Hello, and thank you for contacting the AIDS Vancouver Helpline. I will be more than glad to address your concerns.

Your tests are conclusive. Wearing false teeth does not affect your oral test, which takes a saliva sample. Also, having a fever does not affect any HIV tests. Since your tests are negative, your HIV status is negative, and your symptoms are not due to HIV.

Sincerely,

Ali
