Very weird situation. Advice will be much appreciated
« on: January 17, 2014, 04:40:54 PM »
I want to start by thanking all the administrators/moderator of this forum, I have learned so much from reading your posts.

Here is my story.

December 31 at 2am, I have an encounter with a transexual worker. She gave me protected oral and we had protected sex (I was the insertive party throughout). But I noticed when I was penetrating her that the the condom was missing. It must've been ~15-20seconds. The condom was stuck in her ass, and she had to reach in and pull it out.

I freaked out and left. I went to a local clinic and got PEP (Truvada) and got tested for STIs. Two days after the incident, I had white odorless discharges from my penis when I woke up. And my results came back from the testing: HIV and syphilis negative. And chlamydia and gonorrhea positive, which I got treated for.

I called the worker in question and informed her about the results, she freaked out and was in disbelieve. She said she needed to go home and get tested. She eventually got tested about a week after I had informed her and she sent me copy of her results today, which were negative for HIV, chlamydia, and gonorrhea.

I'm really confused because before that night the last time I had sex was 2 months before and a condom was used the entire time. And the only time I have had bareback sex was with my ex-girlfriend which was in 2010.

I have been thinking about this non stop. It's hard to think I was already infected if the symptoms just started two days after I had sex with her. I am confused.

Could it be that she has rectal gonorrhea, which doesn't show up when you do the urine test? This makes no sense.

It makes perfect sense.

Of course rectal chlamydia and/or gonorrhea aren't going to show up on a urine test. You have to have a rectal swab to find rectal chlamydia and/or gonorrhea. Rectal gonorrhea/chlamydia are both most often symptomless, so she probably has no idea she has it.

You need to keep in mind that hiv is MUCH more difficult to transmit than most other STIs. You're on PEP - you are highly unlikely to go on to test hiv positive.

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

Thanks for the reply Ann.

I told her so, but she thinks I'm just paranoid and crazy. I will stay on PEP, and get tested 6 weeks and 3 moths post PEP. The past 3 weeks have been sooo tough for me.

Thanks again.
