I am a 32 year old woman, and I have warts on my genitals and around the area, which led me to a dermatologist. The doctor diagnosed them as STD and advised me to get HIV tested, as part of the diagnosis. The blood sample resulted in a reactive result. I approached another lab and got both ELISA and Western blot tests done. There too it resulted in reactive for HIV-1 and non-reactive for HIV-2. The overall result classified as provisionally reactive. The HIV-1 antibodies have all shown up positive. HIV-2 antibodies have resulted in a negative.
I am curious to know as to how it can come positive or reactive when I have no such symptoms, and my immunity is quite healthy. I am enclosing the lab reports for your reference. Please help me with the way forward to negate this or confirm this. Kindly note that my partner denies having been infected with the virus, and I have had no other partner till date other than him. I have a good appetite, sleep, and motions. I do not have a cold or flu or fever in the recent past (last two years). I do not have sudden weight gain or loss either. I have irregular periods and minimal menses flow. Usually, my periods get irregular when I have intercourse with my partner. I do get fungal infections at times, for which I apply Candida ointment.
Also, my research on the internet read that there is a window under which repeated tests are needed to be done to confirm the presence of HIV, but no doctor till now has advised me any such thing for that matter. I strongly feel and believe it is just STD and not HIV. I request your advice to get more clarity on this. Thank you.
