Not over yet: One wk is not enough for HIV test repeat after one month , and change your behavior next time take protective measures.

HIV Testing: First there is no HIV test that will be accurate within one week after exposure. Second, if one has a high risk exposure testing is not indicated but getting on treatment to prevent infection has to happen within 72 hours. Cough is in no way a symptom of a new HIV infection.
