See your doctor about your lymph nodes and armpits. You do NOT have hiv and so hiv cannot be causing you any problems.

You have tested conclusively hiv negative. You do NOT have hiv!

Please read through all three condom and lube links in my signature line so you can use condoms correctly. A correctly used condom rarely breaks.

HIV is certainly character-building. It's made me see all of the shallow things we cling to, like ego and vanity. Of course, I'd rather have a few more T-cells and a little less character. Randy Shilts

Yes, you can have intercourse with your wife. You have reliably tested negative for HIV.

All this anxiety is likely about feeings you have about having strayed. You're a dawg like a lot of us. Take a breath, let it go and get on with your life.  Happily HIV is not an issue for you.

My friends,
Thank you for your replies. believe it, it is from my heart. i feel so lonely in this ......., you can say no one that you have hiv or you have doubt for it.  The pain  in my armpit and the swollen lymph nodes in my throat makes me feel like i am infected. The docs. could not find any reason for the lymph nodes. i even could not say that i had a suspicious exposure to the docs. i hope you can understand me. i want to feel somebody who is understanding me even if i am infected. Do i have to get retested at month six. or is it enough? Finally tomorrow i am going to have my baby Dora. i want her to be in my arms without a suspicion

If the previous replies and 12 negative test results haven't convinced you, I don't know what will.

We've already told you what we think. You're HIV negative. Just because your head is telling you otherwise and you symptoms that are bothering you doesn't change the fact that this is NOT an HIV situation.

See your doctor your symptoms and a counselor for why you keep on insisting it's about HIV when it isn't. I suspect you are guilty about having strayed but that's something to sort out with a professional person. We can't do that here. And we aren't going to allow you to keep coming back again and again with the same worry. If you do so you're going to get a time out. HIV is not your problem. Period.

Dear Friends,
Thank you for your patience. i have one more and last question. Does that medicine (which i use for thyroid diseases) affect the test result? in the net someone said hormone cure may affect the result. is that true?
 i won't bother you anymore....

No your medications won't affect your test results. You are negative.

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.
