Very Worried -- Blood in excrement; Symptom of HIV infection?

Nov 10, 2000

I have been experiencing blood in excrement after a possible hiv contact infection.There was no diarrea and I am worried if this could be a symptom of HIV. I've also been experiencing a cold but no fever at all. Thanks for your answer

Response from Mr. Kull

Blood in your stool should always be checked out by a doctor. I am not aware of any information that states that blood in stool is a symptom of HIV infection. Do not try to diagnose this yourself.


spreding HIV
Should I get tested????
