Customer Question

can you help? I am very concerned that I may have contracted HIV through a bacterial infection and maybe my knowledge is wrong.
I had unprotected sex 6 weeks ago and caught a bacterial infection which then cleared up with 5 days of medication. I have had two HIV test which have both been negative, I also know that there is a 3month window and will be tested again over the next few weeks.
My question is: Is is possible to get a bacterial infection without necessarily getting HIV? What types of bacteria are passed etc?
I have been in a real panic and seek some understanding?
