is this ARS

Hello there,
3 months and 2 weeks ago i had protected genital sex with unprotected ORAL sex,
i developed UTI with conjunctivitis and i got well after antibiotics treatment.

i made hiv test at 9 weeks and it came out negative
i did another test at 12 weeks and also came out negative
both were Elisa antibody tests

now after almost 3 months and 2 weeks, i'm having cold symptoms, and i had pharyngitis that comes and goes with out treatment, i also see some lymph node enlargements on my neck for almost 2 months now.


1-can someone develop ARS after 3 months of possible risk??
2-is the test i did conclusive enough???

Re: is this ARS

You had zero risk and have tested negative. what ever is wrong, like the common cold maybe? you certainly have hiv, not a debating point, but a fact buds.

thanks, Apollo..
i asked many doctors, and they all say oral sex is not a zero risk, but it's low risk.. that's why i'm concerned about this

is it possible to get false negative at 12 weeks of elisa test.
i don't mean false negative that the antibody is not formed yet but i mean a false negative due to the failure of detection etc

Re: is this ARS

Risk aside, your test is conclusive. I have never heard of a false negative, so that alone should give you the convidence that your test is accurate.

Re: is this ARS

you are HIV negative
focus on other things to be causing your symptoms.
