initial symptoms and so much worries
« on: December 04, 2019, 01:11:25 pm »
Hello,
Thanks for help in advance.

 I am a bisexual guy , In July , I had several sexual experiences with 3 sex workers (not at same time).
two of them were wanking until came ( handjob) and the other was some of inserting (dildo in me until I came and do not remember if she put a candom on it or no ) I was not sure if it is clean or not also.also she fingered me.  so I had antibodies test after two weeks of the experience and I did the same to be sure after one month it was negative too.
 
Month ago I had also three experiences one was similar ( sex worker inserts a strap on (Dildo) in my anus she was using candom this time but after taking a break she removed it and starting again when i asked her she told me she replaced it with a new one but I'm not sure of that ) finally she handjobed me till I came. while the second time was with russian sex worker she gave ma a massage, kissing too , I kissed her vagnia and it was wet after she made  the handjob I used a towel she gave to me.

last one were from 2 weeks ago , it was light playing "kissing maybe deep and playing with tongues", nipple sucking i gave to her ) and I came on her chest while my penis was between her chest.

I'm now suffering from a fever my body temperature is 37.6 C degree, sore throat and light cough but no skin or body rash , I was telling myself it maybe a fever because we are in December and winter is coming but I  my mind play tricks and prevent me to act normal so Im very worried.

my question if those of I mentioned above is a hiv concern .
Sorry for long message and my bad english , I'm 27 years old guy.

Hiya

What you posted is not an HIV concern, if this was the only sexual activities/contact you had since May 2019 then HIV is not an issue.

I hope you feel better soon but instead of stressing about it see your local doctor and treat whatever is making you feel unwell.

Here's what you need to know in order to avoid HIV infection:
Use condoms for anal or vaginal intercourse, correctly and consistently, every time, no exceptions. Consider starting PrEP going forward as an additional layer of protection against HIV

Keep in mind that some sexual practices which may be described as safe in terms of HIV transmission might still pose a risk for transmission of other easier to transmit STI's, so please do get fully tested regularly and at least yearly for all STI's including but not limited to HIV and test more frequently if unprotected intercourse occurs

Also note that it is possible to have an STI and show no signs or symptoms and the only way of knowing is by testing.

Kind regards

Jim

What you posted was no HIV risk, so HIV is not an issue and there is no need to run out and test unless something else has happened since May.

As said I hope you feel better soon but instead of stressing about it see your local doctor and treat whatever is making you feel unwell.

Thanks for replying again!

Since I Can't remember if since May or before,

There is one girl I used to do practices with her but no intercourse , these practices was about licking her vagina (maybe she came I do not know) , and she was using a dildo, fingering me too but with no condom. most of those activities are before doing the tests and 2 times after the test.

also do you mean by a local doctor a normal doctor , in other words should I state this activities while I explain the symptoms ?

Just tell the doctor you are feeling unwell, stop overthinking things
