Hello all... Newcomer here. Thanks for any help in advance. 33 white hetero male from Central NY. My problem is this; in August of 2007 I ended a relationship with my ex girlfriend with whom I had lots of unprotected sex with for months. Since about March of 2008 I have been having lots of unexplained (even many trips to primary care doc) symptoms. Such as constant post-nasal drip, Some Erectile Dysfunction issues, headaches, skin problems, recurring never-ending jock itch type problems, fatique. I have tested at 5 months with rapid oral, NEG HIV, 2 more NEG rapid oral tests and 8 months and one year. Also blood draw ELISA neg, and 4 Red Cross donations NAAT and ANTIBODY NEG out to 1.5 years after exposure.

Can anyone help me with my problem? Is there ANY way that all these would be false negatives out to 1.5 years? Has anyone ever heard of it? Problem is my "research" on the net.....tells me it all could be that. Im scared and worried...so any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks to all.

NYFirefighter with baby on way.
