Hi, The only way to find out if you have HIV is to have an HIV test, as symptoms of HIV may not appear for many years, but antigen/antibody combination tests can find HIV as soon as 3 weeks after exposure to the virus or unprotected sex. And follow up tests are also needed and consult general physician for furthur treatment.
