Last month, on 21st August, I slept with a prostitute. We used protection (condom) but after a week I started coughing, and experiencing lower abdomen pains. I feel internal strain around my genitals but there are no ulcers or rash around them or anywhere in my skin! My cough has also subsided and I don't have flu. I do not have a serious sore throat nor have my lymph nodes swollen. My fever is normal and I am not sweating at night. I am scared I might have contracted HIV but I am also wondering why and I used protection. Recently I have been unable to make love to my wife although we have already done it without protection after the August 21st sex event. What are my chances that I have HIV? Could this be another STI? Or I am just scared for nothing? Paranoia has gotten better part of me and all I can think now is how I am gonna die and leave my wife and a kid who is only months old!
