Is hiv still possible

Dec 27, 2010

I had sex with this girl about a year ago and I have had all the ars symptoms like headache,weight loss(20pounds)and at month 6 I had purple spots that stayed for about a week.I have night sweats ETC.... I had a hiv test at 6 months and one at twelve months both negative. Should I keep testing because the bruises will not stop coming.

Response from Dr. Frascino


Your negative HIV-antibody tests at 6 and 12 months are definitive and convulsive. HIV is not your problem. No way. No how. No additional HIV testing is warranted. There are many potential reasons for increased bruisability. low platelets, for instance, could cause this. You should see your general medical doctor for an evaluation.

Good luck.
