help to much stresss do i have hiv
« on: September 26, 2011, 06:21:01 PM »
About 4 weeks ago I had an encounter with a prostitute, she put the condom on me and gave me oral sex after seconds we started having sex she got scared and mention that the condom was broken so I look at it and took it out and put it back on and it was ok, then we had more sex for about 2 minutes. Then I ask her why she was worried and she told me that she doesnít have the ďTĒ that she can get pregnant. I didnít ejaculated after the encounter I took a shower and clean myself, I forgot to look at the condom but I think it didnít broke.
The problem is that I remember she was smoking marijuana and had Vicks on her mouth.
After 6 days of the encounter I got HIV test and I got negative on all just with thrigliserids at 304 and ASL at 60 (the doctor mention that I got them because I was stress)
I went to a gastroenterologist as I always had problems with the stomach.
At day 6 I started to feel something stuck on my throat and swallowed and swallowed, at day 14 I had lips and dried throat and still the sensation of something stuck. I have too much stress and not even able to sleep just thinking of that time I never do that.
Today is week 4 and I feel good as the doctor put me on a diet and when I start to think on the problem I start to feel that thing on the throat.
Week 4 also I had oatmeal and was really hot, a look alike pimple appeared on my Hard palate, this was around 12pm and by 6 it was not there I only have a small red mark that it looks its diapering.
I am thinking on getting a HIV test on week 6 and then week 12
I read that is really difficult to get HIV from a woman, also I used a condom even do I didnít look at it at the end.
This is the first time I do that, and learned my lesson I have no idea why people do it, this 4 weeks I have been going crazy taking my temperature like 3 times a day and just wondering the internet and going nuts.
I also bought a test online called urasure that is by urine I will get it tomorrow is it worth while using it at 4 weeks.
I donít have fever, or swollen any ware.

Help what do you think.

None of your symptoms are in any way HIV specific.

If the condom had failed it would have been very apparent. When that happens it's not about itty bitty holes as people imagine. No, the whole thing goes and it ends up looking like a hoop with fringe. From what you have written it doesn't sound like that happened.

You can get tested if you want to just for your peace of mind. But I don't see a genuine risk in your incident. If you have troubling symptoms you should be discussing them with your doctor.

You used a condom for intercourse which is exactly what you are supposed to do. I think you are worrying needlessly.

Thank you Andy I see you as someone that has helped allot of people we need more people like this in the world.
I also think I am going crazy because of nothing.
Also I heard that is difficult to get HIV from a woman.
On the throat I think is because of anxiety that I had and also the problem I have from reflux.
Do you know what type of Sour throat do you get. Because what I had never heart while drinking or eating only felt irritated.
Thank you again.
Also if I took off the condom and put it back on its hard to get it right?
You are really nice person for giving yourself time to answer all the questions?
So its really hard for me to have HIV right?
OOO also if you donít ejaculate it is also harder to get HIV is this true?

Ejaculation makes zero difference in your HIV risk if you are a male in a heterosexual situation.

Your risk seems to be close to zero, considering that your sex was protected. And even unprotected sex is considered MUCH lower on the sdcale of risk for a male in a heterosexual situation.

From what you described you had protected sex, therefore you were not at risk for HIV and do not need to test over this incident.

We've already told you that you weren't at risk. You don't seem to be able to accept that. That is the issue and not which test you should be using. There is no need for testing.

If you are having physical symptoms such as a sore shoulder, you should be talking with your doctor. There is nothing even remotely HIV specific about that.

This is not an HIV situation. So cut out the drama on get on with your life.

Chic,

Back and shoulder pain have nothing to do with hiv. As Andy told you, go see your doctor about it. It could be that all the unnecessary stress and tension you're putting yourself through is causing tense muscles and pain. SEE YOUR DOCTOR if it bothers you.

You have not had a risk for hiv infection so any hiv test you take will be negative just like your first one was.

Like Rod I can't help wondering how in the world you are presuming to give a lecture about HIV issues when you have the kind of history here that you do.

How do you plan to be helpful to others when you are so insistent here about worrying when you did not have a risk?

I am going to warn you that if you continue to return here about a completely non-risk situation you are going to find yourself getting a Time Out from this site. Consider yourself warned.

I'm not clear why you would need to use or names. Make sure you are not saying this site is endorsing whatever you are presenting.

No, a pimple on the palate is not an HIV specific symptom.

The Orasure is an approved test. Testing is totally unnecessary for you since you didn't have a risk. Of course I expect you to get a negative result.

Now I am going to give you that 28 day Time Out which you have been warned about several times. You did not have a risk for HIV. Period.

Don't make the mistake of trying to get around the Time Out by creating a new account. We will spot that right off and it will get you banned permanently from this site.

Whether you believe it or not, HIV is not your problem. Cut out the nonsense and get on with your life.
