Hello and thank you for your inquiry.

We gather that you are wondering if you are at risk of acquiring HIV from having condom protected sex with a sex worker. Protected vaginal or anal sex is classified as a Low Risk activity for HIV transmission. This means that there have been a few reports of infection from this activity, usually under certain identifiable conditions. One example would be condom breakage or failure. Your use of condoms is commendable and greatly reduces your risk of acquiring HIV. I have included a link with some advice for effective condom use below. (1)

The symptoms your describe are vague and common and should not be attributed to an HIV infection unless you test positive for HIV.

Recommendation: Refer to a healthcare professional for HIV testing. Fourth-generation HIV tests can detect HIV infection in 50% of people by 18 days after infection; 95% of people by 34 days after infection; and 99% of people by one and a half months after infection. These tests have a sensitivity of about 99.9% (2)
