VDRL Positive and HIV Negative


Recently I have diarrhea and its due to ulcer and irritable bowel problem as doctors said. Am already fearing that as it is persisting for nearly one month.

Some times back i was involved in Insertive oral sex with someone unprotected. After 3 months of that contact I feared of any HIV transmission so i tested HIV Negative by Western Blot 3 months back. But i didnt test for VD or STD. Now its been 3 months after that.

Now since am getting frequent diarrhea today I tested both HIV and VD...I am HIV negative but VDRL positive. Am very feared that whether the HIV test using Western blot was done properly 3 months back or not. If am VDRL positive will i be HIV positive by any missed chances of test?

Please help by explaining if am at the risk of HIV infection by insertive oral sex or VDRL unprotected. Feared a lot. Do I need to test HIV for insertive oral sex.?

Hi Vance,

Thanks for your replies yesterday. Yesterday I posted stating that I tested VD positive in one lab. Today I again tested in another reliable lab and the result is non-reactive. Am a bit relieved.

Also, regarding the HIV risk with my insertive oral sex can I be 100% relaxed that I have not HIV risk. Already my HIV test is negative though.. Please respond. Thanks in advance.
