age 68 yrs. had unprotected sex on 15 06 2011. got terrible bladder pain next day. got elisa test after 15 days. negative. got pcr dna test on 29 08 11. negative. got weston blot test on 05 09 2011 negative. got elisa on 15 10 2011again, negative. firstly, age is against me. secondly, took pain killers during all these tests. are pain killers immunity suppressors? is it possible that all tests came negative because of and old age drugging? terribly worried. burning persistent. please advise. can sex between the tests affect the outcome?

You are negative for HIV from this incident. Any testing done outside of the 90 day window can be considered conclusive. Have you been tested for other STD's? Having unprotected penetrative sex puts you at risk for other STD's as well. Chlamydia and Gonorrhea are both easily transmitted from unprotected penetrative sex, and can cause burning in the urethra. If a full battery of STD's come back negative, I would work with your doctor to rule out other possible causes.
In health, Richard
