Thank you. However, doesn't having a yeast infection mean that my white blood cell count is low? I read that they identify HIV by seeing that there are antibodies on your blood cells and they look for a low count of T-cells. HIV also makes your WBC low.
BTW, thank you for replying (both of you.)
Any infection can make your white blood count high (although probably not a yeast infection, which is really just an overgrowth of what's normally in your vagina to begin with- in reality, the term yeast infection is a misnomer: it's more of an "imbalance" than an "infection").
But no infection other than HIV infection can cause you to test positive for HIV.
THANK YOU so much I have good faith that I will not test positive for the disease because the sex I had was protected. Really I am just checking to make sure. I really appreciate your response. Have a nice day.
Hi you are welcome! I hope next time protection such as a female condom is used. There is more protection that way against more than just HIV, there are other things such as herpes, clamydia, yeast, syphilis and gonorrhea to name a few.
