Continue testing: Up to 3 months, at which time the risk of your having HIV infection is very low. If you are overly concerned and willing to endure the cost you can be tested by pcr for HIV RNA and if negative, this should be confirmative. The tongue ulcer may well be syphilis. You should also be tested for other stds. Protect yourself in the future. You never know what your partner has. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Syphilis?: You keep asking the same question repeatedly. See my previous reply; the answers won't change. Some causes of genital ulcer are serious, especially syphilis, and are associated with increased risk of HIV, especially in Mali and elsewhere in sub-Saharan Africa. Your partner should keep the appointment with the specialist and you both should be tested for HIV. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Missed by a letter: HIV doesn't cause ulcerative lesions. And it is HARD to transmit with protected sex. BUT herpes simplex can be transmitted by contact but without fluid transfer. Also it causes ulcerative lesions. HSV but not HIV can be transmitted by oral sex. Ulcers make transmission of HIV more likely due to the break in skin BUT not relevant to earlier exposure. ...Read more

If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time, every time. You may consider implanted contraceptive, or IUD. Practice safe sex. Get HPV vaccine. ...Read more

STD? Syphilis?: The most common causes of such problems are syphilis and herpes -- in this case, syphilis seems more likely. But there are many non-STD problems that could also be responsible. HIV doesn't cause this sort of problem, but HIV is most common in people with syphilis or other STDs. Make sure your bf follows the advice for specialty care and keeps his appointment with the professor. Good luck! ...Read more
