HIV Test One Year After Risk Behavior?
, I want to ask. I once had a risky relationship without a condom with an unknown org in January 2017. In February 2018 or exactly 1 year more I did a VCT test with the rapid test method at the health center with the reagent used was SD Bioline, and my test results showed results NON REACTIVE. R nThe question is: r n1. Is the Non Reactive VCT 1 year after risk behavior valid, considering that the window period is 3 months? R n2. If it is valid, how can I convince myself that my mind is calm because it often interferes with my thoughts and daily activities because of the stress of being afraid of being exposed to HIV? R n3. I have also been affected by GO and have been treated and clinical symptoms such as urinary pain have disappeared. But just like HIV, my mind is stressed, afraid that there is still GO bacteria in the body. R n r nPlease help

HIV infection can occur in healthy individuals who are infected with HIV patients because of the transmission of the virus into the body of healthy patients. Thus, the risk of HIV infection is higher in patients who have a high risk of HIV transmission, such as:
1. have risky sex
2. having sex changing partners
3. having unprotected sex
4. change the use of unsterile syringes
The virus causes complaints after entering the human body for about 2-6 weeks. To ensure the risk of HIV infection, patients can do a direct examination to the doctor of internal medicine for interviews, physical examinations and necessary investigations, such as antibody tests or combination test examinations. If the test results show positive HIV infection, then the doctor can provide testing for this HIV infection.
In connection with the question you are asking, if someone has sexual intercourse at risk, and if someone is infected with HIV, then the patient's body will be formed in the body and if the virus is still in the body, then the antigen can be detected as well. So if you are infected with HIV, your body will form HIV antibodies, and if you do an HIV examination with SD Biolone will show reactive results. Therefore, this examination result based on SD Bioline shows that you are not infected with HIV because no HIV antibodies were found in your body and the results of this test are valid if used according to the procedure even after 3 months have passed.
To convince yourself, you must begin to commit to not having sex at risk and engaging in any activity that increases the risk of HIV infection. As long as you are still doing risky activities, then your heart will not be calm. This also applies to other sexually transmitted infections, such as GO. Mind stress and a heavy burden on this risk because what is done does not go according to norms and religion, so if you come closer and choose the applicable norms and the demands of the applicable religion, then you will be calmer in dealing with it.
