Response from Ms. Southall
Hi The guidelines for HIV testing are to be initially tested at 3 weeks then again at 90 days, if both of these tests are negative then so are you, as long as there were no other types of exposure during that 3 month period, if so then the timing starts over again.
Having your test come back at the 18 week mark and being negative shows that you are as well! I would recommend following up with your healthcare provider for the symptoms you are having, the headache etc. Not for HIV but to see what else could be going on .
Be well and stay safe, Shannon
