Is odor in urine HIV related?
Hello, I have already talked to one of the doctors in the expert forum and I understand I am at very little risk, but I just have one more question, and I already asked quite a few to the doctor so I don't know if he will answer this one.
Here is my exposure (almost 2 weeks ago):
I engaged in sexual activity with a man of unknown status.  I know that he has been with a lot of women.  According to him, a couple different ones each month.  I regret it terribly and am having extreme anxiety over it.  The contact we had was: 1. I used my tongue only on the shaft of his penis, but I probably got some precum in my mouth; 2. I performed manual sex on him, he came in my hands (a little on my chest) - I later realized I had a small day-old cut on that hand - that I'm positive came into contact with semen; 3. He fingered me and might have had precum on his hand; 4. His semen may have come into contact with my nipples.
Two days later I got a sore throat. It was only consistently sore for one day, but has been lingering somewhat for over a week.  I became congested, got a runny nose, and coughed up some mucus for a few days.  I also have been having some minor pains in my eyes and groin.
My last question I hope someone can help me out on: When I was with the guy I noticed his crotch area had a certain odor - I wouldn't call it bad or concerning, I just assumed it was sweat.  I am now smelling that same odor on myself in my underwear.  It could just be urine/sweat, and I wasn't paying attention before but am now just hyper-aware of everything.  But it is the same smell he had.  Does HIV give a distinct smell to urine?

Thank you for any help.

transmission takes place when a PENIS IS INSIDE a vagina / anus.  nothing that you've described put you at risk for contracting hiv...NOTHING ! ! !

Thank you for your responses. I really appreciate it! I know that I haven't had much risk. I am just angry at myself for letting this happen and I am having a hard time moving forward.

Thank you for acknowledging that your problem is likely due to anxiety rather than an actual exposure - that is a good step!    If you would like to be referred to our anxiety forum, please let us know... otherwise, we're  done here in this forum since this is about HIV risk.
