Thanks for coming to HCM. Please relax, very likely that you DO NOT have HIV infection. And if someone get HIV infection, still he can have a healthy illness free life for several years in today's world with advanced medicines. To alleviate your anxiety, you can get HIV testing done again. The test methods used these days are reliable. But if you had no unprotected physical relation or blood transfusion, you are very unlikely to get HIV infection. You can read more on HIV & AIDS to understand this disease, it's risk factors & approach when you have a doubt of exposure to HIV infection. There are other sexually transmitted diseases also which you should be aware of.

You can visit your doctor who can guide you to local health & wellness clinic where you can get counseling on healthy sex practices and protection methods. Please follow a healthy life style with safe-sex methods; exercise & balanced nutritious diet will help further. Try to keep yourself involved with the things/work that gives you happiness!
Wish you a happy & healthy life!
