hi i am jinx from the philippines i had unprotected anal (im on top) with a stranger on march 1, 2016 and got i got tested on june 9, 2016 in a government building that offers free test the test was rapid immunochromatographic assay. the city in which i live is hiv free from 1998 to 2012 but im still confused because i had hiv symptoms that might be nothing more than just a result of heat (summer here is very hot in fact a almost 10 people from where i live died of heat exhaustion). i had rashes in my neck and shoulders. and tired other than that no more symptoms that i saw on the internet *question should i get tested again or feel safe and how accurate is a rapid immunochromatographic assay thanks
I had unprotected sex with another male approximately 3 moths ago. I do not know if he is infected or not. A week ago, I started feeling sick; I had a sore throat. I went to the doctor and he said my left tonsil was very swollen and that it might be an abscess, so I started taking antibiotics and after 4 days it got much, much better. I have no pain now.
The doctor changed one of the antibiotics, and ever since the first time I took the first pill I felt sick. At night, 3 hours (approximately) after taking the second pill, my face started to itch and the rash lasted for about 5-10 minutes.
I've been reading a lot about HIV and I read that the most common symptoms include: rash and sore throat. I know I might be overreacting, but I am scared I could actually have contracted HIV.
Can it be a possibility or is it just my nerves?

Hello there. I'm from indonesia, can I ask something question in this forum?
I am extremely worried that I have contracted HIV. I get regret when after have anal sex 3 days ago.
I have anal sex with a man, his penis was on my anus without condom :( I'm already notice him but he force me. now, I am extremely worry.
1. when I have to test hiv?
2. what should I do now?
What are the chances of being infected with hiv after having the condom broke for about 5 minutes? I just want to release myself from the anxiety that I have so I am desperately trying to find out what were the chances. Thank you for the answer.
Two weeks ago I had protected sex with a girl, but the condom broke and we realised after about 15 minutes of having sex. The girl that I was with also gave me oral sex ( protected ) exactly after we have normal sex, but after giving me oral sex we kissed each other and I am worried that I might have got the hiv virus from her vaginal fluids that were present in her mouth. Exactly 8 days after we had sex I had a rough cold but not with high fever, sore throat or rash on the body, just the normal common cold that everyone has. Now I am trying to think if these were hiv or there weren't hiv symptoms.I did not realised the risk at the moment and now I am trying to realise if I should get an HIV test or not. I do not usually do these type of things and I tested myself everytime when I felt at risk, but right now I am not sure if it is an risk or not. I would kindly appreciate any answer that I could get. Thank you very much.
Helow I am 19 year Old recently i had sex with my girlfriend i used a condom to have sex with her but unfortunately condom broke out during the act and as soon as i noticed it we immediately stopped the act and even i did not cum during the whole course..My Girlfriend had sex with a guy before and the guy even used condom to fuck her So basically she had sex twice 1 with that guy earlier and second with me so is there any chance that i can be infected with HIV?
Vaginal sex, condom broke for brief period and started Truvada after 26 hours. After 3 days partner is HIV Negative by Ora quick test
Very sad story. Met a girl in strip club, after few days I (44 years old) had a protected sex with that girl. But my condom was broke in middle and my top exposed for 20 seconds - 1 min max. I stop the sex and clean my penis with soap water. Penis is dry and no fluids have been noticed. Local Doctor gave Truvada only (PEP) and other antibacterials drugs as well.
After 5 days, I explained my panic situation. She said, she has a baby 4 months back and she tested HIV while she was pregnant and came negative. I convinced her for Ora Quick test and she took with confident and it came negative.
Here my questions are …
1. Do I need to worry about anything? Or am I out of danger since my partner is HIV negative?
2. This is my 6th day for Truvada. Can I continue Truvada? If yes, do I need to add any other PEP drug?
Please advise me.
I had unprotected sex with someone I later realized was hardcore heroine addict. He had a wristband on at the time telling me an elaborate story. He was actually covering all of his track marks and sores. After realizing this, I borrowed anti viral medication. Y the name of acyclovir. I've been taking 800mg a day for the past week after having intercourse with him. He did not cum inside me, but there could have been pre ejaculation that entered inside me. I also happened to be menstuarating and I am curious if that will have any effect on transmission. I am also curious if the acyclovir will help prevent transmission or is it too late?
I have read some recent post and really appreciate volunteer people who take their time and help others. I'm one of them and I'm actually MUCH MUCH MORE TERRIFIED terrified right now as I'm feeling MUCH BETTER (almost as same old me) from last few days which turned out to be just a miracle.
About one and half month ago, I have had receptive unprotected anal sex. I had some bleeding hemorrhoids. Everything was fine for two to three weeks and things went downhill for me. I've FELT (not inflating any bit of it) possibly symptoms that happens with ARS.. had a mid grade burning fever, severe fatigue, night sweats, 15 sudden red blotches, sores in mouth, rash on face and chest area, total brain fog, swollen lymph not under armpit, anemia... I can go on an on ). It was terrible two to four weeks and now suddenly I feel great with clear mind.
-> Highest Risk of Anal UNPROTECTED receptive sex
-> 2-4 weeks of severe ARS symptoms
-> Worst Symptoms suddenly went away and for now I'm just feeling awesome again, which worries me with clear mind/body as few weeks ago it worried me with unclear mind/body :-(
I had following test done
1) 1 week 4th gen ab/ag duo -ve
2) 4 1/2 week 4th gen ab/ag duo -ve
3) 5 1/2 week 4th gen ab/ag duo -ve
4) 5 1/2 week RNA TMA non-reactive...
I understand that by 4 week 95% will test positive in 4th gen. Worried that I might be in 5% who developes ab/ag after that time so I got RNA TMA done ...Does that give me some consolation ?
