Response from Mr. Glenn

Thanks for your question,

You haven't just crossed the window period, you've greatly surpassed it! Because of all that testing, we know that you did not contract HIV from the sex you had.

That being said, it does sound like something is going on with your body. The only way to figure out what the cause is, is to follow up with a doctor. It may take time, but that's going to be the way to figure out the cause.

Hope this helps!
