[Question #3637] Thrush- No Money, No Insurance, No Idea what to Do

Dr. 

Please help me!!!! I am lost.

I have used this forum recently multiple times.  I have seen several doctor's  with no solution.  There must be other people with real symptoms that test negative and don't know what to do.


I tested many times using alere rapid duo for HIV 1/2.  Most recently being yesterday.  All negative.

Yesterdays test was 107 days after 2 strokes of vaginal sex using using a massage girls condom that she provided. (Not sure if it was latex, lambskin). Then she finished me with same condom giving me oral.   I had warts on penis frozen off earlier in the day.   This risk was on Jan 8.

Yesterdays test was 86 days after fingering a massage girl with a minor nick. This risk was on Jan 28.

The problem is I had oral thrush on March 2.  I was treated with two kinds of antifungal pills twice, both for two weeks each.  It then came back on March 26 on it's own.  It resolved on it's own.  I then had a little last week April 27th and one lession  on the sack that hangs down in the back of your throat today.  This all has been viewed by my doctor.

I had sugar tested and it was fine.  I do smoke.

I currently started dating a women on Feb 7 whose teeth were knocked out and wears dentures.  She had a shady past but was tested for all stds including HIV last week.  Tests we're negative.  She waited over 3 months from her last risk to test.

She and I  kissed, I fingered her and I received unprotected oral once.

1.Do I need more hiv tests?
2. Was I at risk for hep c?
3. Does hep c delay seroconversion?
4. Am I in clear for HIV 2?
4. When can I sleep safely unprotected with my girl?

What do I do with my mouth problems? The more times they show up the more I feel I need more testing.  I am scared.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

You continue to ask the same questions as before, with slightly different words. I'm sorry you are not insured and cannot affort health care, but this forum is not a substute for direct care. We provide only general advice and cannot diagnose or treat anything. I suggest you re-read all 5 of your previous threads, closely concentrating on every reply. Among other things, you should have learned that your exposure carried little or no risk for HIV and that all your tests are reliable, proving you aren't infected. I cannot tell you what to do with your mouth problems:  clearly they are not due to HIV or any other STD, which means they are outside the scope of this forum. From all you have said, there is no reason you cannot safely have sex with your girlfriend.

The forum does not permit repeated questions on the same topic or exposure, and this is your sixth. It will have to be your last one; future new questions from you on these topics receive no replies and no refund of the posting fee. This policy is based on compassion, not criticism, and is designed to reduce temptations to keep paying for questions with obvious answers. In addition, experience shows that continued answers tend to prolong users' anxieties rather than reducing them (as has apparently been the case with you). Finally, such questions have little educational value for other users, one of the forum's main purposes. Thank you for your understanding.
