Every moment is like Scary n Hell
« on: October 07, 2012, 10:40:16 AM »
Hi. I live in India. I dont know where to start but for past 6 weeks my life is totally up side down. I have had protected paid sex with around 9 or 10 female sex workers. I have never had a gf in my life so I had to relieve my desire with paid sex. Iam 29 years old. Around a month back I had a severe lung infection that you may call Pluerisy following with high grade fever and cough. I was treated by my family doctor with antibiotics and it almost took 10 days to recover from the infection and fever . Now, Iam ok but not so coz my only worry is Have i got HIV? I have never been ill in my life but since I had those sexual exposure even with condom im scared to death . One exposure was that I didnt have any condom so I refused to penetrate or even go for a blowjob but there was enough rubbing againt each other's body offcourse not gentials and eventually i came between the girl's thighs. I have become so confused whenther I actually used condom or not coz If i got bad health then may be I didnt. By the way all those sexual incident heppened since jan this year untill August first week. I seriously need advice coz I keep going through your forum and it says that any lung ailment is the cause of HIV however my doc said its due to changing season. By the way when I was sick my TLC and Platellets was low. I have always been afraid of HIV that I even prefered to use a condom for blowjob and no licking of vagina but carefull kissing. I have seen your posts and ppl say they got HIV even they had protected sex. Kindly show me some light as Iam not at rest, Iam having sleepless night and I keep checking my body temperature even at my office, Iam afraid I would get sacked from office due to my weird behaviour. Iam reading too much about pluerisy and HIV in google and it just puts me into huge fears. You may call me coward I totally accept coz I dont have courage to go for a test . I keep complaing to GOD that being aware of HIV why would he give me HIV. One thing more whenever I had sex I drank in limit that means I was in mood but not voilent or out of track . I hope you understand me . Thanks

1 more thing I would like to add that recently over past two days I have itchy blister on my lips. Does that mean I have got herpes ? My lips first itch and when I bite them a little they swell and and after sometimes swelling goes away.

The only confirmed risks for the sexual transmission of HIV are unprotected vaginal and anal intercourse. As long as condoms are used properly everytime for those activities you will be well protected against HIV sexually. Condoms provide very effective protection.

Our focus here is strictly on HIV, so for something like a question about herpes you would have to discuss that with your doctor. And the same goes for any symptoms you may have as to what might be causing them. I don't see any risk for HIV in your report.

Other STDs are much easier to acquire than HIV. So if you are sexually active we recommend that at least once a year you have a full panel of tests done for all STDs to make sure you haven't picked up anything else.

At this time I don't see any cause to think HIV is your problem.

Hi Andy Sir,

Thanks for answering my question. However , I wanna assure you that condoms were used in every sexual act no matter if I was drunk. I didnt ever find any condom slip or even weird breakage on them.  Iam not a regular visitor to prostitues. However, I did a lot of kissing like on cheeks and even on lips and tounge to tounge touch but being careful and not intensive. I havent had anal sex but i did kiss the anus and like the sides of anal rings also may be one to two times. So, can I have HIV or other STDs from those dirty activites. I also used a condom for blow job and vaginal intercourse but aprat from it I really kissed n licked all the body including thighs, calves, feet, ears neck,upper back , lower back , knees .

Please tell me if Iam going to die from all this activites. I appreciate ur response . Iam just not able to do anything or sleep . I keep thinking about HIV and other Stds.

Cut the drama, you never had an exposure.

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