(1/4) > >>

Hallo Everyone!
Please help me!
5 days after the contact I got higher body temperature 37,5 C degrees and I was behaving like complete psycho. I swatted a lot during the nights - about 9 times. It lasted for 6 weeks. Now I feel exhausted and afraid, I Sweet a lot even after a little job I take.
I already did 5 tests (all negative).
1. Test HIV ECLIA, Modular E170 , Roche - twice 15Th day after the contact and 20Th day after.
2. ELISA AG, AB - 27 day after the contact.
3. ELISA AG, AB - 42 day after the contact
4. ELISA AG, AB - 45 day after the contact

Should I still be afraid. Please answer me - I'm getting mad!!!!!!!!!!!! :(

Help me, please!!!

Andy Velez:
It's not clear what you mean by "contact." What kind of sexual activity are you referring to?

What I can tell you is that neither the presence nor the absence of symptoms will ever tell you anything accurately about your HIV status. And there certainly isn't anything in what you telling us about your symptoms which suggests HIV infection to me. The symptoms which may show up after infection do not go on for weeks and weeks. They last perhaps for a week or two and what you have described does not fit the bill for what they are like.

Your negative test results are more than a little encouraging. The average time to seroconversion is 22 days. All but the very smallest number who are going to seroconvert will do so within 4-6 weeks after a genuinely risky incident. So your negative results imply you will continue to test negative.

If your symptoms are still going on you should be discussing them with your doctor.

Please clarify what the nature of your "risk" was.



There is no need to include your email address in your post. We answer questions here and not by private email.

Symptoms or the lack of symptoms mean nothing when it comes to hiv infection. The only way of knowing your hiv status is by testing.

What has happened to make you worry that you have become infected with hiv? We offer risk assessment in this forum - we don't discuss symptoms.

The vast majority of people who have actually been infected will seroconvert and test positive by six weeks. Your 45 day test is just over six weeks and it is unlikely to change. You may not even need to test again - depending on your risk. Please tell us what happened.

Please read through the Welcome thread at the top of this forum.


Risk Contact:  Sex with prostitute (in a night club - this is what we call them in Poland). I was completely drunk and lost erection and condom inside her. And 5 days after it started this fucking higher body temperature, alienation, lack of concentration and night swept! Exactely 6 weeks after the contact my body temp. started to be normal. Some of my friends say that from such a big stress you can get higher. body temp. But for 6 weeks???? For me it seems too enormous coincident!

Symptoms for HIV infections do not come on as early as you have stated. Did your condom come off on withdraw of your penis or did it come off during sex?
