Condom probably inside vagina

Hi, doctors, I had sex with a sex worker, I used condom. However, when I finished, I did not remember removing it, so maybe, it was stuck inside her I don't know. I also did not have ejaculation. Did I have some risk of getting HIV or other STDs? Please help me, I'm very worried about this

Can tonsillitis affect the HIV test?


I had tonsillitis in May but never went to a doctor to get it checked because it didn't really bother me and I thought I would just let it settle. 2 months later, I did a blood test for HIV and here are the results.

HIV1/2 Ag/Ab Combo - Reactive
HIV1 p24 Antigen - non-reactive
HIV1 Western blot - Negative
HIV final interpretation - No HIV p24 antigen detected; Inconclusive for HIV1/HIV2 antibodies

If my tonsillitis was due to a virus (maybe mono), could this have affected the combo test and show as reactive? I would consider myself as low risk individual (protected sex, no drugs using needle) but the test result is causing a lot of distress. I will have to do another blood test in 4 weeks but I'm scared the combo test will show reactive again because of my recent tonsillitis.

used condom masturbation

I am a male. Last month i went to camping to hills with my friends I got drunk and i had sex with a guy of that area.
he used thin condoms both times.
I gave him oral twice in both intervals.
Firstly He tried to penetrate without condom then i insisted to use condom. he could not enter due to lack of lubricant. is this a risk? then he used condom.
secondly we slept in the tent and the weather was cold and rainy (not snowy). In the early morning i masturbated with the "used condom on my penis".
Any risk ?

please help.

How can I be sure Im HIV negative?

Around November, I had unprotected oral sex. Im pretty sure he didnt cum or anything but three months later i started feeling flu like symptoms. I would feel this tingle on my lips for a few months, a few weeks ago i brushed my teeth with an old toothbrush that I switched after I had oral sex after my tongue started tingle/burning. Then i started having diaherra and i threw up twice and the second time it was because i put my finger in my throat and threw up water.. I didnt eat much that day so after i threw up that water i started to feel chills and pain through my whole body. after that everytime i ate or drank water i would just poo and pee it out. i felt really constipated. so i went to the doctors he said i was hiv negative but i told him i feel like this pin and needles but he said its been awhile since sexual contact. i found out i have hemorrhoids but i feel like this crawling sensation in my body.. is that hiv cd4 crawling inmy body? am i infected???

18 weeks negative but still symptoms

I have been constantly worried about my HIV status - it has now been 18 weeks since I had unprotected vaginal intercourse (lasted around 30seconds) with someone who I do not trust. I did a rapid test at 17,5 weeks and it came back negative, but my throat hurts a lot (my glands send waves of pain, I produce too much and too thick saliva and my ears and head hurt quite often - I have fever on and off). I have seen a number of doctors who have not been able to help me. My partner has been feeling a sore throat for the past three weeks, which makes me even more worried that I might have passed something onto him.
I would be really thankful if you could tell me what to do and how high the risk of my status turning positive still is.

Thank you very much.

Apparently very low risk but ALL symptoms

Hello, I'll try to make long story short as much as possible.
On April 18th I've had unprotected oral sex exposure with unknown guy. The exposure was including both fellatio and cunnilingus and while performing fellatio he never ejaculated in my mouth. The whole process lasted for less than 20 minutes and It wasn't any of my concern until six weeks post this exposure. I started getting very sore throat with enlarged lymph nodes in my neck and armpits followed by muscle and joints pain. I also had white patches on the back of my throat that are still present today (12 weeks post exposure). I checked up with my family doctor who prescribed me penicillin for throat but It never helped and my throat is still present. Exactly six weeks post exposure I went to take tests for STD's including HIV and all results came back negative. The nurse told me because of my risk I shouldn't be concerned anymore about HIV infection and she even told me It's not necessary to get retested again but If I want just to give myself peace in mind I can get another test 12 weeks after possible exposure. I tried to listen to her advice and move on with my life but I started getting even more symptoms such as very itchy skin rash on my arms and chest as well as genital yeast infection. Dry cough was also present for a short time but now it seems to be returning. All these symptoms don't seem to go away and they are occurring over and over again so I decided to went for the second test after 12 weeks and currently I'm waiting for results.

I'm very scared and don't know what to think because I'm driving myself crazing by googling symptoms and although the nurse is convincing me my risk is almost negligible and even if there was risk Hiv test done at 6 weeks would in 95% of the cases picked up infecton by then. I'm going trough a lot and I'm not sure how will I handle this please give me your opinion of what are my chances of being contracted with HIV.
