Thank you for using the AIDS Vancouver Online Helpline as your source of HIV/AIDS related information.
The information that you have been provided is correct: Symptoms cannot diagnose HIV infection and HIV test results are considered conclusive by international HIV testing guidelines at 3 months unless you are experiencing specific treatments or illnesses such as a primary immunodeficiency. The immunodeficiency would have been diagnosed in childhood and your doctor or health provider would advise you that you need to be retested at 6 months.
Your test result at months, is however, an excellent indication of your HIV status. Early symptoms of HIV generally appear 2-6 weeks post-exposure and they usually disappear within 1-2 weeks. Therefore, your symptoms that are occurring months after exposure do not follow the general patterns of HIV infection. I would not let the symptoms you are experiencing to cause you great anxiety about whether you have HIV or not as the only real way to know your HIV status is to get tested. If you continue experiencing these symptoms, I would speak to a health professional to get to the bottom of them as they are most likely caused by some other illness. Please let us know if you have any other questions.
