About 3 months plus ago, i had a protected sex with a transgender sex worker. It was my first time of having any kind of sex.
I am jz 22 years old.
I did it due bad decision making and such.
But soon after , i started to panic and thought that i might have HIV.
So i started to buy 3rd gen antibody test kits and testing it on myself, and all came in negative.
I tested on myself for more than 4 times , starting from week 71/2 until week 11.
That would once a week, and i still doubted the results.
And on week 13 , i finally mustered up all the courage i have and go for a hiv testing at a local anonymous hiv testing center funded by a huge foundation which combats HIV.
I did the 4th gen antibody-antigen combo rapid test. When the result came out, it was negative. I even cried when i was talking to the counsellor. It was the happiest dat of my life.
But the relief didnt last long, as i start to think what if the results arent accurate, and many what if.
I also started to google informations of HIV and it just makes me feel worse. I cant stop doing it, and the more i look up for information the scarier it is to me.
And i do have 1 symptom of HIV , which is rashes. The itch comes and goes.
I also suffers from diarrhea.
I have seek 2 different doctors' opinion and they say its only allergy/ eczema.
The first doctor prescribed me with prednisolone which helps to subside the inflammation, but it made my acne worse.
The 2nd doctor gave me some moisteriser cream and anti histamine to help with the itch.
But i cant seem to stop the anxiety that i am having . Its ruining my life, what i suppose to do ?
Please , i would like to have some tips.
