Yeast Infections

Aug 8, 2005

Hi. I was with someone about 8-9 years ago. Months after we broke up, they advised me that they were HIV+. He advised me that he got it from his new partner. But since then I constantly think I am infected. I have had several test (at least 4 or 5) they have all come back negative. I recently have been getting recurring yeast infections and of course get panic stricken b/c the medicines say it may be HIV. Am I worrying for no reason? Again it's been 8 or more years and I have had 4-5 negative results. My last test was about 1.5 years ago. Is there any possible way it could go undetected for that long?

Response from Dr. Frascino


You were with the guy 8-9 years ago. You've had four or five negative HIV tests, the most recent 1.5 years ago. And no you are "panic stricken," because of recurrent yeast infections. Hmmm . . . .

Are you "worrying for no reason???" In a word, yes! HIV is not your problem.

Stop fretting about an illness you could not possibly have.

Dr. Bob
