    These are not symptoms consistent with HIV.

    Why are you convinced your partner was HIV positive?

    An_249736 responded:
    Thanks Doctor..
    She seems like prostitue and I guess the parlor people are running prostitute business over there by looking at the place.
    I am assuming she was positive cuz these people rotate girls in different places.

    If these symptoms are not HIV consistent.Did I catch any other infection from her. I never had this burning sensation and pain in penis which started after this exposure.

    Please help me to get proper treatment.
    georgiagail replied to An_249736's response:
    Sounds more like what your Urologist has suggested; Prostatitis.

    This woman may very likely have been a prostitute but a condom was used in the sexual encounter and it did not break or tear. Even assuming she was HIV positive, the virus cannot cross an intact latex barrier.
