Hello,

I understand your concern.

Well as you describe,I also agree with your doctor that you both partners should go for consultation and treatment at the same time simultaneously to prevent transmission or re-infection.

Even counselling is advised to prevent infection in future.

Also it's advised to avoid any sexual contact until both partners complete treatment.

If you have any further query then we can discuss it thoroughly rather than give us poor/bad service.
We are here to help you until you satisfy.
Bonus and positive feedback are highly appreciated.
Thanks.

Does that mean I have hiv and she couldn't say it in the letter
Expert:  Dr. Anil replied 10 months ago.

Hello,

This letter didn't directly indicate you have HIV.

You can some sort of other STD which are mostly treatable.

Hope this helps.

If you have hiv do they usually send u a letter in the mail if they can't contact you through the phone
Expert:  Dr. Anil replied 10 months ago.

Your doctor can notify you in either way.

However it doesn't indicate that you have HIV.

Hope this helps.
