Hello, I have been tested twice in collage (2002-03) with my results negative of hiv. Then I got one in 2005 that was negative oh hiv. But I show some symptoms of having hiv like itching groin, some bumps, and my legs are skinny. I'm a scared! Is it possible for me to pass all those earlier tests and have hiv. The person I am with currently has also been tested and passed hiv but was told she was exposed to hpv. I did look up symptoms on the Internet.

The condom did break on me that's why I got tested in the first place.

You are HIV negative. So is your partner. Thus, she could not have passed the virus onto you since she does not have it.

Look at it this way....

I am assuming you are worried about a sexual event that took place over a decade ago, correct?

If so...and if transmission had taken place you would, by now, have moved from HIV to AIDS. Your symptoms would be FAR more than an itchy groin, some bumps and skinny legs. You would have full blown AIDS with extreme symptoms that would be impossible to miss including severe weight loss, diarrhea, specific types of pneumonia and other respiratory issues, etc..

HPV is a very different (and FAR more common) virus than HIV.
