scared and worried

I have a question since I’m scared and worried I had a incident 3 and half months ago i was having sex with a girl and the condom broke I’m not sure if she is clean or not. I had sex with my wife too….I went and checked my self 3 times and it came back negative. Now my wife has developed strep throat and the flu (since she went to the doctor and got positive for both) she is running low fever and muscle pain she is having headaches as well. My question is since I came back negative after 3 months and a half should I be worried? Should I get my self tested again? Is the flu part of hiv symptoms?

HI Beyond Scared12345, If you used a second generation test, like BioSure's, any result after 12 weeks is conclusive. During seroconversion, individuals experience flu-like symptoms. But also since it is winter, the symptoms could be related to the cold season. Kindest regards, Becky, BioSURE UK LTD
