Negative HIV test but might have oral thrush. Am I HIV free?
Oct 8, 2013

Hello,

So today I received my results for all STD's. Everything came back negative, including HIV. I had unprotected sex back in march and went to get tested in july (just over 4 months). I recently noticed white spots on the back of my tongue and think it could be oral thrush. Is it possible that I have HIV even though my test was negative? Just to note, I am a straight male. Please help! Thank you.

Response from Mr. Cordova

Hi there,

The white spots on your tongue are not HIV-related. If they do not go away on their own, a visit to your doctor might be in order. You can trust the results of your test. You are HIV negative from this incident.

In health,

Richard
