cookie,

Are you hiv positive? If you are, you should post this in the Women's forum. This forum is only for hiv transmission and testing questions.

Ann,

I am awaiting results from my 3 month HIV test,.

As I have missed my period and pregnancy tests say I'm not pregnant, I'm asking if HIV would cause missed periods

cookie,

No, hiv would not interfere with your pregnancy test. Hiv would not cause you to miss or be late either. Stress can make you be late.

Hi,

I have tested through six months now with negative results.  Please can you let me know if it is possible that I may have a rare sub type or a new strain of HIV that the antibody test will not pick up from a standard nhs HIV test.

I keep getting strange spots all over me, I'm all flushed in the face with my nose and one side of face red.  I'm always achey and keep getting ulcers on the back of my toncils .  My tounge is always really furry and occasional sore.  I have goneto doctor numerous times and have been told that the is nothing wrong but I am deff getting these symptoms

Cookie,

I've merged your new thread into your original thread - where you should post all your additional thoughts or questions. It helps us to help you when you keep all your additional thoughts or questions in one thread. It doesn't matter how long it has been since you last posted in your thread or if the subject matter is different.

If you need help finding your thread when you come here, click on the "Show own posts" link under your name in the left-hand column of any forum page.

Please also read through the Welcome Thread so you can familiarize yourself with our Forum Posting Guidelines. Thank you for your cooperation.





You'll just have to keep going to your doctor until you find out what, if anything, is wrong with you. You have already ruled hiv out of the picture. And forget about having some rare or new strain of hiv. You will still produce antibodies and those antibodies will be picked up by the tests.

If you read the Welcome Thread before posting 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!
