    HELP! Are my infected with the HIV virus
    An_210315 posted:
    I just recently had a sore throat, muscle & joint pain, slight fever & small patch of rash below my neck.
    About four weeks ago, I had protected sex with a gal-friend and she massage my pennis very hard which lead me to have bruises on my pennis. I feel pain on the surface of my pennis but i did not see any open wound.
    I also press her breast & it brings out fluid, which I feel and see on my hand.
    My fear is this, was I expose to the HIV virus with those symptoms I had recently. I am so afraid.
    Did her breast fluid pass HIV through the bruises on my pennis, when I was trying to wear the condom?
    Can HIV pass through bruises on a pennis with open cut or wound?
    To stop the sore throat, I took erythromycin and the sore throat disappeared within 3 days.
    Please help I have been living in fear since I had this intercourse with this gal and it has raised my BP to 130/109

    You cannot diagnose HIV on symptoms alone, there are many ailments that cause the symptoms you mentioned. Your risk for HIV in this scenario is zero. The virus is not going to pass through a bruise.

    Thank you very much for your time in replying me. As at the time I had sex with this my gal, I had an open boil wound at the boundary between my pennis and scrotum. My fear is that, in the course of the intercourse, did her ovary fluid splash and touch the wound. How possible?

    Secondly, I still rash like heat rash all over my body and it itches me every now and then. I am so full of fear and losing my mind. I feel like committing suicide. Please this is my story.

    ovary fluid? what health classes did you take?

    go and be seen and get a proper work up done.

    You have to wait 3 months after the encounter to get tested for hiv. have you talked to this gal to ask her if she's had full std testing?
    Talking about std testing is NORMAL and something we all should be doing EVERY TIME before we have sex with a new partner :)

    sorry, I mean her vaginal fluid. I raised the discussion with her and all she insisted is that I used a condom with her in our sexual intercourse.
