can I still have hiv after testing negative 6months after exposer

Jan 26, 2013

Hi dr I had an hiv rapid test report done 6months after possible exposer can it give me a false negative because I have been having symptoms like swollen gums and a sore throat plzzz answer

Response from Mr. Cordova

Hi there:

Thanks for writing in. Swollen gums and a sore throat have nothing to do with HIV. Any testing done at 90 days or later would be considered conclusive.

In health,


Whats the risk of getting HIV for me.
Swollen lymph nodes, bacterial vaginosis
