All severe hiv symptoms, and I do mean severe. After one time unprotected vaginal sex. Have had 5 negative hiv antibody test last being 40 weeks after. There is no way no how I have hiv right?? I'm just scared for no reason?

Response from Mr. Glenn

At 40 weeks (10 months, almost a year), your HIV test has confirmed that you do not have HIV.

Therefore, whatever you're feeling must be caused by something else. You are not experiencing HIV symptoms.

I'm very sorry to hear about what you're feeling. But at this point you must leave HIV alone and chase after the real possible causes.

Hope this helps!
