I tested for HIV and all other stds about one or two weeks after an unprotected sex with my new boyfriend, now that I have itchy spot on my neck really make me worry. I read some stuff online. I was googling for signs and symptom for itchy skin and it says might be sign of HIV but I tested negative, should I retest? I'm scared now.
how long does it take to show in blood?

STD's symptoms usually show up in about 3 to 14 day but the window period for HIV is 3 month's but 6 weeks is usually efficient.

I would retest for HIV in about 2 to 4 more weeks.

I'm in the same boat as you (two weeks since exposure), I'm really nervous and I'm getting tested for STD's tomorrow and goona try to test for HIV

Thanks.
now I'm really scared to retest.
I was depressed about my positive result to HSV1 and HSV2
I was negative for HIV but now that I have itchy skin on my neck starting to scare me.

You should definitely retest, always a chance that its a false positive, I'm in NH

Yeah, I will in a few weeks so everything will be more clear.

let's all hope that it is a false negative

I hate this, my life had become very annoying, worried too much can kill a person too. I was ok, just waiting a few more weeks and get WB tested but now I might have to get HIV retested too, the HIV is now my biggest worried for me, it's gonna be trauma to me.

ur not the first and you would not be the last. it is never too late as long as we are still alive

I wish I knew better about STDs, always think that condoms are the protection from STDs and mainly I worried about HIV and AIDS and not really realizing that other STDs are easier to contract. NEVER knew.

I agree I think many people think they know about stds but truthfully they have no idea!

one thing is not clear what is the risk level. I mean to what extend you have faith in your new boyfriend..? prbly I should have not asked this but still this will make you to think in right way.
