Recurring swollen nodes in groin, left of neck, negative anti-body test post exposure.Do swollen nodes indicate seroconversion?

i am currently very worried. I have swollen nodes in my groin and left side of my neck . I had potential exposer 6 and 1/2 weeks ago and had a 6 week anti body test returned negative. the swollen nodes first arose 2 weeks after exposure and subsided. They rose up again over a week ago. Do swollen nodes indicate seroconversion? How accurate would the 6 week test be?

Hi. Seroconversion would take around 90 days on average to happen. Acute infection can present with lymph node enlargement . So the accuracy of the 6 week test would be poor, and can be falsely negative. Hope I have answered your question. Thank you.
