hiv test

Mar 08, 2012 - 0 comments

I went in tuesday to get my blood drawn.  Luckily my dr got with the gastro and asked what tests he was gonna run.  So hopefully my poor veins will get a rest.  I told her to test for hiv, syphillis, hbv, and anything else that could interact with hcv.  I figured since I never in a million years expected the hcv to come back positive, I should probably make sure I don't have anything else.  It's just a precaution cause that's just how I am.  They also drew for geno typing, I've been a bit anxious to get that over with.  With the hcv test, I never expected it to be positive.  I actually forgot about it after I talked the dr into doing it.  Now I'm nervous about the hiv results.  I don't expect a positive result, but I didn't last time either.  I get sick alot more than most people and that makes me a little nervous.  I'm sure if I had hiv along with hcv I would have had something that would have prompted the dr's to test.  I've been with the same person for the last eight years monogamously and have been tested since we've been together.   I'm as sure as I can be that he hasn't cheated.  If I had hiv wouldn't I have some kind of symptoms by now?  Especially with hcv.  I usually require high doses of antibiotics but usually only one round.  I assume antibiotics would not be effective with hiv, but I don't know for sure.  I know I just need to educate myself about hiv whether I have it or not, but I don't wanna get it mixed p with what I'm learning about hcv.  My memory seems to be failing me more and more and I don't want to get confused right now.
