I didn’t really have a period this month, could this be a sign and symptom of hiv?

My period was very spotty this month/I didn’t really have one and my period has always been regular. Could this be a sign and symptom of hiv (I’m not pregnant). I just got a yearly TB test at the hospital I work at and I never saw the LVN draw up the medicine into the syringe to inject in me. So now I’m wondering if she used a dirty needle. Three weeks after my TB test I broke out with a cold sore. I don’t know if it’s just wrong ytiming I mean I usually get cold sores maybe 1-3 times a year since I was a child. I didn’t think anything of the cold sore until my period got all goofed up. Please help! Thanks!

My opinion you should get HIV test, as there is a possibility you may have HIV, considering period changes and cold sores
Hope tests come back negative
Good Luck

Thanks for the query..

Not necessarily HIV, as it can be due to hormonal imbalance also..

For a confirmation consult a Gynaecologist and get evaluated..

If you it doubt HIV get tested..

Since you are not confident about the hospitals infection control measures, hen get tested for HIV,however you symptoms appears to me like caused by stress, anxiety.
