Too confused
« on: April 16, 2011, 07:26:34 PM »
I am 24 years old was touring Malaysia in August 2010 and went to massage center, I was virgin till that day, when I got offer for sex, it was very difficult for me to say no as I never had it before,

First she gave me blowjob without condom but she was taking hot water in her mouth I don't know why,

After few mins I got discharged definitely not in her mouth, then after cleaning with tissue I opened a new condom and after wearing it I had virginal sex with her and got discharged in few mins and the removed the condom with tissue and took shower,

I know it was a safe sex and condom was all ok till the end,

I traveled alot in a week and then when I came back home I was feeling very lazy tired for a week and I was thinking I might got HIV but that was because of too much travelling and it was just a doubt,

then after 2 months I got flu and I thought the same again but it was just a doubt too because so many people were getting flu because of change in weather,

I spend atleast 10hrs on computer and sit on chair because of which my back has started hurting from last 20 days the pain is less and I feel it usually when I bend my upper body and from last 4 days my left knee is hurting badly that I was not even able to band properly, the pain in knee bone is like when you get hurt by hitting it but I have not hitted it, atleast I don't remember,

this can be because of so many other reasons, I am not sure its psychological problem or what but I am scared if I am infected with HIV, I am not sure should I go for a test or not?

When I think of going for a test I feel if incase it will come positive the life will become very bad because I will not be able to tell my family or anyone and when I think of not going for test I feel if in future I will get sick I will again think of HIV,

Please suggest me something, m really very confused and tensed.

Net, nothing you are reporting of your sexual activities would have put you at risk for HIV. You wore a condom for intercourse which is exactly what you are supposed to do. They provide very effective protection against HIV transmission.

Getting a blowjob is one of the most common of sexual activities. In the entire history of the epidemic there has never been even one confirmed case of transmission of HIV in that manner.

You are worrying needlessly about HIV. Whatever is causing your symptoms has nothing to do with HIV. If they persist you should discuss them with your doctor. There is no need for HIV testing nor for further concern on your part.

Use a condom everytime for vaginal and anal intercourse and you will be well protected against HIV.

It seems like you are just at the beginning of becoming sexually active. We advise everyone who is sexually active to at least once a year have a full STD panel done. Other STDs are much easier than HIV to acquire.
