Welcome to the Forum. The exposures you describe are not associated with risk for STD or HV. Condom protected sex and your exposures were condom protected. When condoms fail, they break wide open, leaving no doubt that they have failed.
From what you say there is no reason for concern and no reason for testing.
As for your gastrointestinal symptoms, these are more likely to be due to some other cause, such as something you ate, than to any STD, including HIV.
doctor i am a bit concerend since the days after i cam back from tijuana mexico i am having difficulty digesting food and other gastrintestinal problems are they related to the exposure at all or do i need to get checked
i am just curious as to why i have gastrointestinal problems such as discomfort and stomach problems since i came back from tijuana mexico and it is suddenly, does this have anything to do with the exposure since i have not expereinced this before
You keep repeating these questions. This will not change my responses. I have already told you that your stomach and gastrointestinal problems are in no way related to the low risk exposure that you mentioned. Gastrointestinal illnesses are common among visitors to Mexico and have nothing to do with sex. EWH
i keep asking and this is the last question its been almost a weeks since i came from mexico and i still have gastrointestinal problems such as burping, indigestion and urges to use the restroom, i do not know why it persists but do you reccomend getting checked for these issues and am i completely free from HIV and std,
