Response from Ms. Southall

Hi, I would say after this many HIV Negative results after your experience, as long as there were no other type of unprotected sex you can be sure of the results. Though it does sound like something else maybe going on. Continue seeing your Health Care Provider for follow up on the continued symptoms.

Be well and safe, Shannon

HIV from first time??
