Major Anxiety, Please Help!!!
« on: December 23, 2012, 12:30:18 AM »
Okay, So I've started having sex not too long ago, I'm Nineteen years old.

First Encounter: Guy on Grindr, Gave him a Blowjob for a few Minutes and then He topped me til he came in Me (WITH A CONDOM). Condom did not look like it broke, and didn't feel a breakage.

Second Encounter: Two Guys, One was Hiv+. I gave head to the HIV+ one for a minute or two then he Rimmed and played with my ass for a while using toys.He Topped me for a while, I was giving head to his boyfriend As he did that. He came in me (With Condom On) No Condom Breakage (As Far as I Know)

Third Encounter: Same guys as the second encounter but I gave Head to the HIV+ Guy much Longer, and He was more forceful. Topped me for a minute, then we stopped (Condom, No Breakage)

All encounters were with Condoms, but I pick at my lips a lot and they get chapped, I don't know If that affects anything. I also bite the inside of my cheek from time to time, but I don't remember doing that around the time.

I Usually wouldn't be Freaking, but two weeks after the encounter with the HIV+ guy I started feeling ARS symptoms. Sore body, Fatigue, Loss of Appetite for awhile and then I developed a rash on my back. I'm feeling like a Neurotic.

Sounds like you have done the smart thing and used condoms for penetrative sex. THAT is all you need to do in order to prevent HIV infection.

Of course, every sexually active person ought to get a complete STD screening twice a year, including (or course) an HIV test.

"Many people, especially in the gay community, turn to oral sex as a safer alternative in the age of AIDS. And with HIV rates rising, people need to remember that oral sex is safer sex. It's a reasonable alternative."

So You Don't think I have it at all? Been sick with the Flu lately, what If its Brought on by HIV reducing my ability to fight it off? Sorry If I'm Acting Stupid, I Just get sick with Anxiety. I Mean I Did have Sex With a HIV+ Person and Did Unprotected ORAL sex and Protected Anal Sex, There's No Risk?

You are correct. There is no risk. Did you get a flu shot this year?  Of course, even if you did, strains not protected by the shot can seep through. I am still recovering from a nasty head cold myself.

You don't have HIV. You had no risk for HIV. If you body was compromised and unable to fight off a flu or cold, you wouldn't have symptoms at all - because the symptoms are your body's defense against the pathogen, not the pathogen itself. Sounds like you have a really active and robust immune system. Protect it by wearing a condom for penetrative anal and vaginal sex and you will avoid HIV.

It's really that simple.

None of the details you are throwing into the mix change the bottom line which is: no risk.

Really.

Get on with your life.
