Am I really positive?

Hey guys,

I just tested positive a few days ago. My doctor brought me the news and I am puzzled by this. I have been sexually active but I've never had unprotected sex in my life. Not even a slip up. The only recent incident I could think of (and I will need your advice on this) is I was messing around with this one guy. He tried to penetrate me analy but I did not let him. His penis was definitely in the anal area but I contracted it and did not let him in. He of course touched the outer tissue but I do not know how much this affects a test.

Other than that I have been with someone else regularly (who has tested Neg in Nov 2012) and we have done oralsex and protected sex so I have no idea what to think.

I am not trying to be naive or anything but how is the margin of misdiagnosis?
I also i have ADHD and am irregularly on Aderrall, not sure how that affects it.

I would appreciate the help I am so desperate and frustrated :(

Are you in the US? 

What kind of HIV test was done and was it confirmed by a Western Blot test?  If the Western Blot test was positive then you are indeed positive.

Yes I am in the US (NYC) and I doubt it was a WB test. I went to a doctor for other reasons and he just had to be taken blood and they checked it for STDs. I do not know if they use WB for general blood tests like this. I am still due to see an HIV specialist.

What are some well-known other causes that could diagnose you pos?

buginme2:
If your doctor did an HIV test a Western Blot was most likely already done (assuming you had a blood test and not an oral quick test).  Most labs in the US automatically run a western blot test to confirm a positive result from the initial Elisa test.  In the event one hasnt been done for some reason, the HIV doc will do one.  You technically are not hiv positive until you have had a positive western blot.

I am unaware of any other condition that would cause a false positive HIV result (on a Western Blot test).

From what you described I have no reason to think you contracted HIV from the activities you mentioned.
