Antiboitics treat bacterial infections. HIV is a viral infection. Hence antiboitics would have no effect on the development of HIV antibodies and do not affect the accuracy of your test results. If you had a negative at 3 months or more it's conclusive.

Now how in the world would I know what your chances are of testing postive. I don't even know if you truly had a risk.

I can tell you that most people that are infected will test postive sometime between 4-6 weeks.

Ahhhh the Caribbean.....well that just seals your fate.

Seriously, unprotected sex is a risk. But it's not a given.

The CDC places the risk of unprotected insertive vaginal sex with a KNOWN postive woman at 5 in 10,000 exposures.

Nothing in your description of symptoms is exclusive to HIV, but then, there are NO symptoms that are exclusive to HIV. That's why you just can't take 'symptoms' into account.

Much as this may burst your bubble. Odds are you don't have HIV and your next test will be just as negative as your 4 week test.
