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.
around 4 weeks ago I had a sexual encounter where by I fingered a woman. I later found out she had sex with 6 different partners and I do not know her HIV status.
Last week I had Flu like symptoms and what I thought was tonsillitis due to red tonsils and severe pain when swallowing. Thinking about it now I am severely worried that I have contracted HIV. Although my uncle also had tonsillitis so possibly could of got it off him even though we started feeling unwell at a similar time.
I dont think I had any major cuts on my hands but im worried i might have picked at a spot or something after (im not sure that I did and I definitely didn't straight after but im just worried I have to bring on the flu like symptoms)
I know rates of HIV in the UK are low, but im a severe hypercondriac. Im a 18 year old male and a virgin, what are the chances that I have HIV?
