i was potentially exposed to hiv 2 weeks ago when i had protected sex with a prostitute whom i have no idea about her hiv status. i regretted it as soon as i realised what i had done. i have been googling and it has made my situation worse. I am having little bumps like rashes on my body, headaches, tiredness, itchy throat, night sweats, tensed musles. i am scared these are all symptoms of hiv. I am so stessed out i can't concentrate on anything, i have started day dreaming and pulling away from people. please i need to know my risk situation and whether these symptoms necessarily indicate hiv? Any one with a similar situation?
I have experienced this ONCE - had sex with a stranger, and worried and worried about STD's until I finally broke down and went to be tested. Results: clean as a whistle! :) I was and am very happy about this, and will never do it again. I will take the time to get to know someone, be friends for awhile, and see where that goes.
Thats good to know, also i bought a strip today and did a test and the results were negative. Its only been 15 days after the incident and i started seeing symptoms 3 days ago. Is there a chance the virus is not detectable yet?
