Anxiety/Swollen lymph node - BioSure

I had paid protected sex (couple of times) about 6 years ago and back then I believe I had fever within a week after first exposure. I also have a swollen lymph node back of my neck for more than 6 years. I recently tested using Biosure and the result was negative but I am still anxious. Is the test accurate after 6 years and can a HIV lymph node remain swollen for so long?

Hi anxious person, I will start by putting your mind at rest and saying that your BioSURE HIV self test is conclusive and there will be no need to retest. You #KnowYourStatus. Secondly protected sex is extremely low risk (if using barrier contraception). Finally I would like to recommend you visiting your GP in regards to your lymph nodes just to rule out anything serious. I hope this helps and thank you for choosing BioSure. Kindest regards Francesca Bard, BioSure (UK) Ltd
