Unprotected vaginal sex: April 11 (37 days ago)
HIV 4th gen lab blood test: (16 days post exposure=negative)
Lymph nodes swollen throughout the body (confirmed by 2 doctors) 2 weeks post exposure. The lymph nodes in my groin are the size of golf balls and have remained consistent in size for three weeks. Lymph nodes in my elbows, neck and armpits are also severely swollen.
Doctor prescribed azithromycin to reduce swelling and clear out possible infection.
After a 1 week antibiotic regimine, nodes have not gone down in size
HIV Alere determine rapid finger prick test (24 days post exposure = negative)
Pelvic exam at 24 days post indicated trichomonaisis and yeast infection took 2000mg metronidazole and 150mg fluconazole for that.
30 days post exposure= severe oral thrush, nodes continue to swell
35 days post exposure negative rapid Alere determine finger prick test
36 days post I had a blood draw for another fourth gen lab test and am awaiting results.
My question is since I had trichomonaisis (which I did not have before this encounter) how much does that increase my risk of having transmitted HIV?
Also could this be causing the swollen lymph nodes throughout my body?
I am not exaggerating these symptoms, they've been confirmed by doctors.
Can anyone provide any insight or answers to any of this? Also I have read that the Alere determine test is not reliable before 6 weeks due to several missed acute hiv infections in studies. Is this true? If so when is this considered conclusive?
