      #157771 - 07/26/05 07:18 PM

Had unprotected sex 3 times with a male who I believe is pos.
contracted std turned into pid within a months time. It's been 4 months now and I'm either dieing or killing myself from not eating and stress. I have swollen lymph nodes in my groin for 1 month, my periods are very heavy, I have been treated for yeast in my mouth 3 times and my ears are popping and I think it's in my throut. My right and left side in my beely hurts, I have lost 20 pounds in four months from stress and not eating. I feel like my left arm and feet sometimes goes to sleep or something. This guy got me I know he did! I have had pcr at day 22, five rapids all up to 3 1/2 months all neg. Has anyone heard of someone not showing pos till after 3 months. Could I have weekend my system to the point that my antibodies are not showing up? Please help I'm not going to make it 6 months. I really would have a hard time believing that I'm creating all this stuff myself. I was on medicine for 2 weeks for the pid and std, but to have such a hard time getting rid of yeast in my mouth is really scaring me. HELP ME!!!!!!

It's highly doubtful that you have HIV. None of your symptoms are consistent with a recent HIV infection.

As for the yeast infection, try eating yogurt. Yogurt helps to replenish the natural bacteria levels in our bodies (yes, some bacteria are good and actually necessary). The bacteria normally present in your mouth actually inhibits the growth of yeast infections. When treated with antibiotics (strong ones or for a prolonged period), the "good" bacteria gets killed right along side the bad bacteria. That can allow yeast infections to grow in the mouth, and can also cause gastrointestinal pain.

As silly as it may sound, yogurt could help.

You can be tested for HIV again, if you like, but at this point I wouldn't blame your symptoms on HIV.

I assume you've been in consultation with a doctor regarding your symptoms, right?

Yes, He tells me I have to wait 6 months. I have been told by every hotline that at three months I'm safe. This guy that I was with had some things that I really did not know were related ti hiv. Dry cough, That dermatits, and I remember that he told me he got a lung infection last year. I just don't know what to believe.

Your symptoms don't sound like they're HIV-related, considering the battery of tests you've undergone. Has your doc considered hepatitis? (I'm thinking of your painful belly.) Hepatitis is a LOT easier to transmit than HIV.

Why do you believe your partner is positive? Anyone could have a dry cough and dermatitis. He may not be positive at all.
