Answer

Hello,

From the information provided, I would conclude your husband's tests are definitve, despite his topical corticosteroid use.

You should get tested if you've had any potential HIV exposures. I would not consider your husband to be a risk.

Continue to work closely with your OB/GYN doctor to address your vaginal complaints. (If you've had no potential HIV exposures, you should not fear getting an HIV test.)
