Response from Ms. Southall

Hi, Sorry that you are having so much happening in your young life. Though you have had other STI's (Sexually Transmitted Infections) does increases your chances of getting HIV, but since you have tested HIV negative as long as there are no other risk of transmission then you are HIV negative. The situations that you have had occur can leave you with lingering symptoms, I would recommend continuing to seek out good Health Care and continuing to seek what is happening.

Be well and stay safe, Shannon
