I had sexual encounter with sex worker in Pattaya, Thailand. It was a soapy massage in which first we both get into tub naked and wash each other. Then she made me lie down a plastic mattress and slide upon my bare body by her bare body. She did all kind body to body rubbing while covered in soap. she was also rubbing her genitals on my genital . Now after washing with water she gave me towel to wipe. And she used another towel to wipe her . Afterwards we had protected sex on the bed. Next day i noticed abrassion or you may call it scratch on my inner thigh /groin area which was looking red but it was not bleeding , it may be caused by her intense rubbing by her pubic hairs cause while she was clean shaven down but one small area/patch in her pubic region was not clean shaven and it was very small needly like pubic hairs. So that must be reason. So is there any risk involved due to cut while genital rubbing and may be some fluid of her touched my scratched area .

But now i am worried if I am at risk . Cause after 2weeks i stared to have itchiness around neck but they used to come and go but i never scratched them And some type of feeling that my throat is behaving differently.i read all these symptoms over the net and i worried to death if I actually had been infected. Also my hunger is not the same any more.

So i got tested for ELISA which i think was a 4th genration p24 and antibody . The test was done after 33 days and result said non reactive. is this report ok to be relied on? .

Please reply my message . Now today that is 25 may 2016 its been 46 days. The present situation is that there are some very few pimple like small lesions things on my upper shoulder which do not itch . I did not yet got flu , fever, nose running or muscle ache.

Thanks for reading my message hope you create awareness like this all the time. God bless

Hi there and thank you for reaching out to AIDS Vancouver with your questions. We're happy to help!

To start off with, I will address your risk level, including the irritated area on your thigh. Protected sex is considered a low risk activity, meaning that there have been a few reports of infection attributed to this activity, but usually under certain identifiable conditions (e.g. the condom breaking). However, correct use of a condom greatly lowers this risk, as the condom acts as a barrier against the transmission of body fluids. In terms of the abrasion on your thigh, this is a no risk situation. In order for a cut or wound to transmit HIV, the cut needs to be gushing blood and require immediate and professional medical attention, as the virus requires direct access to the bloodstream. Since your wound does not match this description, there is no risk for HIV transmission.

I also wanted to address these symptoms you have been having. There are no specific symptoms of HIV. In fact, certain individuals may never develop symptoms, and for those who do, most symptoms will go away after a few days, or at most, a couple of weeks. This is why the only way to diagnose HIV is to get tested. Because HIV symptoms mirror so many other viral infections or can be explained by other things, we do not go by symptoms here at AIDS Vancouver.

In terms of the test that you took, here in Canada, all tests are considered conclusive 3 months (12 weeks) after your most recent exposure. This means that if you are looking for conclusive results, you would need to re-test again at 3 months.

I hope I have answered your question, and feel free to contact us with any further concerns.

Regards,
