in need of some advice

Mar 21, 2013

I am a woman who had protected drunken sex with a male associate of mine. I cant remember if condoms were used the entire time. I was tested at 25 days via the eli test from my doctor then again on the 28th day with a rapid finger prick test.

My lower back and stomach ahs been hurting and I think i have some bumps on my forehead. no sore throat or fever or diarrehia.

Response from Mr. Cordova

Hi there:

Your symptoms are unrelated to HIV. You 28 day test is a good indicator of your true status. I would follow up with a 90 day test. I am confident the result will remain negative.

In health,


dna by pcr test
only for USA?
