4 months of anxiety
« on: December 13, 2015, 01:09:23 PM »
Thanks for accepting my request
I'm a girl and 4 months back I had sexual encounter just kissing and oral NO vaginal
my worry is the guy inserted the tip of his penis inside my anus he had a hard time getting in but after using lots of lubricant he managed to get in but NO ejaculation and he went in for about 7 seconds ( only the tip )
what's my risk ?
a month after encounter I had chills flank pain lower back pain
2 months after encounter I had muscle and joint aches
no fever no rash no sever soar throat I just realized a white dot on my tonsil and i took one pill antibiotic and it was gone

I didn't get tested cos of the amount of anxiety that's overtaking my life I lost weight and developed Irritable bowel syndrome I feel my life has come to an end

The brief insertion of his penis was a risk, however the risk was on the low side.  A low level risk does not mean no risk and the only way to know your status is to test.  Testing guidelines are to test at 6 weeks past any incident and then at 12 weeks to confirm the result.  Given the time that has elapsed since this incident, any test you take now would be considered conclusive.  You can read about testing here:  Testing Information.

You cannot tell by symptoms your status as only testing can do that for you.

he didn't ejaculate does that make the risk less ?
and when he inserted there were no breaks or lesions or anything
just his penis inside my anus how does that pose a risk ?

As joe told you already you had a low level risk but a risk all the same you must test for. Dipping episodes almost never result in the transmission of HIV.

The only testing you need is an HIV test given at the appropriate time . Testing guidelines are to test at 6 weeks past any incident and then at 12 weeks to confirm the result.  Given the time that has elapsed since this incident, any test you take now would be considered conclusive.
