Thanks for your amazing works.i am very worried about window period. Since i had unprotected vaginal sex only 10 to 15 seconds with a girl 8 months back. I did not know her hiv status. 6 months after blood test done it was negative. But for the past 2 months i have body pain headache etc.. Below are my question
- Since i had unprotected sex with only 10 to 15 mints window period can be more than 6 months?
Please note that after this encounter i did not have any sex till now.
Should i go to test again. Please direct me pls pls
You are well past the window period. The testing guidelines for HIV are to be initially tested at 3 weeks post exposure and then again at 90 days. As long as there are no other exposures happened during this time frame than the results are conclusive.
If your symptoms continue I would recommend following up with your health care provider for further evaluation, but it is not HIV from what you have described from your testing history.
Be well and stay safe, Shannon
