HIV??


Hello,

I'm really worried I may have contracted HIV. I had protected vaginal and unprotected oral sex 5 weeks ago. I have had many symptoms but the symptoms I'm still having  are chest pain, occasional severe stomach pain and nerve pain in my arm, hands and thumbs ( like a sharp pain occasionally)

My arms just don't feel right at all! I feel very weak and I'm praying to God I that I don't have HIV!

So worried right now! please help!

You never had an exposure. HIV is not transmitted by oral sex and you had protected vaginal sex.

Why do I have these symptoms then?

Symptoms are misleading most of the time, just ignore them,, you never had exposure, as you were told

Teak I must say thanks for your support but why am I feeling like I do? My body cant function because my mind is constantly thinking and worrying of HIV?

The only things that give me hope are that I have had no rash, no swollen lymph nodes and I havent had a high fever since 3 days post exposure which would be to early to be HIV.

What gives you hope is you never had an exposure.

Teak what if I had a condom failure?

If I have sex with someone HIV+ are you guaranteed to contract it?

We don't take "what if" questions. Had the condom failed you would have known.

My results came back today, Negative for HIV, Syphilis, Hepatitis B & C.

Im wondering if to do another Test after 3 months which would be conclusive. Thank you Teak for putting my mind at ease lately, I really admire what you do for this forum/website.

Thanks a lot, Dean
