... I think you should stop playing out worst case scenarios and calm down. Test out at four weeks and please stop examining yourself.

I know the only way to know this is a hiv test, but before three months it is not very likely to get certain results. This is why I am trying to get some idea through symptoms.

... Many thanks for the reply. Yes, I've had risky exposure, but am in the window period and guess have to wait a little bit, but have a lot of worry as I have had 4 painful sore armpit glands (not big in size though) within past 25 days. So basically I wonder if I am infected would they develop in a 25-day time span? and if so would they be painful and sore?
Cheers. (11 replies)
