    These are not symptoms of early onset HIV.

    Assuming your condom was used accurately and did not break or tear you are not at risk for HIV even if your partner was HIV positive.

    Symptoms of HIV occur 2 to 6 weeks after transmission, not immediately after sex or the next day. These are described as "flu like" in nature.

    lucifer replied to georgiagail's response:
    but what about the itching?why did that happen?
    georgiagail replied to lucifer's response:
    Haven't a clue. Perhaps you are sensitive to the condom. Some folks are.
