can the medication for HPV or any other sexually transmitted disease affect the result of a hiv blood test? i mean if someone is having medication for hpv for example and gets tested for hiv, or gets tested soon after he stops medication, will this give him a false negative? please answer!

Hello- No- there is no interaction between these medications and test results would not be affected. Take care, LHW
