Just plain Tired!!!
      #241456 - 08/17/08 05:11 AM

On May 30 I had unprotected sex with a guy that i grew up with. A couple of weeks later I got sick to my stomach and had severe body aches to the point where I went to the doctor. I started sweating at night and shortness of breath. I tested negative for STDs and HIV but I was still in my window period. I was also treated for a yeast infection but that didnt go away. I tried monistat 1 and it cleared but came right back. Ive notice my lymphs r swollen and I am being treated for yeast yet again. I have been so tired and my muscles and joints ache so bad.I tested negative again on august 6. I'm terrified to get another test for sake that it will be pos. I just need someone to talk to.

The majority of people that are HIV postive will test postive by 6 weeks. You have a 9 week test result that is negative. It's unlikely that result will change. Even with all those 'symptoms' you have had. If they had anything to do with HIV, then you would have tested postive. You didn't.

It could be your doctor has mis-diagonised your yeast infection and instead of that you have bacterial vaginosis. Talk to your doctor about that.

Your sweating and shortness of breath are non-specific to HIV. They are symptoms of a lot of things including classic stress signs.

I understand that, it's just that i cant help but worry still. I should be happy but when i think i'm over it i get another pain. I've been sick all summer and its very different. i just don think its a coincidence that they appear after having unprotected sex which i have been very careful with but not the time when i should have. I have another appointment next week to c my primary.

hey lady, i know how u feel...searching up for info, u read about how people talk abt 3 mths or 6 mths as window period. saying that people with weak immune system tend to seroconvert later and stuff...right now im like u, i start to ponder if i am the 1-2% that seroconvert late due to mayb a virus/ bacterial infection that i had prior to the risk exposure making my immune system weak to begin with. it's really stressful and i want u to know that you are not alone.

I know how you feel I had sex where the condom broke about a year and a half ago and have been too afraid to get tested until today. I also had symptoms about two weeks after, feeling tired, depressed, and a shortness of breath. I keep hearing that it is stress related but I'm scared to death to get the results back. I know how you feel and it sounds like if you already tested negative that you are in fact negative.
