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.
Hello, any help, guidance, or advice would be much appreciated.
About 7 weeks ago I had an encounter with a stripper who gave me a "handjob". She used her saliva as lubricant to touch her vagina, and also spit directly on the head of my penis. She touched her body with her saliva/vaginal fluids and rubbed my penis on her body. I was not wearing a condom.
A few days after the incident I developed a rash which turned out to be a yeast infection on my penis, which has subsequently cleared up. However, I am now experiencing night sweats, diarrhea, nausea, lack of appetite, weight loss, hot flashes, and I've had a sore throat that cleared up quickly. I've had an antibody test that returned negative, but I know I am in the middle of the 3 month period. I'm not sure if it's anxiety or if it's the early symptoms of HIV. I believe I am starting to suffer from anxiety/nervous attacks on a fairly regular basis.
Could someone please explain the likelihood that I contracted HIV in this very stupid act?
