Hi there; I hope someone can give me some insight:
I have engaged in many interactions with sex workers over the last 4 yearshere in Canada (Ottawa); I would say 80% or so have been strictly receiving oral sex (some protected, some unprotected). Also, I have given unprotected oral sex to these women around 10-12 times total in the last 4 years; any insertive penis to vagina, penis to anus has always been protected. What concerns me is this...
In February of this year, I engaged in contact with a sex worker; I gave her cunnilingus (until completion, if she wasn't faking), then had protected vaginal sex with her for about 1 minute. I am worried about her vaginal secretions possibly having entered somewhere in my mouth. I know this is low risk, but mentally I can't believe it in my scenario; I do have mild gum disease, but I tasted no obvious blood in my mouth, and I do not remember having any cuts or cankers at the time; also, I had some filling put in 1-2 days previous (I believe); also, I had a teeth cleaning about 2-3 weeks prior to this, so I assume my gums were in decent condition (maybe?)
About 3 weeks later, I developed strep throat; this lasted 6 days, but 5-6 days after the strep was gone 4 weeks or so after potential exposure), I got what I assumed to be a cold-flu (not so sure now); I had chills, weakness, and body ache for 2,5-3 days, night sweats for about a week, and a productive cough (not dry at all) that lasted close to three weeks. I didn't give it to much thought before now, but I am becoming crippled with fear. Could these cold symptoms have occured due to having the strep, and maybe it possibly compromised my immune system? I did take an hiv test today, and will find out the results in 2 weeks or so. Any insight on my idiotic behaviours would be helpful. I have a young son, and cannot fathom the type of person I must be to engage in these encounters with such reckless abandon.
P.S.-Any info. on sex workers in Ottawa, and the rate of hiv in this population? (Sorry for writing so much).
Thank you one and all.
