This is Dr. Davidinsertive penile vaginal unprotected sex with a HIV positive woman gives you a 5 in 10,000 chance of contracting HIV.so your chance of contracting HIV is smallhttp://www.cdc.gov/mmwr/preview/mmwrhtml/rr5402a1.htm#tab1is the datayes, you can trust your 34 day antibody and antigen p24 HIV test.I bet your symptoms are not from HIVyou can get more HIV DNA PCR testing and HIV antibody and antigen testing, but I bet they will continue to be negative.let me know if you have questions.

IBS irritable bowel syndrome, anxiety, food poisoning can cause diarrheaanxiety or acid reflux can cause sore throat.we don't use symptoms to tell us if you have HIV.we use blood testing to tellsymptoms are too unreliable.
