Thank you for your query at
I understand your concern.
You really should not worry because for HIV transmission, you need to have vaginal/ anal intercourse without which the infection can't be transmitted. Through an act of kissing, herpes can be transmitted, but again HIV is not possible.
So you really do not need to worry.
The neck lymoh nodes could be swollen because of throat infection or some other infection. What are your symptoms?
If you still want to go tested, you can get the 4th generation test done at the end of 2 weeks from exposure.

Thank you for your answer …
But I don’t feel any problem with my throat voice changing or cough no flu it’s just the lymph nodes at my nick both left and right side I can feel it hard and it’s really painful specially when i sleep

In that case first let me reassure you, it is no way related to HIV.
You need to get it physically examined by a general surgeon, sometimes there can be a very subclinical infection causing reactive lymphocytosis, or lymph node enlargement.
The consistency needs to be examined physically.
Feel free to discuss further,

Patient replied :

Hello ,
I just want to make sure that HIV RNA PCR or HIV Proviral DNA tests are accurate within 22 days and no need to make them again after 3 months or more because its very expensive !

HIV RNA is the first thing that is very easily identified in serum.
So go for HIV RNA.
And if you want you can retest for antigen-antibody test after 3 months.
