Hi there,

Thank you for reaching out to AIDS Vancouver, I'm happy to address your concerns.

It sounds like you're very worried that you have acquired HIV through your interaction with a sex worker. It's great to hear that you used a condom! Using a condom correctly and consistently is one of the best harm reduction measures, as it's an efficient way to prevent HIV transmission. Having protected sex is considered to be a safe sex practice.

It's also important to know that diagnosis of living with HIV cannot be determined by symptoms. This is because symptoms associated with HIV are very similar to other infections, such as the flu. The only way to know your true status is through testing. I would suggest for you to consult your local healthcare practitioner to discuss the symptoms that are affecting your health in a negative way. We here at AIDS Vancouver also encourage individuals to incorporate HIV testing in their annual health checkup.

If you have anymore questions, please do not hesitate to ask. For more information, please visit

All the best,

Leila
