Thrush / ARS symptom??
Feb 16, 2014

Dear Doctor: I'm male and had an affair with another married woman. We had multiple unprotected vaginal encounters. About 7 weeks after the last encounter, I developed oral thrush, confirmed by a doctor.I had no other symptoms or illnesses. I have had clinic hiv antibody tests at 8, 13, and 16 weeks post-exposure..all negative. I have also tested negative for all other stds.

Can I consider my negative hiv tests conclusive? The thrush has me very worried. Thank you

Response from Dr. Wohl

Thrush can be caused by many conditions. Also, some who think they have thrush do not. A coated tongue is not thrush.

Your testing is conclusive. You are not HIV positive.
