10 week neg quick test and trush symptoms next day.

May 30, 2013

I masturbated a guy and got semen on my hands, had some loose skin on one finger but no bleeding, I washed my hands. Had a HIV test at 6 weeks and one at 10 weeks both negative. Day after 10 week test noticed white stuff on tongue, could this be ARS and how dependable is the 10 week test??

Response from Mr. Cordova

Hi there,

At 10 weeks, I would feel confident that a negative result is indeed a true negative. You should still follow up with a 90 day test to be certain.

Whatever the white stuff on your tongue was, it was not related to ARS.

In health,


I found out a friend has the virus (HIV)
70 days
