headaches
I am 22, have never had sex and never done drugs. 3 months ago I was with a guy and he put his finger inside of me. there was some bleeding and I was sore afterwards but the pain went away after a day. a few days later I started feeling sick, naseaus and loss of appetite. i started getting headaches which feels like pulsing on the sides of my head and pressure in the arch of my nose and also occassional sore throats. i have been getting these headaches daily for a few months now. after this experience i also started to experience irregularities in my period and noticed irregular hair growth. my doctor put me on birth control for this. could i have been infected with hiv if he had seamen on his fingers or a cut on his hand? if not is there something else that could be causing this? i have been to many doctors but not tested for stds because we did not have intercourse but i can't help but notice the coincidence of these incidents.

Fingering has no relation with HIV or STD transmission. However dirty hands not washed properly before insertion could cause vaginal infections.

it has been another month now and i am still getting headaches, they seem to be getting somewhat better. But I also feel as if I am experiencing enlarged lymph nodes in my groin area. It feels as if there is a nerve being pinched and it sends a pain down my legs. It also makes me nauseous and I have lost my appetite. could this be caused by a bacterial or vaginal infection. There was a lot of bleeding when he put his finger inside me. But I feel as if a bacterial infection would go away after a few weeks but this whole thing has been lasting for 4 months now and I am really scared.
