Thank you for your query at
I hope you're doing well.
No revieweing your entire history, i can assure you, you don't need any further testing.
You already had taken tests before too and all of them have been negative.
6 days won't really make any difference, also considering your immunity status, if you had HIV it would have showed up in your serum.
So be rest assured you don't have HIV and you can forget about it.

Patient replied :

Thank you doctor, but would you trust HIV swab test at home? do you think blood test will give different result .doctor i feel and i really lost weight around 5 pounds and that's make me extreemely worried? do you think i lost weight because i stopped working out .
doctor is the allergy medication make the hiv show in my body late?

OraQuick is definitely reliable and it can be trusted.
You most probably lost weight either because you stopped working out, or it could also be due to anxiety.
See you do not have HIV. I have assured you even earlier. Don't relate the loss of weight with HIV. Even HIV patients take good 2-3 years to develop symptoms.
So it's happening because your mind is trying to relate every symptom with HIV.
The issue is if you keep worrying about HIV, which is NOT THERE, you will end up being in bad health due to excessive anxiety, and develop insomnia, reflux, hypertension, e.t.c
There is no relationship with allergy mdication and HIV again.
The tests you have taken are enough, and you really do not need further testing.
Hope this was helpful,
