Asong as you had protected sex and continue to have protected sex you have nothing to worry about, as for everything else there is no risk..please read the Welcome Thread and follow the lessons on how HIV is and is not transmitted.

As to your other problems then you need to talk these over with your Doctor, they are not HIV related.

You don't need to test because you didn't put yourself at risk...just remember to read the lessons and educate yourself....and remember to use condoms at all times...NO EXCEPTIONS.

Hustler,

You've already been told that you didn't have a risk, so how on earth could it be ARS?

Go see your doctor about your ulcers. Whatever is going on has nothing to do with hiv. This is not an hiv situation.

Hi,

i had sex with a prostitute 3 weeks ago..this is what happend..at first we had a shower, nothing much happened there she just put soap on my body and thats all..after which she massaged me, then after we did the act. I wore a condom, she put it on me using her hands, as we were having sex, i licked her neck for about 10secnds but the bad part is i had mouth ulcers.., we finished a few minutes after. but as she went up, i recognized that my fluid was oozing out beneath the condom but my condom was still properly intact, she got some tissue wrapped it around my penis and pulled the condom out.AFter that, i had my shower agen using the soap she used. my problem is:
1. i saw some little pimple on her back, what if she had some on her neck which i kissed? But i didnt notice any
2. since my fluid was oozing out a little, couldnt have her fluid go in too?
3. when i took a shower, i used the soap she last used.

Pls. tell me what my risks are..i am really terrified for my life......i cant get it out of my mind..

You were never at risk of contracting HIV.

HIV is not passed through any of the activities you have reported. The only real risks for HIV transmission sexually are through unprotected vaginal or anal intercourse. But you wore a condom for that so you were not at risk. As long as you always wear a latex condom for either of those activities you will be well protected and the HIV status of the person you are with will not matter.

You are worrying needlessly. Get on with your life.
