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 am a 28 year old male
I had an anal encounter with a sex worker some 11-12 months ago. I used a condom, After some 10 mins, she asked me to stop saying it is finished. I am not sure what it meant. Did it mean time up for the money or something else. I do not know. I did not notice any strange thing on my penis like blood.. I had ejaculated inside the condom only very little and the rest i passed out during immediate urination. I then cleaned myself properly and threw away the condom.
I am not sure, if the partner had HIV. She seemed normal. I did not have any further sexual activity.
I was perfectly normal all the time afterwards, until I had chicken pox some 8 months later. I never had chicken pox in my lifetime before and I recovered from it using Aciclovir drugs in the normal 2-3 week period without any complications.
now in march, I had mild flu like symptoms and the doctor said after some simple blood testing, it oculd be a common viral infection.
There was no other major symptom.
Since then I am worried again to have possibly got HIV. the force of guilt is too much. I started having other troubles like headaches, hand trembling and weakness, frequent urination and muscle pain sporadically.
Could this all be anxiety or am I at risk..>>
I went to a doctor and he examined my body completely. He said, i recovered well from chicken pox without complications, overall healthy body etc. There were no blood tests done and he said chicken pox virus could have some after effect like this in some people.
nothing to worry.
you used protection which was a very sensible action to take.hence you have no risk of hiv infection at all.as for your symptoms it sounds very much like stress to me.its a fact that stress can effect the immune system.
