Privacy Warning:  Please realize that these forums are open to all, and are fully searchable via Google and other search engines.

All who responded, thanks for your time. You put my mind at easy until my wife developed a cold and a dry cough, now I am scared I gave her something.

And nothing has changed. The fact that your wife has developed a cold means that she's, well, developed a cold. It has nothing to do with you copping hummers off other men.

I've no doubt you feel guilty -- but guilt ain't HIV, cowboy.

Symptoms or the lack of symptoms mean absolutely nothing when it comes to hiv infection. We don't discuss symptoms here for that reason. We do discuss risk factors and according to your thread in the other forum, you are worried about getting a blowjob. 

Getting a blowjob is not a risk for hiv infection, no matter what sort of spin you want to put on it. You didn't have a risk.

Please see your doctor if your symptoms continue to trouble you. They have nothing to do with hiv - how could they when you didn't have a risk?

Please read through the Welcome thread at the top of this forum.

HIV is certainly character-building. It's made me see all of the shallow things we cling to, like ego and vanity. Of course, I'd rather have a few more T-cells and a little less character. Randy Shilts

I read your first post describing how your intercourse was. I firmly believe that all is in your mind and your test will be 100% negative. Deal with your guilt of cheating your wife; HIV is out of this.
Good luck
