Brief Answer:
This is related to HIV acute reconversion!

Detailed Answer:
Hi and thank you so much for this query.

I am so sorry to hear about this troubling contact and the symptoms that you have reported. I have reviewed your information fully and this is not suggestive of a possible acute HIV seroconversion. I understand your worries but the chances to have contracted an infection from this is minimal and there are no other clinical symptoms to support that. Be calm and don’t let your mind be too troubled.

I hope this helps. I wish you well. Feel free to ask for more information and clarifications if need be. Above all, thanks for using our services.

Brief Answer:
This is NOT related to HIV seroconversion!

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

I am sorry for the mixup. The right information is that THIS IS NOT RELATED TO HIV INFECTION. Beside, your attached test results shows that particles of the virus were equally absent and this is pretty conclusive that you are HIV negative at that moment.

Symptoms of seroconversion often include fatigue, rash, fevers, loss of appetite, anemia, low platelets, etc. This is not applicable to you.

I wish you well. Be calm. You are certainly HIV negative after this concerning encounter that you have reported.

Brief Answer:
For this particular encounter, you er HIV NEGATIVE!

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

This test is conclusive after 21days as it looks for viral particles and not just antibodies. After 21days, this is conclusive. When I say for now, it is with regard to the past up to date and doesn’t relate to the future should you get exposed. Another at 40days is really not necessary unless you simply want to put your mind to rest.

I wish you well and hope you are a lot better at this time.

Brief Answer:
You need to calm down. You worried mindset is able to do this!

Detailed Answer:
Hi and thank you so much for detailed information.

A worried mind can explain most of these symptoms. Sit back, be optimistic and positive and all will go great. HIV is not the issue as this has been ruled out. Regain the believe of your healthy sate and go by it. Stop being always worried as this will only lead to you reporting more symptoms than they are actually real.

I wish you well.
