Lots of symptoms

hello world, i would just like to say that i have been having a lot of symptoms and signs that all mimic that of ahiv/aids problem. if anyone can explain the problem and what is going on id be much obliged. well first, i have always been a person that has been into health, so i was shocked when i started developing symptoms. so i had an unprotected sex encounter with a person whom i didn’t know their status,(i gave her unprotected oral sex) a week later i started to have these dark spots on my skin and night sweats. i also had this weird sores on my penis, i then became scared and went and got tested, my test came back negative. i was cool for a minute but as i searched more and more i began to see that my symptoms were related to aids. out of fear i began to test more and more but to no avail. a year later i am still having issues but my test are stlll negative. any idea what this can be.

Hi aids scared person Firstly, thanks for getting in touch. Secondly, I can't tell you exactly what is the matter with you but I can tell you what isn't. Catching HIV from only unprotected oral sex is very unusual. If you have had a number of tests that are all negative I can assure you that the one thing you don't have is HIV. A number of different tests over this time period would definitely have picked an HIV infection up. And lastly, your HIV infection cannot have developed into AIDS yet. It takes at least 3-4 years for the immune system to be damaged sufficiently. I hope that this helps. Kind regards Gary Carpenter BioSure (UK) Ltd
