in January 9, i had sex with a prostitute using a condom, since it was my firts time having sex, i eyaculated in less than 2 minutes, but i keep having sex with semen in my condom for i believe 30 to 40 seconds, how risky was that?? i know that i have to change my condom after a eyaculation but i didnt knew at that time, but i'm too worried since i don't know how risky that was since it was only 40 seconds.

2) After 1 week from this encounter i experienced a very low fever i believe it was 37,70 C 38 C at most, this fever lasted for about 2 to 3 days and it was only during 6 pm to 9 pm.

3) After 4 weeks, i got a small patch of lil red dots in my left collarbone it was just 1 patch the size of a coin, it was just one patch. I had searched hiv rashes on the internet and they are all over the chest, they are very big from the photos i had looked, they are spreaded in the entire chest.

4) I was very weak since january 9 to i believe april, i wasn't sleeping well, i only slept for like 5 hours every day, and spended all the day worried to death and very nervous. but i wasn't too weak either i was able to do 50 push ups every night so i could get tired and  get some sleep, becasue i was too worried and nervous.

pls tell me how risky was my situation, because i had serached the chances of getting hiv from insertive vaginal sex and they are very low, but if the person is in the acute phase the chances are more higher. pls help me i'm worried to death.

Protected intercourse is not a risk for HIV infection and an intact condom means no risk.  You did not have a risk and it does not matter that you used the condom after ejaculation.  As long as the condom was intact, it was not a risk and you have no need to test over this incident.

If you have never had a HIV test, now is the time to start.  If you are sexually active, you should have an annual checkup that tests for HIV and STIs.  It's the right thing to do as a responsible sexual adult.
