HI all, thanks for making this forum to help people , you are doing a great job
I am very anexious and since last 16 april and I am feeling that I am die everyday , I was a healthy and good person till that happen.
In last 16 april I encounter with sw , vaginal  sex was protected and I tested both condoms after I finish with water not broke.
We slept for 2 hours (I am afraid if she is injecting me by something while i am sleeping)
Also I shaved about 8 hours before this encounter , she doesnt have secretion,  so I used lube she have
I remember when kiss she sucked my lips violently but It didnt wouned.
All is sound good, till after 3 days I get extermely fatigue, and maliase all over my body and I felt like dying , I have one day diarrhea and gone
After one week I returned better but not as old as I know myself after 3 weeks I had problem in neck which I dont know what is it, doctor supposed it is spasm and at the same time I keep checking and pressing my neck for any lymphnode, at 25 may after 39 days,I went to hiv antibody test it came out non reactive
After 5 days on analgesic no improvment,
Then I returned to doctor with sever pain
After ultrasound shows I have enlargment in lymphnode 108 mm cervical bilateral ,
I started ofloxacin antibiotic for 7 days , then I felt better ,
After stopping antibiotic by oneday, I have sever sore throat which suddenly appeared
At that time I started to have diarrhea for 5 days

You had protected sex and have tested negative for HIV so its safe to move on ...
You didn't have a risk for HIV in anything you did here .

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!
