The window period anymore is 3 months even if you know someone has HIV. Your chances of becoming infected was only 5 in 10,000 to begin with.

You have clearly tested negative outside the window period and that is conclusive. Whatever your health issues are, the have nothing to do with HIV. Work with your doctor to determine what your true health issues are.

No, you should not be worried. I assume you tested with a classic blood draw, right?

By the way, have you been diagnosed with oral thrush or it is an auto-diagnosis?
if you have been diagnosed with oral thrush this came 'out of the blue' or you were taking lots of antibiotics before?

It need not be a 'classic' blood draw. The CDC endorses the use of the oral swab test also. It's 99.3% effective. Any positive result, blood or oral must be confirmed with the Western Blot which is done by blood draw.

then most likely you have anything but thrush. if you're concerned, go to your doctor, ask for an oral swab, and ask him to test you for yeast and bacteria. regards.

@ashler1977 that i will do thanks. Is yeast and bacteria on tongue a sighn of the virus? @crabman thanks for those percentages and im hopeing the fact that im NON-circumsized didn't increase my chances of catching the virus.

everyone has bacteria and yeast in their tongue. the problem is when the yeast gets 'out of control' (thrush). overgrowth of yeast can be a sign of anything, not just HIV. go to the doctor and let us know if you have thrush -most likely not. regards.

Hate to tell you it already has taken hold of your life, but its not HIV holding it hostage, it's you. Just an FYI and a reality check. Stay tuned for your local weather.

she should have told you, but you also should have used condoms.

anyway, if you want to take a test that looks for traces of the virus itself you may ask for a PCR RNA. but it's usually very expensive. Elisa test (the one you had) is extremely accurate. and you have had two already. i would suggest you to go with your doctor to check your tongue issues first.

regards.

I sure as hell don't see where your bad luck is. You have not one, but TWO conclusive negative results.

You do NOT have HIV. Quit crying about your bad luck.

@crabman i think it's not showing up as fast because the point of entry i think because i was infected with vaginal fluid is the reason why the virus is taking time to react and show a positive test.
