Author Topic: Activity with a stripper and now with severe Seroconversion symptoms  (Read 2194 times)

Friday night (Saturday morning) I stupidly went into the back room with a stripper where I proceeded to finger her vagina and anus, and I did lick my finger for added lubrication once or twice. Then I proceeded to lick the outside of her ass for a second or two - it was fully cleaned out. She never touched me and we did not have sex.

Normally Iíd consider this low risk but on Sunday or Monday (2-3 days later) I developed a sore throat bad enough to warrant a Covid test. Two days after that the fever started that I havenít been able to shake for 4 days. The tonsillitis has gotten so bad I canít eat anything but Jello. Iím absolutely freaking out and assuming that I have HIV. Can someone please help me? Is 2-3 days after exposure absolutely impossible for seroconversion to start? My anxiety is off the charts.

No HIV risk to you whatsoever.

Nothing to do with HIV from fingering or licking the sex workers ass. See your healthcare provider and treat whatever is making you feel unwell and I hope you feel better soon.

Here's what you need to know to reduce your HIV risks:
Use condoms for anal or vaginal intercourse correctly and consistently, with no exceptions. Consider talking to your healthcare provider about PrEP as an additional layer of protection against HIV

Keep in mind that some sexual practices described as safe in terms of acquiring HIV still pose a risk for other easier-acquired STIs. So please do get tested at least yearly for STIs, including but not limited to HIV, and more frequently if condomless intercourse occurs.

Also, note that it is possible to have an STI and show no signs or symptoms; testing is the only way to know.

Kind regards

Jim

Thanks for the reply. My only concern is the antibiotics I was prescribed are not working and this doesnít seem to be getting better. Very consistent with ARS. Also, wouldnít there be a theoretical chance of I was sucking my finger after fingering, if I had abrasions? Iíll be tested soon.

You did not acquire HIV from the activities mentioned here and whatever is making you feel unwell has nothing to do with HIV from those activities.

Use condoms for any intercourse, no exceptions. Consider talking to your healthcare provider about PrEP as an additional layer of HIV prevention and as you are sexually active get an HIV & STI screening yearly out of standard routine.

Please don't post about this again, thank you.

Although I was advised here I didnít have a risk, I got an 8.5 week test that Iím awwii g results for. However I also have covid, or so I think. My whole family got sick but none tested + for Covid, but I did. Weird right? Is it possible the Covid test is picking up HIV? Iím freaking out.

No, not weird and the covid test isn't detecting HIV from the activities mentioned here.

If you post again about this no HIV risk situation it will result in a ban from the forums out of kindness to encourage you to engage in professional mental health support to assist you with these fears.
