false negative???
      #7140 - 07/13/00 05:09 PM

I'm 30 y.o. male from Russia, the number of cases of HIV infection in
my country is yet quite limited. I had a protected vaginal sex with a prostitute in
the first half of November 1999, but shortly before the orgasm the condom broke up.
3 months later I developed a flu like disease (it was time of the flu epidemic when
almost every third person in my city contracted it) which lasted 2 weeks, 2.5 weeks after recovery I fell
ill again with the same symptoms ( I was then in Western Europe) but much milder, it lasted about 2 months coming and going away,
quite likely it was related to some nervous disorder (I was worrying about possible HIV infection).
I have had no sex at all since December 1999 because of fear.
I decided to get tested for HIV in the middle of June 2000 (7 months after my
sexual adventure), the results were negative.
Now I'm completely recovered the illness went away (only two small lymph nodes on the neck still
persist but their size has been constantly decreasing).
Should I worry and get tested again some time later? What is the probability of getting false
negative results in the antibody test?
Thanks very much for all of you who can give me an answer.

You are negative, thank God, learn from what you did, and move on. Life is too short to obsess about something like this.

You are negative. You don't have to worry anymore.
