Hello and thank you for choosing the Helpline. Using condoms for intercourse is the best defense against all sexually transmitted infections, including HIV.
If the condom did not break and was not expired, you have not put yourself at risk for HIV. The test results from the Rapid Test at 30 days is a great indication that you were never exposed to HIV however an HIV test is not conclusive until 12 weeks, post risk exposure.
The multiple ailments you are experiencing are in no relation to HIV. Please note all issues and directly discuss with your health care provider. Sympotoms are not an indication of HIV and only testing can give you this information.
It should also be noted that a Commercial Sex Worker ins no more likely to have HIV than anyone else.
If you have any other questions or are in need of support for a final HIV test, please do not hesitate to contact us at any time.
All the best,
David
