Why you are thinking it is sero conversion.

Dear XXXX,

Welcome to HCM.

Swollen lymph nodes can be due to many reasons not only HIV so tell me in detail about the exposure and why are you thinking there is sero conversion.

Thank You

Brief Answer:
No risk for HIV.

Detailed Answer:
Dear XXXX,

Welcome back and thanks for follow-up.

You had sexual encounter with women who was IV drug user and condom break but you had gone for PEP within 72 hours and the test result after month is also negative then nothing to worry about HIV as you are completely safe and risk free from HIV.

Swollen lymph nodes with pain may be due to any other viral or bacterial infection not HIV. Attach the report of Herpes if you have so that I can comment on it. Be relaxed, forget about the incidence and go on in life. For any further query feel free to ask me.

Thank You

Brief Answer:
No it is not.

Detailed Answer:
Dear XXXX,

Welcome back once again.

PEP does not interfere with sero conversion so no need to worry about that. Be relaxed and move on in life happily leaving behind bad past. As a friend I will also advice you to stay away from such unsafe sexual practices to prevent future risk of HIV.

Thank You
