Hi Shaun, If you have tested 3.5 years since your last exposure using our test and your result was negative you can be very confident in your result. Our test has a 12 week window period and therefore any result past this stage is conclusive. It is likely that your symptoms were totally unrelated to HIV but if you are still worried, there is no harm in doing another test just to be sure. However, as I said a negative result this long after a possible exposure is very reliable as at this time, your body will definitely have produced enough antibodies for the test to give an accurate result. Kindest regards, Becky
