Go to your local sexual health clinic and have a test done and get informed on HIV and other STD / STI's and start enjoying your sexual encounters. You had no risk with no other oral activities except for kissing!

Stop symptom surfing, internet diagnosis is just a complete waste of time, plus the majority of proposed symptoms you come across on the web are also symptoms to a host of other things including stress and anxiety and guilt!!! HIV "symptoms" won't come all on at once, too, they linger and happen gradually ... it is quite funny when someone symptom surfs because they seem to have a combination of the alleged symptoms all happening at once, which means there immune system is already extremely compromised! Get educated at the clinic, that's all I can say!

More than the retest at the clinic get informed ... especially if you are going to be involved in these types of activities, it's important to know the do's and don'ts of multiple sexual partners!

anotherday ... in paradise!
daily ponder ... be the reason someone smiles today!

Thank you for your reply, I appreciate your time. My main concern now is that when I tested negative 2 days ago (at 22 weeks past exposure) the individual who gave me my results told me that I should return in one month (which would be 6 months past exposure) even though it is rare for someone to seroconvert after three months.

I will follow his advice but can a healthy person seroconvert after 5 months with modern tests?

Thank you.
