Hi doctors,

on Jan 6,2014 i had a protected enconter with a prostitute.While saying protected i did use a condom.i did oral & vaginal sex.every time an oral or vaginal activity is over i noted that the condom was placed intact on my penis which rules out the condom slip(since the condom is still placed in my penis)& condom break(since if it breaks the entire condom would be torn down,but the condom was still in tact with my penis).This was the first time iam having sex in life,yes im a virgin.there was lot of pain for me from my side during the anal & vaginal sex.I asked the prostitute she said it was becoz of my large foreskin on the tip of my penis.I have 2 possible risks which i mentioning below:-

1)what if the condom had a Hole in the top.One of my friend told there could come manufacture defects in it and it could a risk.If there was a hole then is there a risk for me.

2)but before intercourse she gave me some breat massage.During that activity she rubbed the tip of my penis in her nipples for some time (without condom).Im just thinking what if somedrop of milk or breast secretions gone throught the urethra of my penis.Can it be a risk???

After few days of my encounter iam experiencing several types of symtoms which i can co relate to HIV or other STD's.They are mentioned below.(this is my 14th day im posting these question)

1)Pain in my penis head(for 7 days after infection now its gone after i drank a lot of water)
2)pain in joints-knees,hips & right chest side(this happened after 3-7 days of exposure...now its gone)
3)feeling tired and extra shiverness(till date im having this from the date of exposure although lately its little less than usual)
4)Dry mouth and shortness of breath in early mornings(it happens in early morning only and goes away after activities and again comes back next morning-From exposure till date im having this)
5)Weight loss- I have reduced 5 KGs in last 2 weeks.(note i havent done any exercise or dieting at all)
6)Dry cough & sore throat-im realy scared now after getting this last symtoms(this came in athe 13th day after exposure)

I also consulted my local clinic they gave me Hiv 1 & 2 test(elisa-P4 antigen test(4th gen))which came back negative for HIV(i took this test on the 12th day after exposure)

Please help me .......let me know what is my situtaion exactly...im realy worried ..Please say what is happening to me. Please doctors tell the truth wats happening to me u ppl are like gods messengers to worried souls like me.....

Romeo,

"1)what if the condom had a Hole in the top.One of my friend told there could come manufacture defects in it and it could a risk.If there was a hole then is there a risk for me."

Your friend is WRONG. The idea of holes at manufacture in condoms is an urban myth put out by religious types who don't like the idea of people having sex while outside marriage or while preventing pregnancy. Broken condoms are VERY obvious and you would have known if yours broke.

"2)but before intercourse she gave me some breat massage.During that activity she rubbed the tip of my penis in her nipples for some time (without condom).Im just thinking what if somedrop of milk or breast secretions gone throught the urethra of my penis.Can it be a risk???"

NO. Hiv positive breast milk is only a danger to tiny babies who rely on breast milk as their sole source of nourishment.

"This was the first time iam having sex in life,yes im a virgin.there was lot of pain for me from my side during the anal & vaginal sex.I asked the prostitute she said it was becoz of my large foreskin on the tip of my penis."

For future reference, you should pull your foreskin completely back while you put the condom on. Doing this has two benefits; it will make wearing a condom more comfortable and pain-free, and it will also make the condom much less likely to break.

You have NOT had a risk and you do NOT need further hiv testing over this specific incident.

If you continue to feel unwell, see a doctor. Whatever is going on is NOT specific to hiv and is NOT being caused by hiv in your case. You do NOT have hiv and you have NOT had a risk.

Here's what you need to know in order to avoid hiv infection:

You need to be using condoms for anal or vaginal intercourse, every time, no exceptions until such time as you are in a securely monogamous relationship where you have both tested for ALL sexually transmitted infections together.

To agree to have unprotected intercourse is to consent to the possibility of being infected with an STI. Sex without a condom lasts only a matter of minutes, but hiv is forever.

Have a look through the condom and lube links in my signature line so you can use condoms with confidence.

ALTHOUGH YOU DO NOT NEED FURTHER HIV TESTING AT THIS TIME, anyone who is sexually active should be having a full sexual health care check-up, 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 check-ups, 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.

Use condoms for anal or vaginal intercourse, correctly and consistently, and you will avoid hiv infection. It really is that simple!

Hi Ann,

Thanks for the quick reply.I have one more doubt.since this is my first sex experience iam not sure about condom breakage.all i can remember is after my anal & vaginal activity,the condom was placed intact with my penis.Is this a safe prospect.Can i be sure that the condom did not break.It was just intact with my penis.That is my only concern now...

Have you not paid attention to anything that you were told? You don't have an HIV concern, you don't need testing and your symptoms have nothing to do with HIV.

There are no shortcuts to HIV testing . Any test given must be confirmed at 3 months .

You did not have a risk and do not need to test over this specific no risk situation so if this is your only concern in the last 3 months then you have already tested HIV negative and do not have HIV .

Go see your doc and find out why you are sick . Its not HIV .

Romeo,

I've deleted the thread you started in the Living With forum to get around having to take out a subscription. It was the second thread we've had to delete from you that you started outside this forum.

You already know you're not permitted to post outside the Am I Infected? - you've said it yourself and you've also been warned about posting outside this forum.

You have left me no choice but to permanently ban you.

You didn't even have a risk and if you cannot bring yourself to believe that or believe your negative results, then perhaps it's time to seek out the help of a mental health therapist to get to the bottom of why you seem to want to be hiv positive so badly.

You do NOT have hiv. Deal with it and get on with your life already. Your crazy insistence that you must be poz when you did NOT have a risk in the first place is far outside the remit of these forums. We cannot help you with your mental health issues here.

Use condoms for anal or vaginal intercourse, correctly and consistently, and you will avoid hiv infection. IT REALLY IS THAT SIMPLE!!!!
