    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

She is showing signs ulcer in mouth large tonsils and poop that floats I just need peace of mind thank you xx

    Why would you believe your daughter is HIV positive? Are you worried that being around her you got her infected?

    Large tonsils in children (and I'm assuming she is a child) are pretty common as are (unfortunately) mouth ulcers and stool that floats (as well as the tonsils and mouth ulcers) are not symptoms of HIV.

    Trust these test results. These home testing kits are designed to be fool proof and easy to use.
