Response from Ms. Southall

Hi You didn't give me a lot of information, but from what you have told me, just shivering at night is not a symptom of HIV. For testing, the guidelines are to be tested 90 days post exposure and if there are no other exposures during this time the results of the test are conclusive. I would continue with the course of testing and get tested at the 90 day mark. If you want more of an assessment of your risk, write back and tell us what your exposure was. Or you can go to HIV transmission, on our web page to learn more.

Be well and stay safe, Shannon
