    ARS symptoms after 12 weeks possible?

    Hi all.

    Straight to the point. I'm male, Asian, 34 years old, not sexually active.

    The last time I had sex was on 12th July 2017 and since then, I have taken total 6 times of Antibodies Rapid Test, with the last one came out negative on 87 days mark.

    Aside of that, I also had myself checked in the lab for regular blood test (just the one to check your LDL, etc) and VDRL test about 2 months after my sexual encounter with the masseuse (vaginal intercourse, no condom and I came inside her). The result is satisfactory, with VDRL test also came out negative. My immune system is also up and running pretty good.

    The problem now is, as of today, November 14th, 2017 (after 126 days has passed since my last high risk encounter), I suddenly have this headache, dry cough and a slight fever. A bit of fatigue as I kept on dry coughing. Also, my lower back could sometimes felt a bit painBut other than that, everything seems to be fine.

    My question is, is it possible that I actually have HIV and that I late seroconvert? As far as I know, I don't have any history on this immuno defficiency (the one that from most forums said that is one of the reason people could late seroconvert, the things like having transplantation, or undergoing treatment for cancer or the like).

    I know I should be content with my result, but somehow this symptoms as of today keep on bugging me...

    No; you don't have HIV. You've tested yourself to death regarding the matter and have been shown to be HIV negative.

    This doesn't mean you won't come down with cold or the flu at one time or another (and often more than once) during the rest of your lifetime; just that these symptoms have absolutely nothing to do with HIV.
