Dr. Feinberg, I experienced (after a high risk enouncter) thrush and took an hiv test after window (three months& 5 1/2 months) would this indicate the thrush was caused by something else besides HIV? Or should more time be waited until another test was performed?
Response from Dr. Feinberg
If you are HIV negative at 5.5 months, you're HIV negative. It would be reasonable to assume that the thrush was not connected to HIV.
Were My Tests Good Enough?
