6 week negative w/ oraquick, now 12 weeks
Hello, I had a risky encounter 6 weeks ago with my ex boyfriend. He of course told me he was free of all stds and hiv negative, but a few weeks after having sex I developed many "ars symptoms" such as swollen glands, fever, etc. I took an oraquick test at 6 weeks post exposure and as of today I am 12 weeks post exposure and am making an appointment to have that test done.
I know my 6 week test is a very good indicator of my status but I can't help to feel anxious/worried about my upcoming test. Especially now that my ex told me his most recent girlfriend was an IV drug user :/ He was also recently in prison which to me seems like a higher risk as well.
Please hope or pray that my test comes back negative.
Also, just a hypothetical question: If someone did in fact contract HIV and started having true ARS symptoms, would the presence of those symptoms mean there are HIV antibodies already in their blood? Meaning they would get a positive HIV test at this point?
Thanks for your help!
