HIV Prevention and Testing > Am I Infected?

Testing Question

(1/20) > >>

In the first week of August I found out that my boyfriend of almost 2 years had been unfaithful for quite sometime.  The last time we had unprotected sex was July 24th.  Since then I have had two HIV test's one at 11 days and then again at 40 days, both which have been negative.  What exactly is the window time frame for showing positive.. I am very worried about this as I haven't been feeling well at all for almost 7 weeks.. Just really worried.

Have your conclusive test done at 13 weeks past you last unprotected sex.

Just so you know, not feeling well for 7 weeks is NOT a sign of HIV infection. And in fact neither the presence nor the absence of symptoms is ever the way to know about your HIV status. Only getting that test will give you that answer.

You may not be thinking about it now, but if you have intercourse again with your (ex)bf or whomoever, make sure the guy is always wearing a condom. No exceptions.

Good luck with your test result and keep us posted.


Thank you for your answers.  Is a test at 6 weeks negative a pretty good sign though?
