Response from Ms. Southall


The guidelines for HIV testing are to be initially tested at 3 weeks then again at 90 days, if both of these tests are negative then so are you, as long as there were no other types of exposure during that 3 month period, if so then the timing starts over again.

With your history of testing you are HIV free!

As for your tongue, if these symptoms continue I would recommend that you follow up with your health care provider to see what is going on. But again with your negative tests results over the last 18 months you are HIV free!

Be well and stay safe, Shannon

can i be hiv positive?
