Im soo scared
 
Hello can i have a few answers before i go in for my 12 week test im so scared! I had unprotected sex with a man( im male) it only lasted for 2 minutes but i didnt know his hiv status.. Really stupid of me i was drunk. I got all ars symptoms at 4 weeks but my mouth went dry one week later than the post. I tested negative using lab test at 4.5 weeks and again neg at 9.5 weeks using insti rapid test. At the 10th week i have the worst pains and headache i have ever had and also all my lymph nodes are hurting. But only 10 weeks after incident. Im going crazy. I have my test in the morning. The question is how likely is it going to change from the 9 weeks to the 12 i feel like im looseing my mind.

Extremely unlikely. I have never even heard of a 6 week negative test turn positive at 12 weeks, let alone a 9 week test.

Can eating loads of junk food and working to much stop the antibodys from showing up in the test early. I cant believe i slept with someone without protectioniv only ever slept with 2 people and both times using protection. Im afraid im going to have this guilt for the rest of my life.

Guilt can be really difficult, buddy, but please understand guilt does not determine your HIV status, an HIV test does. Yes you put yourself at risk but you have tested out negative. This result is extremely unlikely to change, please understand I nor anybody else can give you an absolute guarantee but really your nine week test is bankable.

Buddy stop beating yourself up here. What is done is done and cannot be undone. We all screw up mate, we all make mistakes, it called being a human being. There is not a single one on the planet that as not messed up at one point.

Thats ok Jamie. Dont beat yourself up about it mate, we have all made mistakes in life. Just take it as lesson learned, put it behind you and use condoms in the future. :)

No, regardless of your diet and your exercise or lack off, they will have zero impact on your ability to produce HIV antibodies. And they do not have any impact on your test results.

Chill out here buddy, really. You are on the home stretch. It is extremely, as in astronomically, unlikely you will test positive at 12 weeks.

Please let us know how it turns out for you.

The thing that is really eating away at me is that some people only develope antibodys after 3 months whats the percentage this will happen

No they dont? 3 months is conclusive unless your having agrresive chemo, or have been a long term IV drug user or your on antiviral medication for having an organ transplant and even then its very very rare anyway. As this does not apply to you you having nothing to worry about.
