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 in a state a terrible depression. 6 weeks ago I had protected sex with a prostitute. It lasted around 5 minutes. She only put the condom on my penis and removed it also. She also used condom gel. After the act I washed my hands put my clothes and went. I didnt wash my penis or genital area until I reached home. Currently I am seeing symptoms like
Sudden body temperature increase
Sometimes running nose
Today I also faced acute pain in my left biceps.
Flaked skin under nose (Seborrheic Dermatitis, may be due to winter? )
Decrease in appetite and cant eat as much as I used to eat before. Losing taste in tongue
Stomach kind of making sounds sometimes. Sometimes I feel bloating also. Had loose motions 1.5 to 2 weeks before for about 4 days.
Reduction in weight
When I had sex with her, I had two white patches(not sure whats it, havent consulted doc) on my thigh near the genital area. And her bum and genital area made contact with my genital area during sex.
Also I have uncircumcised Penis. I am so upset and constantly thinking why did I do this? I need to gather some courage and then go for HIV testing.
Thanks a lot Teak for the fast reply. I saw some articles in the internet saying Uncircumcised Penis catches HIV infection easily. Also since I didnt clean up the genital area with a tissue paper or so, is there any issue if there were minute vaginal fluid there (this I am not sure) and when I put my clothes on could it affect the penis?
I also face dry throat and non productive cough since last week. All the searches in Internet have kinda pointed towards HIV/AIDS. When I did with the prostitute I was sure it was safe. But now going through the symptoms I am facing and articles in Internet, kinda feeling devastated. I hope its just the mind playing tricks.
