Oral sex and fingering
« on: March 11, 2014, 11:05:32 AM »
Dear everyone,

My story backs to this Christmas night, while I was so drunk and had an unprotected oral sex with an Indonesian sex worker, some vaginal fluid came to my mouth, plus I put my finger to her vagina, but I rinsed my mouth with water soon after that.

9 days later, I was going to get sick, some flue like situation, then it turned into fever and chills. I went to hospital and told the doctor that I'm suspected of dengue or typhoid fever, which are very popular diseases here. My blood test results came back negative for typhoid fever and since there is no dengue fever test kit available here, they just diagnose a suspected patient from the level of platelet in his/her blood. Mine was 135 and the normal range is higher than 150, so he immediately diagnosed me with dengue fever and advised me to take rest at home and drink lots of fluid and fruit juices until you get rid of the virus.

I did more research on dengue fever and found out that most of dengue infected patients have platelet level under 100 and a full body rash will appear on their skin, I didn't have them. Suddenly I became suspected of HIV and from that moment my life turned into a hell shit one!

My illness got worse everyday and while my wife was very close to give birth to our baby and I had two times unprotected intercourse with her after Christmas and before I get sick.

So I was thinking beside I got infected, I made them infected too. You imagine what was going to me! :'(

Normally, a patient with dengue fever should recover from the disease in two weeks, but mine was getting worse everyday. Huge neurological syndromes like panic attacks, fear of death, anxiety, schizophrenic thoughts and behaviors, muscle aches and cramps, growling and burning stomach, joint pain, lose of weight about 8Kg, no appetite at all, diarrhea, sense of vomiting, extreme fatigue, painful neck, swollen and painful glands, nausea, green tongue, sense of something stuck in my throat. So, I went to hospital for an HIV test on 10 days after exposure and the only available choice was ELISA test which came negative as well.

I had done more research about HIV and found out about the concept of Window Period and etc so I repeated the test one month after exposure and came back negative too. All above mentioned syndromes was with me for almost 1 and half month, and slowly got calm while a friend of mine took me to a psychiatrist and he prescribed some SSRI antidepressant and Benzodiazepine in order to relieve my anxiety. I was asking my friend to take me for a PCR RNA test, and he told me according to what you did, it's so low risk and it's almost impossible to catch HIV from oral sex, so you have to take your medicines and wait until 3 months to go for the final ELISA test. I listened to him, since I do consider myself ineligible to decide in this situation because my brain was not working correctly.

Almost one month finished, the rash started to appearing, an integrated bright red rash was appearing and disappearing, plus small pink or red dots like pimples that were very itchy. My hand got full with eczema, I was applying dexamethazone to get rid of itches. I found an small ulcer on my penis and few small one in my mouth. The ulcer on my penis got well very soon, but my mouth ulcers remained until now with thrush in my mouth.

At this moment, my body situation is okay, my glands remained swollen, actually sometimes swollen and sometimes flat. I have neck pain and I'm taking Fluconazole and Acyclovir to get rid of thrush in my mouth. I still have those itchy dots specially in moisture area of my body like genital area.

Now my wife also developed some flu like disease doesn't response to antibiotic therapy and I'm really worry about whole the story.

I have asked a friend of mine in US to buy many OraQuick test and send them to me here. Due many privacy and financial concerns, I don't want to go to hospital, unless there is no more solution. Those test will arrive here next week and I will take one them on 25/March exactly 3 month after exposure to get the final result.

According to above mentioned text, you experienced people, what do you think? Did I get infected or not?

Thanks in advance to all friends who participate in this discussion.

Nothing that you have done in the situations you describe above are risks of HIV transmission.

HIV is unable to reproduce outside its living host (unlike many bacteria or fungi, which may do so under suitable conditions), except under laboratory conditions; therefore, it does not spread or maintain infectiousness outside its host.

HIV is transmitted by;
Unprotected penetrative anal and/or vaginal sex
Sharing works with other IV drug users
Mother to child

Nothing to update, you didn't have a risk of contracting HIV.
