Anxiety and Worriedness taking my Life
« on: February 24, 2013, 07:25:21 AM »
Dear Beloved,
On Jan 30, 2013 I had a protected sex with a call girl in a hotel in vietnam. I was drunk on that day. She put on a condom on me and we started. After one minute i pulled my penis out and ejaculated in the condom itself. I dont which type of condom it was, but i couldn;t feel anything when it was inside. Now i was very much worried whether the right type of condom was used or not. I started reading symptoms in net and going crazy. I didn't have any noticeable symptoms but seems like i'm anticipating them every second of my life. Im continously checking for if there are any swollen lymph nodes. Im scared to death after finding some lymph nodes of pea size in my armpit. It may be due to my constant poking and checking.My life became miserable. Sometime i doubt, if there are some unseen holes on the condom and may be i was exposed to her vaginal fluids. Im not having proper sleep for last 15 days and not eating properly. I didn't check the condom after the play. I was worried and tensed every moment. What should i do ? Kindly advice.

You had protected sex. You did not have an exposure.

Hi Beloved . It seems from your description of the encounter you had that it was indeed protected sex with a condom . Sex workers use them to protect themselves and wouldn't want to to use condoms that were of the wrong kind or defective . I wouldn't think you need to test over this incident specifically because it was protected intercourse . Its useless to poke and prod your body looking for signs and symptoms of HIV , the only way to detect HIV is to test .

Anyone who is sexually active should be having a full sexual health care checkup, including but not limited to HIV testing, at least once a year and more often if unprotected intercourse occurs.

If you aren't already having regular, routine checkups, now is the time to start. As long as you make sure condoms are being used for intercourse, you can fully expect your routine HIV tests to return with negative results.

Don't forget to always get checked for all the other sexually transmitted infections as well, because they are MUCH easier to transmit than HIV. Some of the other STIs can be present with no obvious symptoms, so the only way to know for sure is to test.
