I had oral sex with a man that found out he was HIV+ one month after our encounter. I both received & gave but there was no ejaculation. I have been really scared & the anxiety is absoluty consuming my entire life. I got tested at 3 different clinics at the 3 month mark (14 weeks) - all negative. I also tested negative at 21 weeks - almost 5 months. I think all of the tests were antibody tests -- so I am scared that my antibodies have not developed yet because I have Multiple Sclerosis. I have had all symptoms -- swollen lymph nodes, sore throat, headaches, joint pain, diareah, mouth ulcers, fever..etc...
1. Should I take another test besides an antibody test? 2. Could Multiple Sclerosis delay the development of HIV antibodies?

1. Nope. Your multiple negative HIV tests out to five months are definitive and conclusive.
