Hi Hafiz, I am so sorry to hear that your problem is ongoing however you have done the right thing and I would revisit your GP if your medication still isn't working. Given the tests you have had and the time post exposure I would say that your result is conclusive and you do not have HIV. If you cannot accept this then you could test using the BioSURE HIV self test as this is super easy, very accurate and will give you your result in just 15 minutes ( There is no need to be scared, medicine is extremely advanced and HIV is a treatable condition and the only scary thing should be not knowing. I hope this helps. Kindest regards Francesca Bard, BioSure (UK) Ltd
