Your 2 week HIV test means nothing. However, your 6 and 9 week tests DO, as most test positive by 6 weeks. Symptoms don't mean you were infected as many people experience them and turn out negative. Some don't experience any symptoms at all and turn out positive.
Let's go back and revist WHY you feel you were exposed to the virus. Is your partner confirmed to be positive? Did you have unprotected sex? What kind? What was your role?
Many people freak out and turn out to have had low to no risk exposures. Identifying your precise risk would help in evaluating your situation. Odds of infection differ with each unprotected sexual act.
For now, concentrate on your 6 and 9 week results which are very encouraging and hang in there until your 12 or 13 week test...
Best of luck!
