    could this be HIV/AIDS or am i paranoid
    An_251941 posted:
    I'm a 18 year old female with little sexual experience, I've had only 2 sexual partners and I've fooled around with one other person but it wasn't penile/vaginal contact or anything like that.
    After my 2nd sexual partner (who is on the promiscous side) I began to get more vaginal infections than usual, I actually got BV (I'm prone to them already as it is very sensitive down there). I'm just worried because I seem to have a cold now, and I was looking up the symptoms I had and it all pointed to HIV or AIDS. I'm worried because it would really suck to be 17 and get AIDS from a mistake.
    I also have Hashimoto's Disease. the Vaginal infections also occur either right before a period or right after. I've been tested for gonorrhea and chlamydia already and they came back negative.
    What's are the chances of me having caught HIV from my partner?

    Since you didn't explain what "fooled around" involved, we can't tell you your risk from picking up an STD...however, since there was no penile/vaginal contact, it is HIGHLY unlikely there is any risk of HIV transmission from anything that took place.
