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 17 year old Junior in High School and recently in my anatomy class we reviewed std's and it made me prettty nervous. The reason I say this is because when i was 13 I had unprotected oral sex with a girl who had participated in unprotected sex before she hooked up with me. My anatomy class got me thinking about the possibility that I could indeede by HIV positive. I've used a condom with all the the other people I've hooked up with and I haven't experienced any of the symptoms of HIV (rashes, swollen glands, severe depression, and a few others) except for fatuige (most teens like me are tire because of works, school, homework, sports, the gym, etc.), fever (from rarely being sick) which only lasts for like a few days, and a cough (that may only last for a day or two from like my allergies). Im nervous about this because I know that this is a very serious matter, but some people have told me that I'm the type to worry and stress about unimportant things and I want to know if I'm just being a worry-wart. Any feed-back would be greatly appreciated. Thank u =)
