You haven't had a confirmatory test yet--A western blot.If that's positive then you can say your positive.

Look,you said the top of the condom was intact so how did you get infected.In another post you said you had sex with 3 women all protected.I am just wondering how you contracted HIV.

If your condom didn't break, if the head of your penis remained covered, then infection is basically impossible.  You need to contact your doctor, and ask specifically what tests you've had, most importantly, what type of test the confirmatory test was.  Some doctors aren't aware that a WB is the necessary confirmatory test.  Taking another antibody test, if one got a false positive, would likely just yield the same results...another false +.  A Western Blot is definitive.

Come back after you've talked to your doctor.  Something definitely isn't right.  Either you had a false +, or you had another exposure you are not sharing with us.

As far as questioning your story, do you know how many people come here and lie, either because they have some sort of agenda, or they get a kick out of getting attention?  You'd be surprised.  It's nothing personal...we don't know you from Adam.
