AM i EXPOSED :(((((
« on: May 27, 2014, 01:55:33 PM »
Hello everyone that is readying my story. First off I would like to say I'm a 19 year old male who made the biggest mistake of his life. I'm happily in a relationship with my girlfriend who is still a virgin and I was at the time until me and my best friend were bored at his house. Then we visited a escort website on April 18th and called a girl to come over. We didn't think she would come at all. She came about 30 mins after the call, so I opened the door she was very sweet and cute about 23 years old and has a son supposedly. We talked about stuff, mostly her how she gets check every 3 months and she does it to pay off school and basically lives a double life. So she was ready to go, so we all went upstairs went to the room and my best friend and I already bought condoms from the store. So she said let's have a threesome, it happened. She was performing oral sex on me for about 5 mins and he was doing it doggy style. When we switched I went in for about 3 mins max I felt awkward, So I stopped I ejaculated in the condom. I went too the bathroom I don't really remember seeing my semen inside the condom but I'm pretty sure I did and I twisted the condom and flushed it down the toilet. I went home and couldn't sleep because I thought i got her pregnant and caught a sti. Then I went to get tested for HIV about 2 weeks after may 5th and came back negative but then found out I had to wait 3 months. I went too the doctor and got tested for sti's all came back negative. I keep googling stuff and I scare my self to death and I have convinced my self I have something. I don't know if my mind is playing games with me thinking I have symptoms or what. After the encounter I caught a rash maybe heat rash on my neck and arms then I have a bump that hurts turned black and red after. It was in the middle of my ribcage and now its gone. My girlfriend and I are doing stuff and one night we were doing stuff and i started to rub my penis on her vagina and I ejaculated all over her then that same night she caught a fever and stomach was killing her so I was convinced I gave her something. Me and my girlfriend do everything but vaginal sex, so I stopped everything because I keep thinking I gave her something. If I did I would kill my self because I love her more than my own life. I don't know what too do anymore. Please help!!

You did not have a risk for HIV . Condoms are designed to leave no doubt when that fail and you would have known it the instant you saw it if it had broke ... so no risk .

Here's what you need to know in order to avoid hiv infection:

You need to be using condoms for anal or vaginal intercourse, every time, no exceptions until such time as you are in a securely monogamous relationship where you have both tested for ALL sexually transmitted infections together.

To agree to have unprotected intercourse is to consent to the possibility of being infected with an STI. Sex without a condom lasts only a matter of minutes, but hiv is forever.

Have a look through the condom and lube links in my signature line so you can use condoms with confidence.

Although you did not have a risk and do not need to test for this specific incident , anyone who is sexually active should be having a full sexual health care check-up, including but not limited to hiv testing, at least once a year and more often if unprotected intercourse occurs.

If you aren't already having regular, routine check-ups, now is the time to start. As long as you make sure condoms are being used for intercourse, you can fully expect your routine hiv tests to return with negative results.

Don't forget to always get checked for all the other sexually transmitted infections as well, because they are MUCH easier to transmit than hiv. Some of the other STIs can be present with no obvious symptoms, so the only way to know for sure is to test.

Use condoms for anal or vaginal intercourse, correctly and consistently, and you will avoid hiv infection. It really is that simple!
