Do I have HIV?
Oct 23, 2005

OK I am 17 years old i had sex with two guys one in January of 05 and then started with the other guy in march i contracted an STD from one of them but i dont know who. I got tested but i have lower back pain and cloudy discharge so i was just wondering if i had it or not.

Response from Dr. Luzuriaga

Your continued symptoms are more likely due to a sexually transmitted disease -- you could have been reinfected after being treated. Along with re-evaluation for sexually-transmitted diseases, you should have specific testing for HIV. You should definitely check out the Safe Sex sections of this web site. Condoms could protect you from STD's and HIV.
