See below: It is important to get tested. Please see your doctor and if you do not have one, go to the city or county health department for testing. Antibody tests can take months to turn positive. See if you can, have HIV nucleic acid test. Do not have unprotected sex, you know that already. See this site for more information. http://www.webmd.com/hiv-aids/hiv-symptoms.
