Help, I am scared! I am 29 and stupidly had a 2 minute unprotected sex with a girl I don't even know her HIV status for some 3 months now. Though I do not have diarrheoa, cough, sore throat, thrush or lumps on my neck and armpits I am even more terrified now. Reason being that about 3 weeks ago, I noticed sudden mild but itchy rash particularly on the sides of my ribs, upper buttocks, arms and thighs (none on the face or neck). It quickly subsided about a few days after without medication. Following that, I noticed a painful swelling on both sides of my groin, the next morning at about 10am I had a bout of fever which went away that night. It was the sequence of which these symptoms manifested and speed with which the fever went away that first drew my attention to the suspicion that it could be HIV. It's been 3 days now since the onset of the swelling and I can still feel them although slightly only if I massage the spots. Is there another sequence the symptoms can appear? Which of them is the most definitive of HIV? Until I have been able to do a home test, I do not have the confidence to see my GP. I am simply devastated and only hope and pray this is anxiety.
