Molluscum Contagiosum

I was  diagnosed with a mild case of molluscum contagiosum in November of 2009. I recently read an article that people who have HIV/AIDS will often have molluscum contagiosum as well. I was tested in March of 2010 for HIV and tested negative, but I will still once in a while see the little bumps around my thighs and pubic area that are characteristic of m. contagiosum. A week ago (June 4, 2010) I was tested again for HIV, but will not find out my results for another week. Is it possible that the test in March was a false negative?

Also, it might help to note that I had unprotected sex in January, but since then have been in a sexual relationship with only one partner.
