Hi I went to a strip club with my friends and we were some what drunk and I had a nude lap dance cause it was my first time going to a strip club and my friends wanted me to experience it and so when the dance went on I licked/sucked her nipple when she was really close, never kissed her but I felt her vagina but that's really all that happened but I was fully clothed. but after the dance(like 10/15min later) I forgot to wash my hands and I touched my penis(uncircumcised) and I got worried and also when the dance went on she touched her vagina and was rubbing her body then breast and I don't really remember if I sucked her nipples before or after the rubbing. but a few days later I was developing a cold. I had a bad sore throat, nasal congestion, headace and my eyes were really sensitive. so I went to two clinics(one after two weeks and the other after a month) and told them what happended they examined my penis and mouth, nose, eyes and found no signs of sores or rashes or anything out of the ordinary and just said that I just got a cold, and maybe allergies too cause my nose was red or a bit swollen inside. but im still nervous at the idea of me having hiv or stds cause of this incident and I had sex with my girlfriend and shes not developing any signs at all but im nervous of ACTUALLY having something but both the clinic doctors said that theres no reason to test cause I didn't have sex with the stripper and that I wasn't at risk. but am I really not infected ? or all of this is in my head please educate me so I could feel a bit at ease thank you

Hi there, and thanks a lot for contacting the AIDS Vancouver Helpline for your HIV/AIDS related health information. It seems you're concerned about the possibility of HIV transmitting. We're happy to answer your question for you.

This is a no risk situation. To understand why, consider the transmission equation:
HIV TRANSMISSION EQUATION


BODY FLUID
+
ACTIVITY
+
DIRECT ACCESS TO BLOODSTREAM
---------- -------- ----------------------------
• blood (including menstrual) • unprotected anal or vaginal intercourse • vagina
• semen • sharing needles • anus
• pre-cum • mother to child (in specific cases) • urethra in the penis
• rectal secretions • open cuts and sores (in theory)
• vaginal fluids • other mucosal membranes
• breast milk • points of needle injection
You'll see that required for transfer are all of a fluid involved in transfer, an activity involved in transfer, and direct access to the bloodstream. This does not involve an activity involved in transfer, nor does it provide direct access to the bloodstream to any significant extent. For these reasons, these are no risk situations.

As for the symptoms you are experiencing, we at AIDS Vancouver are not healthcare providers, so cannot comment on them. However, HIV infections are never diagnosed based on symptoms alone, simply because the symptoms of an HIV infection are quite common to many other common medical conditions. Testing is the only way to diagnose an HIV infection. If you're concerned about any symptoms you're experiencing, we'd encourage you to see a healthcare provider.

Thanks a lot for contacting the AIDS Vancouver Helpline with your question, we hope it has been answered fully.
