I'm sorry, did I miss something?

What was your "incident?"

Even if it was unprotected receptive anal intercourse, your test at 90 days was conclusive. You can not POSSIBLY have HIV.

I am sorry you are feeling poorly. Please work closely with your doctor to find a cause. You can reliably rule out HIV.

sergio,


The testing window period is three MONTHS - any negative antibody result over 84 days is conclusive. You have tested out to 768 days? That's over two years!

Keep working with your doctor(s) to find out what is going on with you. What ever that may be, you have more than - MUCH more than - ruled hiv out of the picture. You could be missing something important through your misguided focus on hiv.

O período de janela de prova é três MESES - qualquer resultado negativo de anticorpo mais de 84 dias é conclusivos. Você testou a 768 dias? Isso é mais de dois anos!

Continue a trabalhar com seus médicos descobrir o que segue com você. O que já que pode ser, você tem mais que - MUITO mais que - hiv determinado para fora do quadro. Você podia estar perdendo algo importante por seu foco desencaminhado em hiv.

Just because you have not been properly diagnosed does not by default mean the problem is HIV. It isn't because you have way more than adequately tested negative for the virus. HIV is not your problem. Period.

Thank you all, what I can not understand, is that after a risk, I started to have all these symptoms?

■Anyone who continues to post excessively, questioning a conclusive negative result,  or no-risk situation will be subject to a four week Time Out (a temporary ban from the Forums). If you continue to post excessively after one Time Out, you may be given a second Time Out which will last eight weeks. There is no third Time Out - it is a permanent ban. The purpose of a Time Out is to encourage you to seek the face-to-face help we cannot provide on this forum.

Instead of coming back here you should be discussing your symptoms with a doctor. HIV is not your problem, whether you believe it or not.

There's nothing more we can do for you. If you come back again with more of the same worries about your status you are going to find yourself getting a Time Out from the site.

HIV is not your problem. Consider yourself warned.

Freak, as is stated in the opening thread of this section, only those who are authorized to respond in this forum may comment in other member threads. You do not have that authorization so please don't do it again.

Thanks for your cooperation.
