am married to hiv+ man ,, be4 2 months i was herpes+ . Then i took medicine it becomes negative. Does that mean that am hiv + also or is there any relation between hiv and herpes.

Herpes and HIV testing do not cross-react. The only way to know about your HIV status is to get a test specifically for HIV.
