User avatar Hi gazza9000uk9000,
In my opinion a re-evaluation needs done. Also keep in mind that there is a six month "window" period where one may test negative for HIV and still be infected with the virus. In the future keep in mind, if you are going to be sexually active, use protection.

User avatar Hi gazza9000uk9000,
I'm glad to hear that you are feeling a little better. It would be next to impossible for me to say yes or no regarding whether you have HIV. The only definative way of knowing is by being re-tested.
