I had unprotected sex on January 28 th of 2011 ( last year) with a known drug injection user. ( did not know at time) he was later confirmed HIV+. I had taken several antibody test to the three month mark. All negative. However 2 weeks after I experienced diarrhea,fatigue,15lb weight loss, skinrashes, hives, sorethroat, chills, severe sore throat. Edema, nightsweats and a sinus infection. Still have all symptoms 14 months! My fiancé whom I cheated on ( stupid) slept with him 2 days after in Jan. 30 th and He started having dry cough, diarrhea and migranes. After 3 months I thought most if not all would show + ... I ended up pregnant in may and had my daughter in feb this year. I have taken 8 antibody test all negative. I fear for her life and took a RNA pcr test from the 4 th HIV specialist I had seen. The RNA came back negative but my question is... The RNA can come back undetectable don't I need a DNA?RNA is only good for so long. I think I am rare case... Please advise. Thank you
