Whatever your symptoms are, are not caused by HIV. You had protected sex and didn't have a risk. If your symptoms concern you see your doctor.

Hi,
Thanks for such a quick reply.

But i already visited doctor ,For this they just give antibiotics or pain killer considering this as viral infection.
I am afraid to disclose my fear of HIV to doctor hence done himogram test basing that doctor said i just had some viral nothing else.

but my knee joint and heel pain occured after i had this incident and still persist.
 
I am worried :((

There is nothing in anyway HIV-specific about your symptoms. That's not surprising since you didn't do anything that put you at risk for HIV. You used condoms. They provide very effective protection no matter what the status is of your sexual partners.

You need to speak frankly with your doctor so that he/she can make a proper diagnosis. Whatever is going on has nothing to do with HIV. Period.

You don't need testing. You did not have a risk.

I agree with Rod that you are worrying unnecessarily.

You and your wife-to-be ought to get tested together. We recommend that every couple do that so they know their accurate status. I expect you to test negative if you decide to do that.
