The obvious questions here are:

1) Have you tested? Since Advanced HIV Disease doesn't develop for about 10 years, you certainly don't have to wait out the window.

AND

2) Have you spoken to a doctor about your concerns?

I don't recall ever seeing anything about recurring UTIs and HIV. There could be several causes for your recurring UTIs. I know that it is possible for a man to be infected with a yeast infection, not know it and in turn keep reinfecting a female partner with the yeast infection. If you have had the same partner it could be something like that causing this. Could also just be plain dumb bad luck.

Only a test can tell you if you are HIV positive. Only a doctor can tell you why you keep getting UTIs.

Well then HIV certainly doesn't have a thing to do with your UTIs
