I had joint pain

I had joint pain at day 35 then muscle aches 6 weeks then I tested at 8 weeks using a Biosure hiv selftest kit. What are the chances of of getting the same results Negative after 12 weeks having experienced the main symptoms which are over now on

Hi Wondering, A negative result using the BioSURE HIV self test at 6 weeks is a good indication of your status but you must retest at 12 weeks for a conclusive result. The chances of your negative result changing after 6 weeks is unlikely but you must retest to know your status. Kindest regards, Becky
