I am here for support. Both for me and for others.
I am extremely worried and stressed that I might’ve caught hiv.
I had sex with someone new back in December. Used protection but at the end condom slipped off.
I got 4th gen. test a month later and I was negative. 2 months after the test (3 mo after exposure) I started having painful/swollen lymph nodes under the jaw.
They lasted for a week (left side) and they are back on both sides after a month.
No other noticeable symptoms.
I read not to trust 4th gen. test if exposure is less than 6 months.
I am afraid to get tested again for the fear of poz news.
Please help. "
