honest opinion

I had a low risk exposure a few months ago where i had protected sex and unprotected oral with a young lady with lots of deep kissing.. That was on Dec. 28th.. tested on jan 15th duo test and it was negative.Then on March 2nd i was at at friends house and we started to deep kiss before i said goodbye and i had a core sore on the corner of my mouth that was OPEN..Later that week I went to the urgent care for a two canker sores in my mouth the dr that saw me says it could have come from a few things..then she mentioned AIDS and my heart sinked!!  i know i've had the sores in my mouth for sometime but just thought it was a bad tooth...after she made that statement i went to my regular Dr. to get another HIV DUO test on March 12th ..This one came back indeterminate..So he told me to come back in 5-6 weeks. I went back in 5 weeks and took another test..THIS ONE CAME BACK INDETERMINATE AGAIN..I took ORAQUICK home test at 5th and 7th week after the MARCH 2nd EXPOSURE both were negative!!.. How can i explain 2 indeterminate test? I know the kissing part is said to be NO risk!! but thats all that happened

I don't know why you want to know so much what caused the inder. test. You didn't have a risk, tested negative after those 1st tests.

No harm done, but wanted you to see that your looking for an answer that you can't find, but more important is not even valid based on risks and then backed up by other tests.

no reason to even think of the tests you took, YOU DID NOT HAVE A RISK.
