My risk for HIV/AIDS
« on: September 16, 2020, 12:32:21 am »
Hello Everyone !!
Sorry for my English as I am not a Native Speaker .

On dated, 16th December, 2019 I had a sex with High Risk CSW in South Korea.
Firstly, she cleaned my Penis with wet tissue and did a handjob for 20 sec to make  errection and after I was 90% errect the put the condom and did  suck my penis for 1o sec to make more errection. From reading 1000s to post, I m sure that this was not a risk at all for Hiv.
Then we continue to have a protected virgina sex. Acutally I wasent getting fully errected and loose my interest . After like 3 mins when I looked at my penis, the condom had rolled halfway so I immediately pulled it back and changed the posation to doggy and again lastly she was riding. Again reading the 1000s post I came to knew that the head is covered sex becomes protected ) Although, by changing different posation also I wasent really enjoying so I told her to stop and she removed the condom and  she started to do handjob and after 1 min the task was completed . As I am fully aware that, removing the condom and doing handjob by her was also not a risk because hiv cannot live outside the living host and hiv is only transmitted only inside the two human bodies.

We did sex on 16th December, 2019 and exjectly after 3 Months, 16th March, 2020 suddenly I felt like somethings is stuck in my throat which I felt when i sallow my sliva.  I didnt took this seriously but after a week later may be like 24th March 2020, at midnight i feels to burp but it was difficult to burp and after 2 days i started alot of burping like 6-10 times in a hour. Due to lockdown here in my country i was not able to visit doctor so i went to Pharmacy the pharmacy person said this might be acid reflux or Gerd so he have me acid reduction medicine and i took for several weeks but nothing changed. After 3 months of symptoms (July 2020) one day I thought that i may had contracted with Hiv and started learning more about hiv. My panic attacked started afterward. I got neck and shoulder pain, pins and niddle pain, night sweat for 2 days, joint pain. I am petty sure that this symptoms started after i thought I may have contracted hiv and those might be due to stress. I read alot of post and learned about hiv and I myself felt that I have a protected sex and these symptoms are all because of stress but the main concern is today it almost 9 months i had sex and burping is still continued. Lump in throat went away as i controlled alot  of food but burping in every 10 mins. There is a red scratches back of my throat also but it does not hurt.
The main thing I am afraid Is could Condom have broken or got tore back side of the penis head (front part seems intack as i saw while she was removing after sex) because I didnt make a 360 View. Your community always says condom broken is always obvious and it does not get tinny holes or tear, as it fails leaves no doubt.

I am getting mentally ill and i know you dont discuss symptoms but please help me and i request to answer the below quesation one my one.

 1) Are those my symptoms related with HIV (Stuck in throat feeling and burping)
 2) Can Hiv symptoms starts after 3 months and continues for 6 months and more.
 
I am really very worried so pls POZ community I request to read my post for three times and anylisis my risk .

I really appreciatate your time consedering my long message and hope to get the responce .

Thank you

Hiya,

Sorry to hear that you are stressing. I read your post and nothing you mentioned is HIV specific. If you are still feeling unwell work with your healthcare provider to treat whatever is making you sick.

Regading your HIV risk from this encounter, you have already answered this yourself. You had sex with a condom, it did not break during the intercourse, unless you have had other sexual encounters to discuss move on with your life.

Continue to use condoms for any intercourse and test out of standard routine for STI's & HIV at least yearly.

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

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 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

I have addressed this in my post.

1)
Nothing you mentioned is HIV specific. If you are still feeling unwell work with your healthcare provider to treat whatever is making you sick.

2) Symtoms from what risk? Unless you have had other sexual encounters to discuss move on with your life. Most people have no initial symptoms whatsoever or none noticible at least, hence the advice is to continue to use condoms and test out of routine at least yearly.

Jim

You have answered this yourself already, see:

condom broken is always obvious and it does not get tinny holes or tear, as it fails leaves no doubt.

HIV can't transmit through an intact latex or polyurethane condom. If a condom fails during the act of intercourse it's obvious to the insertive partner. There is no reason to be stressing or testing outside of standard routine as long as this obvious issue did not happen.

If this was your only sexual encounter then relax and move on with your life.
