Response from Dr. Hightow-Weidman
Hello there While I cannot explain the exact cause of your symptoms, I can assure you that they are not due to HIV. The standard for HIV tests, whether oral swab or blood are very accurate at 28 days, and conclusive at 90 days. Three months would also be a long enough window to get accurate results for other STD's as well. I think the surgeon you spoke with gave you inaccurate information. I hope that this information will allow you to stop focusing on this and take the time to really start repairing the relationship with your wife. Take care, LHW
