|help me i'm so scared!
Jan 9, 2007
Recently divorced mother of four and did something really stupid. I had unprotected sex with two men a month and a half apart. Since I have had a horrible bladder infection, the infection is gone but the bladder is still real sensitive and I am still taking urised to calm it. I am also having night sweats, not every night but several times a week. I am very sore under my arms and through my breast, sometimes shooting pains through them. I have had 4 hiv tests. All negative but still having symptoms. I had the last one 12 weeks and one day after the last encounter. Do you think it is possible I have HIV but not enough antibodies to show it but having these kinds of symptoms? Please reply soon, I'm so scared! How can I donate?

Your four negative tests out to 12 weeks after your last encounter are definitive and conclusive. HIV is not your problem. No way. No how.
I cannot diagnose the cause of your symptoms over the Internet. But what I can do, with great certainty, is tell you what's not causing them. It's not HIV! I would suggest you have your doctor evaluate any persistent or troubling symptoms. If no physical cause can be determined, you should consider a psychosomatic cause related to your underlying guilt and anxiety over these two lapses in judgment.
