A swollen lymph node is not the sign of HIV only. Lymph nodes, just like tonsils, are the body''s first defense against invasion by any alien virus. It''s more like the fact that the body is designed to develop fever to try to fight a viral infection, whatever the virus is. If u used a condom, and it did not break at all, then there is no way u could have caught HIV in ur encounter even if the girl was positive (which u don''t know if she is). Just relax man and make sure u always play it safe, as u did. Besides, Elisa test is highly reliable and you tested after the window period.
