Hi 1 week ago i engage in some activities with a prostitute. She started off by giving me a handjob a=to stimulate my penisas it was not growing. after a long while i used a condom and penetrated her for roughly 1 or 2 minutes we stoped because i was not hard enough. after stopping removed the condom. and them engaged in more masturbations by her part then by myself to try to get an erection. after possible 20minutes of trying i got it up again and reengaged in penetration with a new condom that didnt last very long. my penis was completely inside her but with condom on and had to remove due to not beeing erect after awhiel. after that engage in some second round of handjobs without the condom. and then ended. since then i have had sore throat 2 days after wich was resolved with some medication and a headache.. but no running nose or coughs. wich to me was strange but i rouglhy associated the sore throat and headache with the time i had the engagement with the prostitute as it was raining and i was outside exposed to it for a while.. either way i have bee having major loss of apetite. and stress levels and anxiety levels through the roof. i am in serious need of some advice and also if is there any possible way of conracting anything serious by what i have described

Hi there and thank you for contacting the AIDS Vancouver Online Helpline.

Protected sex (sex with a condom) is considered to be a low risk activity for acquiring HIV. Handjobs are considered to be a negligible risk (meaning that there has not been a reported case of someone acquiring HIV in this way in British Columbia). So, your total risk from this sexual experience can be considered to be low.

In regards to the symptoms you've been experiencing, at AIDS Vancouver we do not go by symptoms as an indicator of HIV. This is because symptoms can be present for any number of reasons that are not related to HIV. My recommendation would be to share your concerns about symptoms with your doctor and partner with them in figuring out the cause of your symptoms.

If you are sexually active it is recommended to get regular HIV testing for your health and to know your status. In addition to this, it is also a good idea to get regular STI testing. For more information about STI's you can visit http://www.smartsexresource.com.

For more information about HIV you can always visit the AIDS Vancouver website or CATIE.ca.

I hope this information helps to answer your questions.
