OCD and anxiety of HIV all the time after sex is ruining my life

have now realized this is a common thing for me to fear after sexual intercourse. I lost my virginity 2 years ago with a condom and feared that my ex infected me with HIV. He told me he has been tested but I harrassed him and made his life miserable for 3 months. I then got negative test results when I tested. Now,2 years later I am going through the exact same thing. I had sex 2 months ago with a condom and at first I feared I was pregnant but my period started normally and once that was over I started feeling like I had HIV. I noticed that these anxieties comes from whenever me and a guy I date has lost communication and has broken up. What can I do to fix this?? I was told that I shouldn't test due to that I wasn't at risk but I can't help to think something bad has happened when it didn't.

Not to mention I start my first internship today and I can't help but to think I have HIV. I also found someone new in my life and I can't help but to think I am going to infect him with it or when I get my test results it'll be positive and our relationship will end. I had condom sex and I can't deal with the anxiety

I had same experience too.

Since now i am on meds for about one year, and no sex at all. I think I will be in the same boat if I start to look for sex.

Thats *****.
