Hi I had a sex with worker 8 weeks ago. It was full protected sex. But now I am scaring of HIV Inspection becasue

- Centre of my back neck swollen.
- There was a body pain (no fever) a week ago.
- My wife has itching on hands & hence red colour marks on hands & face.

- I dont find sysmptoms like fever, night swetting, diarrhea, swollen lymph in arm pit, rashes etc.
- My wife not having any symptom other than itching & red scar.

Please advise we should go for HIV test or not?

Your sexual intercourse with this person was fully protected and, I am assuming, the condom was used accurately and did not break or tear.

NONE of your symptoms (nor those of your wife) have ANYTHING to do with HIV.

You can, of course, get tested but the result will, no doubt, be negative.
