Compromised immune system always = HIV?
      09/27/05 06:03 PM

I have a bacterial infection that in most people goes away within a few weeks. But I have had it for so long that my doctor says I must have a compromised immune system and said that it could be HIV. I don't know what to think. I've had 2 sexual partners in my whole life- my wife (tested neg. 2 years ago) and before that a college girlfriend eight years ago who I used condoms with every time except once or twice. And she was a virgin and while I know she could have cheated, the chances of her getting HIV and passing it on to me seem awfully low.

So I've been on the internet trying to figure out what's wrong with me and of course, this is a really bad idea. Now it seems very frightening and I wonder if I really could have it. All the websites say that chronic infections can be because of HIV/AIDS.

I just don't know what to think. I am upset and my poor wife is very upset as well.
