The "notify moderator" button is not something you use to have us at your beckon call. It's use is to alert us of spam, offensive posts, and suspicious activities.

Your symptoms don't mean anything as far as HIV is concerned. Test at six weeks as planned.

if it helps put you more at ease, reusing a condom, though ill-advised, is not considered a risk for HIV. as kicker said, your symptoms are not HIV related. your negative result it unlikely to change.

Well if your testing negative and yes go at 6 weeks, but did you ever consider that maybe you just caught a serious flu bug and have passed it onto your girlfriend too. How about the other girl is she having symptoms, maybe she had the flu and gave it to you.
HIV cannot be diagnosed with symptoms, but a flu sure can, I recommend just going to your doctor or a drop in medical clinic and get some flu meds! See what direction that takes, and of course your 6 week tests as planned!

So it's been 6 weeks since possible exposure an i just went for a rapid test, like 30 minutes ago and the results are NEGATIVE which is super good but now it's just basically a 3 month window period for another one. I'm just wondering in the mean time if one should start directing focus on trying to find out what else one could have, thats causing such devastating symptoms, and a question is it likely that when i go test in three is the a possibility for a shock in getting different results.

Hey congrats on the negative. It's not at all surprising since you had protected sex and therefore didn't have a risk, even with reusing the condom. But at least you know that you've never been infected in the past.

Considering your lack of risk level and your negative result, I'd say you don't even need to test at 3 months, but I know you will. It won't change.

As to should you start to look at other causes for your ill health, of course you should! I don't know why you've waited this long.
