Response from Rev. Brown

Dear Friend: HIV does not come with any symptoms. The only time we show symptoms is when we have been exposed to another infection as HIV attacks our immune system making us more susceptible to other infectious diseases. If you feel as though the HIV test you took was incorrect go and get another HIV test. While doing that I would encourage you to get tested for all other sexually transmitted infections like herpes, syphilis, HPV, and Gonorhea. Also if you want to reduce these kind of moments in your life I would encourage you to reduce your risk factors that can lead to infection.
