Am I getting ARS? Please help me.
« on: January 17, 2010, 03:25:31 AM »
please help me

I had  sexwith Chinese sex worker in Bhaharain 4 weeks ago and exposes follows.
1) I received oral  sex without condoms, but she stopped before pre-cum.
2) I inserted my finger inside her virginal and I felt her virginal fluid in my finger.
3) After that I involved sex with double condoms.
4) Finally I used my hand for smoking before hand wash.
5) When I washed my hand realized some injuries between my finger nail and mussels.

What is my risk? Really I am afraid and I couldn't sleep, eat and concentrate my work.

24Hrs I am thinking about HIV and going to my life end.

The following symptoms I was feeling.

1) The second week I felt rash and my eye is pain.
2) Pain in urinal path. It was only two days after that no pain. (After the above symptoms I started smoking heavily)
3) Sore throat and pain in my mouth.
4) Mild headache.
5) Swollen gland in lymph nodes from last two days.
6) I feel very hungry but couldn't eat.
7) No fever and cold.
* every night i woke up early morning 2 am automatically, because my body burning in cold weather also, i don't know what happening in my body.

The above symptoms cured without treatment.

Now i am feeling throat pain and urinal path pain.

my questions is,

1)what is my risk?

2)when i was hand my hand very hardly that's why opened between my finger nail and mussels (blood was feeding very small).regarding the above activity does hiv transmit this way?

3)Am i getting ARS?

Your honorable reply is highly appreciated.

mumu,

1. Getting a blowjob is not a risk for hiv infection. Not one person has ever been infected this way and you won't be the first.

2. Fingering is not a risk for hiv infection. Not one person has ever been infected this way and you won't be the first.

3. Protected intercourse is just that - protected. Condoms have been proven to prevent hiv infection. However, you need to stop using two at a time as that can make them break. Yours did not break - if they had, you would have noticed and mentioned it.

4. No hiv risk.

5. Again, fingering is not a risk. Not even if you have small cuts or whatever on your fingers.

As for your symptoms, see a doctor. We don't discuss symptoms here.

You have not had a risk and you do not need to test over this specific situation. Keep using condoms for anal or vaginal intercourse, correctly and consistently, and you will avoid hiv infection. It really is that simple! Read through all three condom and lube links in my signature line so you can use them with confidence.

Between now and the end of your life many, many years from now you are likely at different times to have bodily things happening. That doesn't mean they have anything to do with HIV. With your current ones you are misinterpreting them to mean HIV. As Ann has explained you did not have a risk. Period.

If anything continues that is of concern to you symptomatically then discuss that with your doctor. This stuff has nothing to do with HIV. Get on with your life. Period.

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.

mumu,

If you feel unwell, see a doctor. You have not been at risk for hiv. Nothing you are experiencing is remotely hiv related.

YOU HAVE NOT BEEN AT RISK FOR HIV INFECTION.

Continue to post about this NO RISK incident and you WILL be given that time out Rodney warned you about.

You are allowing your anxiety to overcome your good sense. You have been told specifically that you didn't do anything to put you at risk for HIV transmission. Period.

There is no need for testing nor for further concern on  your part. I can't make it any clearer than that.

You've been warned about coming back repeatedly over a non-risk incident. If you continue to do it the next move is for you to receive a 28 day Time Out from the site.

Now, stop this drama and get on with your life.
