Relax, you are negative, your tests show this. Gum problems are quite common, are they sore or bleeding when brushing?
Whatever, the problem is NOT HIV-related. Go and see a dentist if you are concerned.

Best wishes

I apologize, but sometimes I wonder if people are posting a serious concern here or not. When I see someting like testing negative after an exposure that occured 4 years ago, I sometimes assume it is not a real concern.

Anyway, assuming that this is a valid request for input, you have nothing to worry about. HIV tests are accurate and conclusive at 12 weeks, or for the ultra conservative folks who want the extra .2% confidence factor, 6 months. There just isnt any way you would have hiv symptoms after 4 years.

Rest easy and forget hiv. I'm sorry if I sound(ed) skeptical, but some people do come on here and post absurd situations, which I think is sad, and makes a mockery of a very serious issue. All the best to you and have a great day.
