Hello! Welcome on eHealth forum and hope you find a satisfactory answer to your query!

It is difficult to say whether it is a STD or a fungal infection. For this you need to undergo a complete STD panel including herpes, HPV, gonorrhea, chlamydia, and trichomoniasis and also for thrush. Also, you may still test positive for HIV.

HIV test is negative in the window period (time taken from exposure to HIV to development of HIV antibodies) which lasts for about 12 weeks or three months. The test is usually positive after three months of exposure. Ideally a HIV antibody test should be done within a month of exposure (will be positive for fast developers of antibodies). Almost everyone who is infected will have a positive antibody test within 3 months. Hence it should be repeated after 3 months. Last test should be done at 6 months for slow antibody developers. If this is negative HIV is ruled out.

Please consult your doctor regarding this. Hope this helps. Take care!
