treat your anxiety. Counseling and/or anti-anxiety medication can be very beneficial.
Remember, HIV is not your problem, OK?
