I don't know if herpes can affect the test results, but I am in a very similar situation. I had unprotected sex five weeks ago. Two weeks after the encounter I started experiencing symptoms of herpes and went for a test. I tested positive for HSV 2 but the HIV test showed negative. About a week later, I started getting other symptoms (sore throat, swollen glands, and red spots in the back of my throat.) I am praying these symptoms are related to the herpes and not HIV. I will be at the six week mark on Saturday and plan to test again. I tested at 25 days and was negative. I understand your worry. It has been the longest five weeks of my life. God Bless
