HIV related thrush comes on in late stage hiv and many times thrush in hiv patients results in a diagnoses of aids. That said if you do have thrush it isnt from HIV. Plus you have a negative hiv test which tells you right there you dont have hiv.

If you search around on the net there are lots of people with oral yeast (candida) and it come from a bunch of different things, one being diet.

the deal why people get so worked up with oral thrush is because in its lists of causes, it has the low immune system thing.....that gets people confused and quickly based it on hiv...like canker sore.

don't rely on symptoms...rely on the test ^-^

2 1/2 months is a good test, go at 3 months though for a 100% although your resulta arent gonna change.

Thrush is not HIV specific. Anyone can get thrush at any time.

the diarhea (diarrhea) might just be caused by your anxiety. you do not have HIV.
