Any HIV Risk?
« on: May 19, 2009, 06:40:10 AM »
Hello,I am sorry for my bad manners and my bad english ::)
I had sex with an unknown girl with a condom.It was slipping (not whole,just of the base of the penis) and i put it back into place for 2-3 times.When I came (outside of her vagina) I removed the condom.I at the time had some minor cuts to my fingers,plus very short nails. (I eat them constantly) I washed my hands but now I wish I had washed them harder,more consistenly,and with more,more soap.
I have developed some symptoms of flu (13-18 days after),such as mild diarrhea,mild fever (37.3 right now,18 days),mildly swollen tonsils,2-hour long migraines,and a liitlle mucus.(I hope that's not any fungus,I mean nose fluids :P)
I am giving the most important exams of my life (like SAT's,they are called National and they give a University pass),and I am not anxious about my exams,but about getting HIV virus! :-\
edit:I also had high sensitivity next to my chest,under the armpit,on the side of the body

Could you tell me what should I expect,and what are the risks?
Thanks-a-lot

At no time were you at risk of contracting HIV.

The important thing is that the head of your penis remained covered throughout this incident. Keep on using a condom everytime you have intercourse. Then you are well protected and it won't matter if your partner is HIV+.

Slippage does happen sometimes, but you might also check to see that you are using the correct size condom to fit your penis.

This time there's no need for further concern on your part or for testing.

No matter what types of spins you want to put on it, you did NOT have a risk.
