But above mentioned symptoms is continuing till today. What is my risk about hiv .please tell me sir . Thanking you sir . I am from india.

Response from Mr. Glenn

Thanks for your question,

Using condoms during all sex (making sure there isn't any tearing in the condom by using water based lubrication) prevents the risk of getting HIV. Good job! Keep up with using condoms every time.

If you had no risk, then it doesn't sound like you got HIV. Your tests are already reminding you of this.

Hope this helps!


P.S. WE say this over and over, but it bears repeating: symptoms can't tell you if you have HIV! And your symptoms are incredibly generic (so many things could explain them)
