Regarding health. I got tested 3 months ago for HIV,,

Customer Question

Regarding sexual health.
I got tested 3 months ago for HIV, Syphilis, Gonorrhea and everything came back negative.
I had symptoms of diarrhea and a sore on my penis that has recently gone away about 2 weeks ago and again everything came back negative. The diarrhea is still here, and night sweats during the evening.
Could it have been a false negative?

Please attach a picture.

If the HIV was elisa at 3 months post exposure, not a false negative.

Expert:  DrRussMd replied 1 year ago.

I have not heard back from .

If your HIV was an ELSA a;t 3 months, it is definitive.

The other tests are not likely to be false negative.

A sore should have been swabbed.

I suggest you also get herpes testing if this sore comes back.

You can also get serum testing.

OK, so that is an initial answer….
