HIV strand....

(MIL told DH about this so I dont know every detail) My BIL went to the Dr. & did a penis swab (im thinking he got a yeast infection from his gf). They said 1 strand of the HIV virus was found (or something like that) but he needs to be tested again.
Anyone ever been through something like this?!

  • Do you mean HIV strain? There are 2 strains, 1 and 2, and 1 is more prevalent in the US. They had to have done blood work too, because they wouldn't find HIV from a penis swab.

    I hope your BIL is ok, it's bad but not the end of the world....
