R/O other infections: I am so happy for you that your tests so far are negative. Please use this scare for educational prevention purposes and wear condoms from now on. LImit the number of sexual partners to hopefully one as well. Repeat your hiv test in 3 months, and then at 6 months to be extra cautious. Please ask your doctor to consider other types of infectious such as TB if the repeat CBC also has increased WBC's
