The prevailing opinion in regards to ARS is that for those who experience it, it occurs from two to four weeks after exposure. Is this the case or can it start after only 4 or 5 days?

You asked the same question 3 years ago. What did you learn then?

I learned that I respect and appreciate the opinions and advise of some of the people on this site. That's why I read it.

My point was that you asked the same question 3 years ago. ARS hasn't changed. If you feel you have had another risk, then test for it.

I know what your point was. I believe most discussion was in regards to testing at that time. Don't know if the ARS portion was really addressed to be honest. I test regularly and should be testing later this month. There is conflicting information on ARS even here at The Body though.

What you should have learned was that symptoms mean nothing and trying to figure out if you have ARS or not, is a waste of time.

You went on and on about the symptoms you were having and if they could be ARS, and when did ARS show up, etc. Obviously nothing you experienced was ARS and you of all people should now know that thinking you have symptoms has NOTHING to do with actual infection.

I guess you didn't learn very much last time.

Again, if you think you had a risk, then test at 6 weeks and if that is negative breathe a huge sigh of relief and expect that a final 3 month will also be negative.

Testing is the only thing that matters. Again, any discussion of ARS, which symptoms are common in hundreds of diseases and conditions is a WASTE of time. Life's short. Don't waste your precious time.

It's all good if people want to reply they can and I welcome it, if not that's cool too. I'll be getting tested and have offered to pay for a test for the other party as well.
