    HIV symptoms can be a lot of other different health related issues. You ahve had more than enough HIV exams, so whatever your issue is, it is not HIV. Best of luck to you.

    You have over-tested, you don't need any further testing. You have conclusively tested negative unless, you had some organ transplanted lately or on chemotherapy for cancer treatment in your body.

    A conclusive can be achieved at a 6 week with a standard antibody test for HIV. Testing beyond that is not a normal thing to do, you seems to be obsessing about this and also have spend a lot of time reading about it on the internet, you should go see a counselor to address your irrational fear, or if you have certain health discomfort, you must work with your doctor for diagnosis and treatment. HIV is not your concern.

    Hello I am having the same anxiety.......So 17 days ago I had sex with someone i was dating for like a week during intercourse the condom broken I told them but they didn't hear what i said so i said it loud, they got up quick and entire mood changed. couple days after I found out that they are HIV positive...20+ years now but they are undetectable ever since I am getting headaches and join pains. My friends told that the headaches could be from stressing and joint pains from gym, i just don't know what to do anymore. Tested negative but i know its tooo early and the wait is killing me.
