Response from Dr. Wohl

You are not HIV infected. First your exposure was a non-exposure in that you used a condom (good job). Second, rigorous HIV testing proves you do not have HIV.

Your doctor can help determine what other than HIV is the cause of your ills.


Anxiety has gone down, but I still have some fears!
HIV test Negative but sympthoms :(
