Hi all,

appreciate your support for me i'm worried to the maximum!

i had unprotected vaginal sex which lasted for 2 minutes with a low risk lady but unknown HIV status.

after 16 days, felt so tired and fatigue, muscle and joint pains, fever, night sweats, then sore throat and swollen lymph on neck.

i felt better after 6 days of sleeping only!

then again i felt my lymph in neck and others and sore throat with mild fever "recurrent" that is lasting for one month until now.

i've tested rapid screening test HIV 1/2 on 5 weeks after exposure it was negative. doctor got fed up from my worries and told me no worries.

i know that conclusive is three months. i will take the 8 weeks as well. but please tell me something about my symptoms.

Note: i didn't have cough or runny nose, i had some few itchy rash on arms and neck which i believe from antibiotics i took.
