hiv infection question
« on: December 01, 2006, 09:05:52 AM »
Hello. My story goes that i had sex with a prostitute, who was from Russia. In intercourse i used two rubbers that she put on me. However this was my first time intercourse so my penis shrank to a normal small size while still been in the girl and was there quite some time (with condoms on). she removed the condoms and i took a quick shower without so much putting attention on washing my genitals. after the sex i had a tingling feeling which ment that i had catched some disease but don't know what. a Week later my lymboids on my genital area hurted bad. especially on my right side. they are still tender but they don't hurt so much any more. Allso i felt pretty tired(dispite worrying) . between the week symptoms occured  and intercourse happened i also suffered mild erection problems during that period(propably because it was my first time.Please help me, I know this sound like  iīm suffering from factitious disorder, but the pain felt and still felts real.

I  went to see doctor but she said that i should't worry because so much.  something else could[ also cause my lymphoids to hurt and the symptoms started after one week are too short for hiv. She took a test after 10 days of possible infection risk a now i wait for results. I'm planning to go on pcr-test but right now i can't consider anything else being the case rather than hiv-virus.

You didn't have a a risk for hiv. You had protected sex. You need learn the proper way to wear a condom. You never double up on condoms that could cause a failure. You lucked out this time, but you do need to learn the proper use of a concom.

thank you for those hopyfull words. They really calm me down some what. The girl used lubricant and i looked that she didn't use injection drugs. I know that sounded stupid since Hiv could be with anyone but at least i thought it would mean less propable infetion source. Also she suffered from cold I think so this could also be it.

I just hope that she was a responsible sex worker in that sense. Excuse me my language use of english is worse than my use of condom.

other symptoms were also stomach pain and sense pain in knee

iīm sorry to bother again but I forgot to mention something in my prior message. I had sex with an russian prostitute and developed pain in my genital area lymbydes. i forgot to mention that the girl ride on me so i canīt tell whether the condom has moved when i got so scared that i shrunk in to my normal size.
does position have much effect on condoms movement?

Can you stick to one thread and not start multiple threads. It makes it hard to follow your concerns. You were instructed in the welcome thread (top of this forum) not to do so. Can you read through that again and adhere to the guidelines.

It doesn't matter if there were movement or not. The condom did not come off and you maintained safe sex. It doesn't change the matter that you were not at risk.

Condoms have been proven to be very effective when it comes to preventing hiv transmission. You need to be using condoms for anal or vaginal intercourse, every time, no exceptions until such time as you are in a securely monogamous relationship where you have both tested for ALL STIs together. To agree to have unprotected intercourse is to consent to the possibility of being infected with a sexually transmitted infection.

Have a look through the condom and lube links in my signature line so you can use condoms with confidence.

While you do not need to test over this specific, protected incident, anyone who is sexually active should be having a full sexual health care check-up, including but not limited to hiv testing, at least once a year and more often if unprotected intercourse occurs.

If you aren't already having regular, routine check-ups, now is the time to start. As long as you make sure condoms are being used for intercourse, you can fully expect your routine hiv tests to return with negative results. Don't forget to always get checked for all the other sexually transmitted infections as well, because they are MUCH easier to transmit than hiv.

Why,

Symptoms or the lack of symptoms mean nothing when it comes to hiv infection and for that reason, we do not discuss symptoms here.

Did you even bother to read my previous post to you? Go read it again.

whatīs your opinion about lambskin condoms that we used. Good for pregnancy but don't too much good on sex diseases? If they don't prevent diseases so why they are still kept in the market?

For married people with latex allergies, at a guess.

why,

You do not need further testing. Those four days aren't going to make the slightest bit of difference. The vast majority of people who have actually been infected will seroconvert and test positive by six WEEKS. The three month window exists merely to catch the rare person who takes a little longer than six weeks to produce enough antibodies to be detected on the test. If you were positive, you would have tested positive by now.

You are hiv negative. Make sure you use condoms correctly and consistently and you will continue to avoid hiv infection. It really is that simple

Haven't you paid any attention to anything anyone has said to you? YOU DID NOT HAVE A RISK..and you never needed to test in the first place. Take the time and read the lessons that can be found by going and "READING."  You can find the links in the "Welcome" thread.

hiv infection question
« Reply #16 on: July 26, 2009, 04:25:38 PM »
Hello! I posted few years ago about my possible hiv infection with a russian prostitute. My lymph nodes started to hurt and got fever. The pain got so constant that and i went to a total panic( forced treatment in a mental hospital for 3 months). Later the doctors told me that i have a tendency for psychosomatic pain and i thinking every skin rash is a early sign for infection. But once again i got little lonely and went to a russian prostitute more than 24 hours ago. This time I used my own latex condoms and decided to have only a blowjob but it ended up once again with a 1 minute long riding on top of me . After that the jerked me of with her mouth and ejaculated on condom. My question conserns that when i took the condom of what if vaginal fluids on condom ended between my penis foreskin and that could cause infection because i didn't wash it or wiped it. Once again i have started to look red spots or rash in my body and i try really hard not to do it but cant help it.( Already found one  red spot :)  ). my infection fear is abnormally high even though i know now that it's not a flu you can catch just by standing on a subway. I havent felt feverish or lymphnode pain yeat but if i do doctors gave me medicine to increase my rational though and overcome paranoia thinking. Thank you for your reply.

Once again, nothing you did or had done to you was a risk for hiv infection.

You seem to have a history of being ultra paranoid about hiv. We cannot help you with that here.

Keep posting about this no risk incident and you'll be given a time out. If you read the Welcome Thread before posting like you're supposed to, you will have read the following posting guideline:

Quote
Anyone who continues to post excessively, questioning a conclusive negative result or no-risk situation, will be subject to a four week Time Out (a temporary ban from the Forums). If you continue to post excessively after one Time Out, you may be given a second Time Out which will last eight weeks. There is no third Time Out - it is a permanent ban. The purpose of a Time Out is to encourage you to seek the face-to-face help we cannot provide on this forum.

Please consider yourself warned.
