hiv negative but doubt

Oct 11, 2012

hello doctor lisa, i had a sex with sex worker before 3 months unfortunatly my condom was broken and i did hiv antibody test that was negative but now i feel vomiting sometimes main problem is my fear iam scared too much pls tell me if chances to become hiv positive after my 3 months test? pls answer to me thank you

Response from Dr. Hightow-Weidman

Hello there- HIV antibody tests are accurate at 28 days and conclusive by 3 months. My guess is that your anxiety may be causing your symptoms but you can rest assured that you are indeed negative. Take care,
