Exactly 6weeks after a potential exposure to HIV I tested negative. I was the insertive top. I have not had any flu-like symptoms either. I know that some people show no signs when newly infected. I intend to be tested at the 12 week mark. My doctor (internal med and infectious disease specialist) leads me to believe that my exposure (I was honest with him) with a negavtive 6 week HIV test is a very good sign. What are your thoughts on a 6 week hiv negative test after potential exposure?
