Hello

If I was taking a test and had to pick A or B, from which answer choice A) is mono and B) is herpes.

I would pick answer choice A.

odds are this is neither going on.  Your symptoms certainly are not due to genital herpes infection that's for sure!

are you continuing to follow up with your provider with basic testing and exams?

we recommend protected sexual contact because it works! No reason to think you contracted hiv from a one time protected encounter!!

not everything is std related!!!!

You need to keep following up with your doctor to find out what is going on.   Don't limit yourself to only thinking stds as a cause.

Parama, calm down brother.  If it was HIV and you tested negative 99 days later, you're fine.  I'm in the same boat, guilt and anxiety is taking over logic and reason.  You had protected sex, you're fine.  You probably got mono, or you think you have stuff that you don't.  I get a zit on my arm and I think if folloculities, zit on my neck and I think it's a rash, I had cold sores and thought I was infected for sure.  And still tested negative.  Relax bud, take a hold of your anxiety and you'll be fine.  You tested 99 days out when most people develop antibodies between TWO to 8 weeks.  Everyone likes to talk chances, and CDC's 6 month statement scares the heck out of everyone, but remember, they're covering their behind because a few people might lie about exposure date or have other serious immune deficiencies(like cancer and under treatment), and their antibodies might not show up until later.  Think about it, if you had HIV for this long, do you really think your body wouldn't have antibodies for it?  Do you think it takes your body 3 months to build antibodies to the flu?  Make sense now?  Don't listen to these conservative clowns telling you to test 6 months later.  You tested after 90 days, you are fine!
