Doctor: HelloThanks for the query.Since you have had all the relevant tests for knowing the STD status, including HIV ther e is nothing to worry so much. The symptoms you described are most likely due to an acute viral infection and may not be an STD. It’s better to get a thorough body check up done by a physician and get started on a specific medication for your condition. Avoid unprotected intercourse and to be double sure get your partner evaluated for an STD.Consult a psychiatrist for counselling in case you get very anxious with this.Hope this helpedRegards
