HIV symptoms


Around 6 months ago, I was really drunk and had sex with a prostitute. She put on the condom she got, gave me oral sex with it on, then we had sex. A little later, I decided to use my condom because I was paranoid, and continued having sex, then I eventually ejaculated in the condom.

I think I contracted AIDS, because while having sex I had an ingrown hair in my genital area, so I had damaged tissue. So perhaps her vaginal fluid came in contact with it.

I think Im experiencing AIDS symptoms. I have shortness of breath, fatigue, and now I started experiencing a weird sensation in my foot, as if someone is holding a lighter near to my ankle. It doesnt burn but it feels warm for a few seconds then goes away. Happens daily I think.

So im wondering if theres a high chance I got AIDS through the damaged tissue.

You had both PROTECTED vaginal and oral sex.

You can NOT contract HIV from an ingrown hair. And one does not contract "AIDS." You can acquire "HIV," which, if left untreated, will eventually become full blown AIDS.

Symptoms are NEVER used to diagnose HIV and since you never had a risk, your symptoms are either being triggered by your anxiety or they are indicative of a completely unrelated underlying issue. See your doctor if they do not abate within 7-10 days.
