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.
This is a second thread I'm posting and not to **** anyone but just to know a couple of things. This is probably my fourth week of exposure, and I have had irregular bowel movements for three weeks. I read that a swollen lymph node would not be identifiable sometimes by an untrained person. I have a small lump (or a pimple I can't make out) which hurts when I touch it right behind my ear. Could this be a symptom for HIV? If not, how can I identify a real swelling? Also, would an antibody test bring out a good result at this point? Or should I wait more? Please help.

Please help!! I hold oral sex with a transexual I used a condom during the oral sex then switched to anal I used lub but didn't change condoms. Anal went on for about 2min or so then i stopped I realized it wasn't my cup thing. The condom look like it didn't break I saw blood on the condom so rushed and took the condom off. I washed up with anti bactiura soap and water and dryed off. 2 days later I felt itching and burning sensation around genitals and it burned when I peed. I went and saw my urologist and did blood work everything can back negative except for HSV 1 he told me ot was tok soon to show HSV 2 or HIV i know i had HSV1 already .He said it could been a reaction do to strees and guilt of the encounter I'm on valtrex now it's been 2 1/2 weeks and in still feeling flu like symptoms. I feel weak and headache a feeling of ill no fever no chills. My question is
1. During oral sex could there have been holes in the condom before going to anal sex?
2. When cleaning myself with soap and water could it have went inside my urethra?
I'm not sure of its my outbreak that causing my symptoms or if its something else. I don't have any bumps or liaisons or anything my lower back hurts every now and then and I think my lymph node in my neck might be swollen. I went and did an oral hiv test on day 18 that came back negative but I know that's too soon. Can any help please I'm really stressed out
