Hi there Thanks for advance this is a great site..Here is my problem..
7 weeks ago i had protected sex for about 35 min with a lady i don't know ha status...I was so drunk and out of it..i wasn't really feeling the sex @ all but in that 35 min i decided to stop only to find out the condom had broken..I don't know for how long was i inside her for without protection but m guessing 15 min max..There was virginal fluids were all over my penis after realizing this i asked her if she knew her status then she said she was negative just after our little chat i went outside and wiped the fluids away and went to sleep...
I waited 6 weeks and went for an HIV i guess u can call it Eliza cause the doctor took a hole lot of my blood for a lab test which came negative..She also went to get tested cause she might have the same fears as me and she came out negative as well but for some reason i don't trust her...
Now it's been 7 weeks after the exposure and i have this kind of flu like symptom it feels like m about to catch a cold but i don't i usually sneeze a lot..No fever no night sweat..slightly headaches nothing major though..a Bid of rash that i am used to reason i say used to is because i happen to be Diabetic and the rash is something that always comes out...
Are these the beginning symptoms of HIV or is these anxiety symptoms of thinking to much about it cause really i am freaking out...
Sorry for my Broken English it's not my mother tongue.
Hi there -
I have had unprotected sex before and i am not sure whether my vaginal discharge has been this way before but since my encounter i have constantly been noticing an increase in discharge. I am quite sure it is a larger amount than most woman and experience it every day.
This is not accompanied by any burning, itching, or pain. My question is - is this constant increase in discharge a sign of an STI ie. syphilis etc. ?
3 days ago i noticed I had a red raised legion on my neck.
The next day it had a very tiny white head. I have also gotten very itchy bumps on my arms, knees, and recently just got one on my pubic area (vagina). The bumps on my arm, knee, and pubic area are itchy.
I had unprotected sex 5-6 months ago.
I also had swollen lymph nodes last week that lasted for about 7- 10 days.
Could these be symptoms of STI's? If so, which ones?
I am very worried.
I had an unprtected vaginal sex . I had 4th generation a test 92 days after exposure and a PCR RNA (20 copies/ml undetectable is it enough?thnaks

First of all i want to thank you so much for this useful site that help many. My question is this...I had a unprotected sex in between September 15 and 30 2011. I went to the VCT on December 2 and i tested negative i later went for another test on 21 December and i tested negative.
I tried to calculate from 15 September if it could be the possible exposure date and it comes to 97 days and when i calculate from 30th Sept to 21st Dec it comes to 82 days. Am afraid of going back to test again for possible infection. Am i safe with the 82 days. I normally have night sweets and have lost 2kgs of my wait.
Thank you for a sincere response.
hello, I had unprocted and this is the forth week since that happened. I started experiencing symptoms which I doubted to be of acute HIV, two days ago I had a sore throat, and three days later I got a headache and fever as well as fatigue but I haven't gone for a test. Do these symptoms mean an HIV Infection? Also I had a partner who we had a sex three times after my unprotected experience. If I am affected is there a chance of her being affected at this early stage?
To summarize, I had unprotected insertive anal sex with an unknown male. At 2 weeks I had an HIV/ syphilis rapid(fingerprick) test performed). It came back negative. At 6 weeks, I decided to take another HIV/ syphilis rapid (fingerprick) test. It came back negative. At 12 weeks I had a 4th Generation EIA blood draw test. It also came back negative for HIV and HEP C. Then at 16 weeks, I became really worried and anxious again and had another HIV/ syphilis rapid (fingerprick test), it also came back negative. Would it be safe to say that I am HIV negative?
Thank you for your help.
