First of all this is an HIV site..have you put yourself at risk regarding HIV infection?..are you concerned about a risk situation?


FYI..Oral hairy leukoplakia is not a specific sign of HIV infection.

I was put a risk , protested vaginal intercourse Nov 21st last year, condom slipped off. contracted Gonereah and Tested + for HSV2 (this may have been an exposure from years ago). HIV negative at 4 weeks and 12 weeks. Whilst I understand and appreciate that OHL is not a sspecific sign of  HIV and was just seeking some advice on it. Many thanks in advance.

You tested 12 weeks negative then you don't have HIV. Continue to see your doctor, because it has nothing to do with HIV.

Because your doctor is not up to date on the testing time line. 3 months is conclusive.

Yes, you are done with the testing if you've gotten a negative at 12 weeks.

As the guys have already told you your 12 week negative result is conclusive.

Only a small group of people seroconvert after the 13 week window period, this group includes those who are receiving immuno-suppressive therapy after transplant procedures, cancer patients who are receiving chemotherapy and long term injecting drug users.

No. See your doctor about your concerns. They have nothing to do with HIV. You are conclusively negative.

I agree with Rod. You are without doubt HIV negative. The laboratory has not made an error in your case. If you are feeling ill please see your doctor.

Chap,

You've tested conclusively hiv negative. You do not have hiv.

Take your aches and pains to your GP - it's nothing to do with hiv as you DO NOT HAVE hiv.

If you're read the Welcome Thread like you're supposed to, you will have read the following posting guideline:

Quote
Anyone who continues to post excessively, questioning a conclusive negative result or no-risk situation, will be subject to a four week Time Out (a temporary ban from the Forums). If you continue to post excessively after one Time Out, you may be given a second Time Out which will last eight weeks. There is no third Time Out - it is a permanent ban. The purpose of a Time Out is to encourage you to seek the face-to-face help we cannot provide on this forum.

Please consider yourself warned.
