Vaginal and oral thrush hiv neg at 5 mo
Jun 23, 2014
Hello, I tested positive for chlamydia 3 mo after I was exposed. I was cured yet still had itching and some slight stomach pain. I am a female but after numerous pelvic examinations my doctor assures me I do not have pid. I had an ultrasound and ct scan that came back normal.
Recently my stomach has been hurting more. I have burning pain in my stomach. My pelvic lymph nodes are swollen I get a sharp pain in my uterus. Occasionally I have anal and vaginal itching. No discharge.
My doctor claimed I had a yeast infection about a month ago. I took diflucan and was not healed. I now have developed oral thrush. Is this related to my uncured vaginal yeast infection?
I tested hiv negative at almost 5mo and again at 5 1/2 mo. Is this a definite that I am hiv neg even though I'm having all of these problems? Also I should mention that I retested neg for chlamydia 3 times. Thanks.

Hi With your HIV testing history you are HIV free. The testing guidelines for HIV are to be initially tested at 3 weeks post exposure and then again at 90 days. As long as there are no other exposures happened during this time frame than the results are conclusive.
What you may be experiencing could be PID (Pelvic Inflammatory Disease) or other type of STI. I would highly recommend that you follow up with your health care provider for evaluation. You can have a yeast infection that needs extra treatment from the diflucan.
Be well and stay safe, Shannon
