Blood in stool????
      #194773 - 06/06/06 03:06 PM

Is blood in a stool a symptom? I read yesterday that green stool is not a symptom but what about little blood particles on toilet paper after defecating? (Sorry for the visual)

What do you think it is indicating. Remember HIV itself doesn't really have symptoms. It's the symptoms of OI's that present. Have you been HIV positive that many years without seeing your doctor and being treated????

Why are you even bothering to waste band width with this? 8 1/2 month negative and you still don't believe you aren't infected. That's your problem.

Blood in the stool in not an indicator of HIV. It could mean that you have something like hemorrhoids or a host of other things other than HIV.

HIV cannot be diagnosed based on symptoms. You'll need to get a HIV test if you had unprotected sex with someone who's status you were unsure of or someone known to be HIV positive.

You should probably go to your GP to be checked out for the problem you describe. He may do a colonoscopy to find out what's going on with you.

You have tested WELLLLLLLLLLLLLLL beyond the window. You are negative!!!!!

Now get your bloody stools to the doctors, and have that checked out. If you are going to concentrate on HIV you could be missing something MORE SERIOUS!! Blood in your stool is never a good sign.

Take care! :)
