HIV Prevention and Testing > Do I Have HIV?

Will any other infection jam test results



Hi all,

As I understand it STD's have higher risks of transmission than HIV itself.
If someone tested for HIv while being infected by another sTD's, would the test results be reliable? Could the STD create a false negative?

Also what are the typical window periods for the most common STD's?

Thanks in advance

HIV tests are not impacted by other STDs.
