If you believe you have been exposed to HIV and want help to judge your risk, would like advice about HIV testing, or have questions about the effectiveness of condoms or risks associated with specific sexual practices, this is the site for you.
I originally posted on the STD forum but I wanted to ask a follow up on this forum as I have recently developed symptoms consistent with HIV.
It started as a sore throat yesterday and is now a full blown fever. The sore throat remains as well as aches and pains particualry in my back although my whole body is aches and i have the shakes and shivers. I also have stomach pains. Moreover I have developed a rash on my back.
I am really beside myself with this and my mental health is deteriorating. I am frequently breaking down in the bathroom and am gripped with fear of losing my wife and kids, destroying our family and my lives ones lives.
Four weeks ago, I was on a bachelor party and stupidly had an alcohol fuelled threesome with 2 prostitutes. This was in a legal European brothel that seemly offered sex on an industrial scale so I am sure these were two very high risk people.
I had sexual intercourse with both girls and wore a condom throughout. Also in an alcohol induced moment of madness, I performed unprotected oral sex on one of the girls including rimming.
I struggle to explain my behaviour except to say that I have a long standing problem with alcohol that causes me to make very poor decisions an I found myself in a dangerous environment and made a very poor decision.
I feel a sense if deep shame, this is the first time I have had sex with prostitutes and the first time I have had sex outside of marriage.
Due to work commitments I had planned to go for a full STD check at the beginning of June. However these new symptoms have me a nervous and emotional wreck and I really have to know now (if possible) if I have a serious STD such as HIV. I cannot look my kids in the eye without feeling like I'm going to lose them and the damage I may have done to their lives.
If I were to get tested this week how accurate would the results be in terms of
HIV? I have read that 4 weeks is too soon?
I have also read that there are new more accurate tests but as I like in the UK and will be using the NHS I assume their testing methods will be the traditional methods rather than a new fancy next gen test.
I'm sorry to go on and on but I am in a dark dark place right now.
You are absolutely right and I apologise if the wording of the post caused offence. I fully acknowledge that it was my own choices that put me in this position.
Do you have any comment with regard to the accuracy of HIV test after 4 weeks? Or any other comment on my symptoms. The rash on my back is worsening and I still have a fever, sore throat and aches and pains.
