Having symptoms of hiv
« on: April 03, 2007, 02:38:31 PM »
hey everybody on here you guys are soldiers.  Thanks for all the great info.  To cut to the chase i had sex with a hooker,  used a condom when we had intercoures.  But she was giving unprotected oral to me and my friend.  About 5 months later i got sick and got swollen glands.  But the thing is i have not stopped squeezing them and messing with them for months and months.  Could that be the problem,  am i just being paranoid.

You didn't have a risk for HIV infection and you need to quit poking and rubbing your nodes.

Thank you for such a quick reply.  Iam not really scared about having it or not.  I know you can live for a long time and have a good life.  But i guess im being paranoid because she was switching sucking on mine and then his is that anything to worry about.  By the way i literatly tried to rip them fucking things of theside of my neck and everywhere else.  I take it that is why they have been swollen for a long time.  Thank you very much for your advice please reply back

Cleve, you really need to leave your lymph nodes alone, no kidding. They are very sensitive and by squeezing, manipulating or otherwise bothering them you can create a problem where none really exists. If they are swollen and uncomfortable that is something for you to discuss with your doctor. In the meantime hands off, no kidding.

In the entire history of the epidemic there's never been a case of transmission of HIV to someone who's gotten a blowjob. It's safe to say you won't make history by becoming the first.

As far as intercourse is concerned you did the right thing. Condoms provide very effective protection.

In general we do recommend that anyone who's sexually active ought to regularly have a full STD panel done. Once a year is good and every six months is even better.

In relation to this specific incident I don't see any need for HIV testing.

Now, keep your hands off of those nodes.

Cheers,
Andy Velez

Thank you andy for a great reply.  I was just worried that it was hiv because they were swollen for so long like months and months then i was reading some of these forums and you said that you can create a problem by rubbing and pinching them.  That is what i did,  like i said i would literatly be so pissed i would spueeze them until they hurt and coldnt do it anymore.  SO i think i caused that problem but i havent touched them in a few days and i can already feel the difference.  But Andy do you think it was because i spueezed them  why they were swollen for so long and still are?

Hi how is everybody out their.  Thanks for all the info that you guys and gals have gavin me!  But here is my story.  I got really hammered with my buddy about a 1 and a half years ago and we met up with a "sex worker".  It was really weird had no idea she was.  She started to give us unprotected oral to both of us. And then i had protected vaginal sex with her for about 10 min.  Their was blood present because she tore a little and i remember seeing blood on the condom witch i do belive did not break.  Then after it never dawned on me if she has herpes or some shit,  i was completely drunk.  The outcome i got hpv genital warts now.  Then like 5 months later i got a very sore throat and lymph nodes all  over some big some small.  i have had the lymph nodes swollen for like a year now, but i no from other forums you shouldnt rubb them or spueeze them,  and i have everyday for that year just rub and feel if they are swollen and move them up and down just being a freak about it.  Does eveything like this sounds crazy?  Or am i just being very paranoid.  Plus when she was giving us oral she was switching penis to penis is that risky if she had precum in her mouth and sucked on mine?  Please help any answer would really help me out?

What ever your problems are, they are not related to HIV. You don't get HIV from getting a blowjob and you had protected vaginal sex in which you don't contract HIV in that manner. As for your warts, see a dermatologist.

Keep your fingers and hands off them or they will stay swollen and sore.

Jack, that's the point of using condoms. They provide very effective protection so then the HIV status of your partner is irrelevant.

There's no need for concern about HIV in relation to this incident. If you're having symptoms which are concerning you that's something to discuss with your doctor. This is not an HIV situation. Period.

Cheers,
Andy Velez

jack8888,

Can I ask why you are using different usernames while posting to our forums? Thus far, you have also used clevelandrocks

Please realize that this kind of activity is disrespectful of other forum members, as well as our moderators. People spend a considerable amount of time helping others in these forums. Using multiple accounts is at the very least annoying, if not deceiving and disrespectful of others. It is also against our Terms of Membership which you agreed to when you became a member. This information is also contained within the Welcome Thread, which you should have read by now. So really, you have no excuse.

You must realize that the answers won't change, no matter how many names you post under.

I would appreciate a reply to this message, and I hope you will commit to using just one account - preferably your original one. If not, you will be banned from further access to the forums.

Clevelandjack,

Yeah, right. Pull the other one. I've disabled your new account and merged your threads. Create a third account and be banned.
