    None of these symptoms have anything to do with HIV.

    Your 12 week HIV screening test (the last test you need to take by the way) will have no different results than any of the others. It will come back as "non-reactive" (negative) indicating that yes, you are HIV negative.

    Repeat this after me...

    "Testing beats out "symptoms" every time".

    Keep repeating it.

    Sounds like you got an STD, go to a Doctor. Or you could have something else, but go to a DOCTOR.

    No way to tell NEGATIVE means your not producing antibodies that kick off the test. SHOULD be having safer sex. Testing so often is not going to help. Go to doctor, Have them check you out. I WAS diagnosed in 83 by co-culture, did not kick off the test till 90. The test is more sensitive now but can be time before you test poz, That the window, of infection, to producing antibodies to kick off the test. safer sex using plastic condoms, and crisco are the way to go. about 56,000 people will get hiv this yr. Half are gay, 37% are straight. NON LATEX CONDOMS SHOULD BE AVAILABLE IN EVERY SETTING.

    Any sores need to be treated by a DOCTOR. HIV sometimes feels like the FLU, or can be missed. IF SEXUALY ACTIVE GET TESTED EVERY YR. use "PLASTIC" condoms and crisco.
    have had HIV FOR OVER 30 YRS. I know all the major HIV doctors in the country. 56,000 new cases a yr is way to many.

    MATSTRAZZ replied to georgiagail's response:
    Testing more than 4 times a yr is, not a good idea. First you need to be having sex with non latex condoms, and crisco. Second it will not give you more info. People often think if they tested negative, that they can have unsafe sex. Having a huge focus on HIV can be a sign of mental health problems. If someone is testing all the time they should be seeing a doctor. If you self test, the cost can get pricey. If you go to a test site, more than 4 times a yr, you need a mental health check.

    "didn't get you"

    We do not attempt to diagnose HIV by symptoms (although, as I pointed out, these symptoms have nothing to do with HIV).

    We focus on test results.

    Your test results up to 10 weeks have been negative. You are not HIV positive from these encounters. These symptoms have nothing to do with HIV.

    NO I got tested in 1983, First I tested negative on the test, DOC GROOPMAN in a lab was able to grow HIV virus from my blood.in an incubator. I has had all the symptoms of HIV since 1979. Drenching sweats, yeast infections,very loose bowels, and being sick all the time. You are fixated on HIV, you tested negative, one sexual exposer even if they did have HIV is less than 1 in 200. That drops to like winning the lottery, with a random female, esp a white one. What you need is HELP with your mental health. YOU have a mental disorder, You need a mental health check up with a doctor. Talk to your doctor about all of this worry, and your testing, week after week. GO TO YOUR DOCTOR, tell him all this stuff. This is not normal behavior. you could be a germaphobe, you could be a hyprocondriac, you need a doctor to help you, think this threw and get MENTAL HEALTH treatment.
