My hiv fear from an escort continues. It was protected sex

Customer Question

My hiv fear from an escort continues. It was protected sex and unprotected oral sex both ways.
I felt I was having lots of symptoms mainly sore tight throat a couple of days after the meeting. and mild night sweats which started 3.5 weeks after the meeting. I still have night sweats 7 weeks after meeting.
I done a blood test. I didn't go to doctor. I got a kit from a company called letsgetchecked. It says It all accurate and CE European approved. I took my blood sample and sent away which then is then lab tested. The test was done at 42 days after meeting and came back negative. The test carried out was hiv1/hiv2 and also a p 24 antigen or something like that. I thought the result would cure my anxiety and sore throat and night sweats.
But a week after my result I still have these problems. If these symptoms where hiv related then my results should be positive. How accurate are results at 6 weeks.

HelloYour symptoms would not be typical of HIV.The test is over 90% accurate at 6 weeks, but you did not have a lab test, which will be more accurate. OK, so you might have more questions or want to give me more information: Please use reply to expert if you have further questions.
