Thanks for your query at Spring Health

Your symptoms of fever after 12 days followed by headache and spleen enlargement after unprotected sex with an unknown person does signifies a high risk for HIV positivity. Although, symptoms alone cannot classically say you are HIV positive. Its important you go through a number of blood tests:

  1. Antibody test
  2. ELISA test
  3. Western blot test

These tests usually are not positive until 30 days after you have got the infection, its called the window period. It's a must you repeat the test after four weeks again. You do not have to worry about the confidentiality, it is always maintained in VCTC.

I request you to follow the following:

  1. I suggest you to always use condom during sexual intercourse.
  2. Do not have sexual intercourse with people you don't know.
  3. If you turn out to be HIV positive, its very important you tell your spouse about this.

Hope this helps. Please feel free to ask follow-up questions
