hi there jsut a quick question. i am extremely worried that i may have contracted hiv. about 3weeks ago i had unprotected oral sex with a sex worker within her flat. she then used lubrication and provided protection for full sex. but heres the weird part.
3weeks on i have had these symtpoms occuring in order:- sore throat, tightness of breathing, chesty cough, then feverm then a worsened chesty cough but NO blocked nose at all. i went to doctors he said a virus was causing my cough but now i am worried incase it could be HIV. the reason being that after i had ejaculated i kept on having sex for several moments and now im afraid the condom may have burst because ive heard this increases the chances of doing so. i also had herpes present on my penis at the time.
just to add also my mates have all got this flu jsut now but i appear to be only one without a blocked nose but i have not left any windows open and have been sleeping in t shirt and trousers under the covers. i am worried sick.
i am goign for a test next week and that will be 4weeks.
(a) whats my chances of hiv based on these symptoms?
(b0 does lubrication decrease sexual safetey even when a condom is used?
(c) this quote especially had made me paranoid ...
"Unfortunately, many people's first symptom of HIV involves the respiratory system, illustrating why HIV testing is so important. Any cough or shortness of breath could be a sign of bacterial pneumonia or pneumocystis (carinii) jiroveci pneumonia (PCP)"
however is this at the stage after hiv has fully developed?
also do sex workers that dont work from the streets tend to be less hiv stricken thn others?
many thanks. a worried man. p.s ignore my previous post as this was too detailed.
