Hi, Robert: I think you are such a sweet guy. First, thanks for taking your time to read my e-mail (with poor writting skill.) Actually, I am a international student at college. I tested 3 times for hiv. They were 1,2,5 months. All of them came back negative. Also the person who I had sexial encounter was also tested negative (I guess that were the only one who had sex with him, but who know except him) Anyway, I still experience some symptoms. I don't feel that I am health as before. Should I get test again?
Response from Dr. Frascino
If your HIV test is negative at 3 or more months after your possible exposure, then HIV is not your problem. No additional HIV testing is warranted, especially if both you and your partner have tested HIV-negative! If you dont feel well, have a checkup with your general medical doctor. One thing thats for certain, HIV is not the cause of your problem.
Stay Well, Dr Bob
Is fatigue a "normal" HIV effect?
