hi mr cordova,
i had a high risk potential exposure in early sept.about 2 weeks later i got sick fever sore throat.i took antibiodics they worked well.then i got a week of night sweats that went away.feb 1 i got a hiv test.in fact a got a full std panel done.not sure which one i went to the doctor and they took 2 tubes of blood and she said it was going to the lab.iteverything came back negative.so this was somewhere between 4.5-5 months post exposure.i thought i was in the clear.now im getting white spots on my tongue.should i go back and get tested again or are my test conclusive? thank you for your time
Response from Mr. Cordova
You do not need to retest. Any testing done outside of the three month window would be considered conclusive. You are negative from this encounter. If you are experiencing symptoms that you are concerned about, you should see a doctor rule out other possible causes. It is not HIV.
