cannot diagnose hiv by symptoms.. its nearly impossible because symptoms that occur(which most people dont) are flue like symptoms, swollen lymph nodes, rash.. all these symptoms could be caused by plenty of other illnesses so hiv can never be diagnosed with symptoms alone.. state your risk first so people can ***** the possibility.. if not take a test at 8 weeks or if you can wait long den 12 weeks as 12 weeks is conclusive!.. light sensitivity is not a symptom of hiv.

Well I have been with my gf for a year and a half. Silly thing is before that I have slept with over 40 girls prolly. Most unprotected. And a couple
one nighters. Ya.....I'm an idiot. I have herpes but that's not all that bad at all. Hasn't really affected my life in anyway.

As long as you are telling your partners that you have herpes and you aren't having unprotected sex.

Why the HELL would you PURPOSELY infect someone else with Herpes?

...and don't say that you didn't do it on purpose, because you did. Herpes can be passed on whether you are having an outbreak or not.
I hope someone gets you in trouble.

Based on your given history of sleeping with 40+ girls, mostly unprotected, I would say you need a freaking HIV test.
