Help please

Aug 14, 2014

Dear Dr., first of all thanks for your work helping people and already for answering. Well, months ago I am very discouraged because I have had some symptoms throughout this year such as white tongue and hypertrophy of the right amygdala, so I had a tonsillectomy. A month after my surgery again had the white tongue until today and palpable submandibular lymph, this mild discomfort and adds sporadic pain in the armpits and groin. I must say I had 4 years ago where a relationship is aflogo peservativo and woman had bled. This new relationship 3 years ago where no condom use, my last relationship was 8 months, receptive oral sex without a condom, is she telling me and vaginal penetration protection. Four months after this last relationship I perform various diagnostic studies to rule that might cause hypertrophy, all were negative, including a fourth-generation chemiluminescence test for HIV. I returned to fulfill myself another hiv test chemiluminescence, ie 8 months of my last relationship and the result was negative. My definitely summarize in 2 questions: 1) It is possible that the antibodies are not detectable to 3 years of dating? 2) Is a late seroconversion beyond 8 months? I ask this because according Forums 2004 can u say that today is unlikely to happen? I would greatly appreciate your response, I can not get on with my life, I have peace and this makes me tired. Thank you
