Nobody has ever been known to become HIV infected by hand-genital contact. Negative Alere® at 4 weeks proves your symptoms are not due to HIV: it is not possible to have HIV symptoms that long and still have a negative HIV blood test. So for sure you do not have HIV. See a doctor to evaluate other causes of your symptoms. Good luck.

The only way to be sure is to be tested. Please see your Physician for referral for appropriate lab tests.

Testing is optional when there is no risk of infection.

I : I agree with you that that is a confusing and complicated situation. I am glad that you are seeng a hematologist and receiving B12 injections. It sounds like you are under good care. I don't understand why you have had false positive pregnancy tests, but if there is any possibility of pregnancy then a pregnancy test should be done. You could consider going to a free or low cost clinic such as planned parenthood and having a test performed there.
