Tested at 4.5 months and 5 months negative with symptoms

I had an interaction on January 20th and recently (as of June 2nd) I have had symptoms that make me wonder if I am positive. I have taken two 4th generation test (one on June 6th which was negative and one June 16th which was negative). First test was taken at 19 weeks post and second at 20 weeks. Not sure if I should take these tests a conclusive or not? I also am having terrible nausea and muscle aches and can't distinguish between anxiety around this or actual symptom oms. Help me out.

Unprotected sex with someone I knew who claims to be negative. I kinda ruined that relationship by questioning his truthfulness.

It was only ever one instance, and one interaction, one individual.

Re: Tested at 4.5 months and 5 months negative with symptoms

This all stems from one interaction on Jan 20th I made original post super confusing, I apologize. When I said June 2nd that is when I started noticing symptoms. The other dates were dates of tests completed.

Any test at 12 weeks and on-wards is conclusive, you don't have HIV.

Re: Tested at 4.5 months and 5 months negative with symptoms

I have read at 3 months they are conclusive, I also spoke to both places and they recommend at 3 months to have test. But I keep reading about 6 months to be sure. Why are such conflicting reports and which to believe.

6 months is old and outdated information.

Re: Tested at 4.5 months and 5 months negative with symptoms

So these symptoms are related to something else and I should stop thinking I'm HIV positive?
