Psychiatrist 's  Response
Hello and welcome to Healthcare Magic. Thanks for your query.

The symptoms which you have described are not specific or indicative of a HIV infection. However, this can be confirmed only after a HIV test.

HIV tests may not detect the virus, when done within 3 months of unprotected sexual exposure. This is called the 'window period'. So, I would advise you to repeat the test after 3 months to confirm.

In the future, always practise safe sex.

Wish you all the best.
