Red face Fear of HIV/AIDS infection


3 and 1/2 years before, I had only a protected oral sex (used condom) with a German female sex worker. From past one year I had sore throat and fever for a couple of times. Other than this, I do not have any other health problems. When I did my general health checkup, the Rapid-Card HIV test showed negative. But when I mentioned about my oral sex (3 years before), a doctor asked me to do a Western Blot test for HIV/AIDS. I did the Western Blot test for both me and my wife. For both of us the test showed negative for both HIV-1 and HIV-2. However after reading some internet articles, I got confused suffering from extreme fear and anxiety, although my doctor confirmed me that I don't have any HIV infections. Anyone, please clarify me about this and help me to come out of my fear and lead a normal life. Thanks a lot for you in advance.

Re: Fear of HIV/AIDS infection

hiv is not diagnosed thru symptoms
your tests say you do not have hiv.
they are very accurate
you can bank on the results.
move on and go live life...
