Posted , 5 users are following.

Hi guys i would like some advice on my hiv worry please if you's would be so kind !! 9 weeks ago i met with a guy for sex. the only act was anal, i received !! he wore a condom as i instructed.. the anal lasted about 4 minutes and in that time he pulled out once and entered me again, when he had come he pulled out and went straight to the bathroom, i got dressed and left, 3 days later i got the chills which lasted 8 days, i got worried and 18 days post exposure i went to my local gum clinic for tests which came back negative for Hiv Hepatitis Chlamydia Gonorrhea and Syphilis, the head nurse in charge told me to come back at week 12 to do another test which is in a little over 2 weeks time !! on week 4 i noticed about 12 red pimple like spots on my chest and shoulders which are still here today, no other symptoms untill week 8 my left hip and groin started to feel really sore causing me to limp and a few other aches and pains around my shoulders and shins and i now feel sick and have some diarrhea and fuzzy headedness, i am starting to worry if he had removed the condom during the one time he withdrew from me as i never thought of checking , i have a partner whom is male and who i cheated on with this act is also experiencing headaches and severe pain in his hip and buttock area and pains accross the collarbone and arms, could this be ars symptoms guys? i do understand i have to test again in just over 2 weeks time so please dont bore lecture me on testing, many thanks in advance and any advice or knoledge would be greatly appreciated, thankyou

    In any case we will be happy to hear about your results! I think I've got all imaginable symptoms after sex..and after a year in which all different specialists made a range of tests they offered me some kind of antidepressant which i didn't choose to take. your symptoms developed really soon after exposure.. Let's just say it is an awful coincidence.. Please, report back. All the best

    I have no idea. I'd believe that you cought some kind of bug, but doctors usually test just for th most obvious ones. And if all those are negative, there is a slight reason to be happy. Probably after 3 months tests should be reliable enoughn whereas some say hiv test should be repeated after 6 months. Panic doesn't do any good at this stage. Red spots could be a symptom of syphilis (but in it's secondary stage). There is nothing much u can do as to wait for 2 weeks and check for hiv and syphilis again. Diarrhea can be caused by other viruses.

    Oral sex is not without any problems. It can easily cause infections, and condoms are not a guarantee that you wont get infection with this kind of hard sex.

    In fact, Hepatitis C is usually attained this way. 

    You diarrhea and light headedness indicate some kind of blood infection. 

    Hepatitis B and C testing are required immediately.
