Is this a symptom of recent hiv infection? I missed mine 3 months after a possible exposure and read that this a symptom of hiv infection, is this true? I tested for pregnancy and it was negative. Jackie, somebody please answer. My exposure was unprotected vaginal with man of unknown status!!

Periods can be missed for a variety of reasons, pregnancy, cysts, weight loss, menopause, exercise, stress, but I've never seen that one listed in connection with any kind of recent infection, or chronic infection for that matter.

Since this was 3 or more months ago, just go get a test. It will be conclusive.
