ScaredMark,

Nothing  you describe put you at risk for hiv infection. 

And symptoms of hiv infection, if they occurred at all, would not appear for 2-4 weeks post exposure.

This was a no-risk encounter.  Congratulations on your judicious use of safe sex practices.

Scarredmark,

The short answer is, yes, you're just being paranoid.

Symptoms mean nothing when it comes to hiv.  You can have some, none, or all of the symptoms usually associated with primary hiv infection and be positive or negative.  The only way to accurately determine your hiv status is through testing at the appropriate time (13 weeks post exposure).

But, as you were never at risk, this doesn't apply to you.

If you find you can't stop obsessing over this incident, then get tested and collect your inevitable negative result.

Morgan
