Please help. HIV related

Posted , 3 users are following.

Hi there, please help me clear my mind about HIV exposure with a SW about 2 weeks ago. Here is the story:

If or let assume I have mild inflamed urethra (penis), does it increase my chance of getting HIV just by genital rubbing (she was on top about 4-5 sec) assuming she's HIV+? Do the symptoms show after 3 days? Here is my timeline of the my symptoms:

  1. 3 days after the exposure, slight shoulders soreness and mild tiredness/fatigue
  2. 5 days after exposure, mild jaw pain on both sides and mild headache (headache comes and goes)
  3. About a week after exposure, both hands and legs feel tingling, hand /leg muscles ache and shoulder joint pain. I still have this till today which is about 2 weeks now.
  4. Currently I have been losing weighs like 2kg for the past few days

I don't know what the SW status is. But let assume she is HIV+. How likely is it for me to get HIV? My shoulder joints and arm and tights muscle has been in pain or aching since the beginning of the 2nd week after exposure. I can not think of anything that could have cause these symptoms. Please help answer to me. I'm really worried and stressed. I'm pretty sure I'm infect but I also know that I can not be 100% sure until I get tested.

      hi Alleneo, you might be right but what is causing these shoulder joints pain and muscle aching? I have never feel these kind of pain and ache before (this is roughly a week after the exposure). How about her vagina rubbing on my penis? and I think my urethra was a bit inflamed or irritated also. That could provide a direct bloodstream for her vaginal fluids if she's HIV+.

    HIV symptoms don't show up in 2 days after exposure.

    Your shoulder pain is completely unrelated.

    May be you are having fever or cold or something else.

    Also you exposure is very low risk in terms of HIV almost 1/1000.
