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 30 yr old healthy heterosexual male. 35 days ago I had unprotected vaginal sex with a young woman at a massage place. I entered her for about 15 seconds.( I know - all wrong)
I had a rapid antibody test at 33 days that was negative.
I have minor symptoms that I'm obsessing over the more I look at the internet.
I had a very minor cough for a few days that seems to have gone away. The cough had clear mucus. I wake up sweating but it seems to be after a dream about what the anxiety I have. I have no fever, no swollen lymph nodes, no diarrhea, no headache. I do have some joint pain in the knees which I never have had. I feel like the more research I do, the more I feel sick. It's my understanding that even if she was HIV positive, the risk of transmission is rather small. And, there is no saying what her status was. I went to the Dr. this week to get full blood work done and the HIV 1 / HIV 2 blood tests. He felt my lymph nodes and did an overall check, nothing. Can I start sleeping again or should I continue to freak out!
