Risk assessment with all symptoms
Sirs
I had a risk 4 weeks ago with a Nigerian CSW (in Nigeria). I paid to have sex with her, it was short time (maximum 1 minute before ejaculations). She felt me cum as she got off (she is top) without asking me; a condom was used but think this may have broke, because of her reaction, i am not sure.

* 1 week after I had bad headache, fever up to 38.5 and aching back. (WBC test low)
* At 10 days fever and headache gone, but side rash and sore throat come for 5 days.
* at 15 days Sore throat goes away (lasted 5-6 days) and low grade fever comes for 3 days (max 38, but always between 37-38)
* Feeling of tiredness continues for 1 extra week and become pain in my elbow joints and some fingers
* Now at 3.5-4 weeks I have penis thrush (or Balantis) and aching knee joints like atheritis - rash still present but very faint - still tiredness

Does this sound like ARS symptoms? - I cannot get test until February, can someone help my anxiety please.
This lady is sure to have HIV (high rate in Nigeria) - I wish I check condom.
Thank you all

Could my penis thrush be caused by Doxycycline? I took 200mg a day by accident for 1 week before continuing 100mg a day for Malaria prevention, could this of caused my penis thrush at 3-4 weeks after  exposure?

I did not look down properly at my penis and then she took it off with tissue. Actually I briefly remember seeing it, but not if the top was there (I was flacid) and it was underneath.

Failed condoms don't come off that easy, You would have known had you had a failure. Your symptoms don't have anything to do with ARS.

Thanks Teak, I do hope you are right; I guess it is just a coincidence; I know my symptoms are similar to that of ARS but 6-7 days is too early to start and then to have staggered symptoms is not common, am I correct?

ARS doesn't come on that quick and they aren't staggered. .

Thanks Teak, you provide a great assistance to people here. I know symptoms do not diagnose HIV, I have just never experienced anything like this.
I also had lymph nodes swelling and rib pain which I didnt mention, but I guess it doesn't change anything.

Thanks for your advice,  I am beginning to come to terms with my apparent lack of risk. I am now pretty sure the CSW would of told me if the condom had broken & also felt it myself (there was not a lot of alcohol involved)

You really are a stalwart of this forum and your sometimes brash but extremely well informed answers should be respected.

Should I still get tested at 3 months for piece of mind or is it unnecessary?
