Our expert says:
Early HIV symptoms can develop two to four weeks after infection. This illness is termed "acute retroviral syndrome" or "primary HIV infection." The syndrome is similar to the flu. The most common symptoms are fever, sore throat, swollen lymph nodes and a rash. The rash usually consists of small raised or flat lesions scattered all over the body, sometimes on the palms and soles.
I think you should use condoms until you know that you are not infected, to protect your wife.
You could do a PCR test(short for "polymerase chain reaction," a lab technique for detecting the genetic material of the virus itself). The PCR test will be positive even at the early stage of infection, but there is a low risk of false positive tests, so always follow up with an antibody test 3 months later.
