Question about negative result
Hi there, first of all I would like to thank you for this test! I have severe health anxiety and waiting for clinic results after a HIV test riddles me with disabling fear and I suffer from panic attacks.
My last exposure was 8 weeks ago (this week being the 8th week). I had protected anal sex with someone who claimed they were HIV negative. The condom remained intact the entire time and I even after I had came, the semen was still inside the condom.
2 weeks later I ended up with cold symptoms such as a mild soreness in my throat, a headache that lasted two days but this only seemed to get worse at night when the heating was on and the air was dry. I also woke up with a bit of a sweat three nights in a row This cleared up within 4 days and I felt fine after.
I was worried this was due to hiv seroconversion and panicked.
3 and a half weeks later, I wake up and could feel a sore throat coming on. This subsided within a week but I was having post-nasal drip and a dry cough at the same time. I was also waking up sweating but for 4 days nights straight. These sweats weren’t terrible. My t-shirt felt damp but I feel this was most likely due to me being trapped under my blanket and the heating being on.
For the last three days, I’ve been worrying myself sick and have been having panic attacks.
I tested using biosure today and the result was negative at 8 weeks. Just bare in mind it is cold and flu season. The fact that my symptoms started 2 weeks later is what’s making me worry. I just want to know that if these symptoms were due to seroconversion, would the test have detected antibodies by now?
