Thank you everyone :)

I'm really struggling to keep it together today. I woke up last night with mild sweating (I sleep with about 5 covers) and have convinced myself this is a symptom too. Even though everything I'm reading said mild sweating, with no other symptoms is absolutely not typical, i just can't convince myself otherwise.

Does anyone know the accuracy of tests taken at 4 weeks? I'm really struggling to hold off until the 6. I feel like I need to know now. Although I'm not sure if enduring two weeks or pure anxiety would be worth it to have a test that I can be very certain is accurate?

Any negative test is a good one, but the fact you didn't have a risk is enough.
You will be negative at 4,6,8,12 etc weeks.

Thanks for this :)

I think I'll go get one done on Wednesday. 32 days post 'exposure'. Hopefully this will be enough to convince me!
