As long as your last unprotected anal sex was before September 4 you are completely in the clear as far as HIV is concerned. If you are limiting yourself to oral sex then you have no HIV concerns at all.

Basically

Aug 28 tested for all STD's
Result
Everything was NEG (including HIV) except SYPHILLIS

then SEPT - OCT I had numerous sexual encounters

Nov 24 tested just for HIV
Result
NEG

Then..

Dec 4 tested for all STD's & HIV
Everything became negative ... except my nurse/doctor said I caught Syphillis again

So IDK if I have it or not ...

Syphilis is transmissible through oral sex but HIV is not. There's no mystery on your HIV status if your last unprotected anal sex was in March. The official window period is three months, and most tests turn positive within 4-6 weeks after an exposure (unprotected anal sex). Oral sex does NOT count as an HIV exposure.

Refrain from unprotected anal sex and HIV will not be a concern for you.

Holy molly your a busy dude. I recommend a entire blood screen followed by a entire std panel. Also put a fricken condom on. Everytime you have unprotected sex your just pulling the trigger until BOOM. So please wrap it up when ur *******.
