I have finished the pep after an unprotected vaginal intercourse lasted for around 20 seconds ..
2.5 days (last Wednesday) after pep i took the rapid 4th generation test (ag/ab) and it was negative.
At the day of the test i have noticed a small palpable lymph node behind my left ear (sometimes i feel discomfort in the area but i cant say it is tender when touching them). I only had sore throat 5 days before i found that node. Later on the same day of the test i have noticed another smaller one came on the other side of my neck. Two days after that i found a third one. They are all less than 1 cm (2 of them less than 5 mm). I have done self examination and found some bigger ones under my right arm (not painful) .. I had no fever or no any other symptoms during this week, apart from stuffy nose only for some minutes in one morning, but i had a college at work who had a very bad cold and she worked with me on Monday.
My questions are :
1) is the appearence of those lymph nodes suggest a seroconversion after stopping the pep? (Gradual Increasing the viral load in my body)
2) are those nodes (back of the neck and armpits) suggest hiv infection with that discription? ( i cant find any reason to have them, especially that i cant recall having neck lymph nodes before)
3) what is your judgement on the 4th generation rapid ag/ab test 2.5 days after pep? (I have another appointment next week for the lab test)
Thanks for your effort.
I hope that i can get your reply as soon as you can as i am very worried about the situation.
