negative at 68days after exposure but still having symptoms

i had 2 episodes of broken condoms with a csw 10wks ago, i have been having stuffy nose since 10days after exposure up till now, also, i have been having swollen lymph nodes in my armpits, they come and go at the interval of 10days. Sometimes, 2 nodes will appear on one armpit, had headache for about 2weeks at 2weeks after exposure. I tested at 4wks, 8weeks and 10weeks all negative. I had fever and swollen lymphnodes in my armpits at 10weeks after exposure. This lasted for 3days. The swollen lymphnodes are still there. Will lymphnodes associated with HIV infection come and go like this? And how reliable are my tests at 8weeks and 10weeks? Am afraid that i will be positive at 13weeks because of my stuffy nose that i am still having and lymph nodes in my armpit that comes and goes.

If your symptoms were hiv related you would have tested positive. Your 10 week test is more or less conclusive and your 12 week will not change.

Hi,

Your ailments are not HIV related, if they were you would have tested positive. You will not test positive at 13 weeks and your stuffy nose as got nothing whatsoever to do with HIV.

Kevin.

Nothing to do with hiv. Swollen nodes that come and go are not hiv realted, but then your nodes would not come and go anyway.

Re: negative at 68days after exposure but still having symptoms

hello, i had another test yesterday being (79days) sfter exposure. It was negative. But i am still having swollen lymph nodes in my armpits that comes and goes. With stuffy nose and early morning fever. I read that persistent generalized lymphadenopathy is a major sign of HIV infection. Pls can this be HIV? I dont see any reason why my nodes will be swollen apart from that. And can my 79days negative result change at 12weeks? And is the 12weeks 84days or 90days?
