Hey there!

It seems like you're concerned about the symptoms you're experiencing after having sex with a commercial sex worker. Thanks for coming to us at AIDS Vancouver for help!

First of all, it's great that you used a condom! Because you did you drastically reduced your risk of acquiring HIV.

Based on what you've told me, the result of your last test is reliable and considered conclusive by the World Health Organization. Further testing is not necessary for the experience you described.

Also, symptoms are never used in the diagnosis of HIV because the virus mirrors the symptoms of other infections. The only way to know for sure is through testing so it's great that you were proactive and got tested!

I trust I have answered your questions but feel free to reach out to us again if there's anything else we can do for you!
