Re: Decreased erections and bloodshot eyes
Well I went to my doctor today and she couldn't seem to find an explanantion for my eyes but has prescribed me antibiotic eyedrops.
My exposure: Over a month and a half ago I had unprotected sex with a female of unknown status. A few days later I found out that she sleeps around a lot and has had chlamydia - which makes it easier for the transmission for HIV. I went for a test a week after the incident and everything came out negative but i know it was too soon.
About 2 and a half weeks after i had sex, i got a swelling on my elbow one morning which gradually spread to my arm and gave me the chills, then a very high fever and a headache. This lasted for a few days. I went to my doctor and he told me it was due to a cut near my elbow which had been infected by bacteria and he put me on penicillin. Im not sure whether the penicillin worked because by the time id started the course, the fever, headache were gone and the swelling was already going down by itself. So im scared about whether this could have been caused by HIV seroconversion.
Since then I no longer seemed to get morning erections, my libido seems lower and my eyes get bloodshot during the day for no reason. I finished my course of penicillin a while ago so i dont think its a reaction to that.
Ive tried very hard not to think of my upcoming hiv test in about a month's time. I've gone out with friends, tried to enjoy my life so im skeptical whether this is caused by stress/anxiety. Is it possible for stress/anxiety to subconsciously manifest itself causing these symptoms?
I really dont know. I just wish I had been such an idiot and gotten so drunk that night. I hope I dont have to pay for my actions.
