anxious guy
« on: July 15, 2012, 09:36:23 PM »
Hi there! First of all I would like to thank you guys for answering all the queries of anxious people like me. My story is this: last February or early March, I was involved in unprotected sex(?) with a bar girl here in the Philippines. I was so drunk that time and I dont know what exactly happened however, she was on top of me and tried to insert my penis in her vagina but my penis wasnt erected maybe because of being drunk so She was on top of me and started to rubbed her vagina in my penis. What I can remember is that there are lot of vaginal fluids coming of her and I think she somehow "slid"my penis in her(maybe like for 5 seconds)(sorry I really cant remember if i went in her) my problem is that what if I inserted my un-erected penis in her and got the virus? I have braces in my teeth and we did french kissing. she was very rough when she was on top of me and I ejaculated after(outside her vagina). I was tested negative after 7-8 weeks or 9-10 weeks for HIV and Negative for syphilis/UTI as well. For symptoms I had rashes in the sole of my palms and toes (more like eczema) and my finger were itchy. I even had 1 night of chills but not that "strong" and every morning for a week, my bowel is loose. I also experience malaise and tiredness and stuff. I also have pain in the urethra when im peeing and I found yellow drops of stains in my underwear at times. I sometimes feel to urinate at night but there are no or little pee that comes out.(although I know that we cant base HIV thru symptoms alone) I am very worried,please help. Thanks!

note: I did not experience the symptoms all at the same time except for slight pain when urinating and yellow drops of pus(not the typical discharge) that stain my underwear.

For HIV transmission to take place it requires unprotected "penetrative" anal or vaginal sex. HIV is not transmittied by rubbing and grinding.

Thanks RapiRod!

What do you think of my symptoms? could it be like other STIs like Chlamydia or Clap? I am afraid to have a re-testing for HIV because of worrying that the results will come out positive. if ever I inserted my half or 1/4 erected penis on her,what are the odds of acquiring the virus?

Thanks for your help and TIA for others who will comment on this thread.

Thanks JK!

Im in so much anxiety for the past 4 months and I don know what to do.

Sorry for asking this again: What if she "slid"my penis in her vagina during the rubbing and grinding? but my penis was not 100% erected i guess so because i was so drunk at that time. Please enlighten me with this. very nervous man here.

There is nothing in anyway HIV specific about your symptoms. If they persist you should discuss them with your doctor.

There's a very simple solution to your concerns about HIV. From what you have described I think it's unlikely that you had even brief actual insertion with the woman, but since you are uncertain as to what actually happened, just get tested again. It's strictly for your peace of mind if you do it, because with your previous negative result I don't see you getting anything other than another negative result.

In the future you need to avoid mixing having casual sex with excessive drinking. As you have learned it clouds the mind and leaves you open to careless behavior.

I don't see yours as an HIV situation.

Let say a person experienced "symptoms"of hiv like flu like symptoms, white tongue,diarrhea every morning for a week, Itchy body,Itchy palms and soles and foul smelling urine and had yellow pus like stains (not the typical discharge though) will that person test positive after 6 weeks of experiencing all of the symptoms above? to put the question in a lay man's term, after experiencing ARS, will the person test positive? Thanks!

Symptoms mean nothing as regards HIV infection.

This site is for risk assessment.

Your risk has been assessed. As in, you have been told you have not been at risk for HIV.

Stop with the what ifs and making this situation more complicated than it needs to be.

You didn't have a risk. Go ahead and get tested if you must for your peace of mind just to collect the inevitable negative result.

I can tell you now that we are not going to indulge you in more back and forths about a non-risk situation. If you continue to come back here you are going to find yourself getting a Time Out from the site.

Consider yourself warned. HIV is not your problem.

The above are not symptoms of hiv. They can be, however, symptoms of other STIs. Go see a doctor.

Thanks guys. Maybe this is just guilt of having an affair with another woman. Ann, I am enlightened that the symptoms I experienced was not related to hiv however, let say THAT symptoms I experienced are hiv related, will the test detect it after 6 weeks of experiencing all the symptoms?  sorry if I made scratch your heads...

anxious,

The symptoms of seroconversion that some (not all) people experience are not due to the virus itself. They are due to the process the body goes through while producing antibodies. So yes, if your symptoms had anything to do with hiv, you would have tested positive six weeks after the symptoms.

You did not have a risk for hiv infection, remember?

However, the rubbing you engaged in put you at risk for other, much more easily transmitted STIs. Go see a doctor.
