Chance of catching HIV with protected sex?

When condom stays on and doesn't tear? Anyone? I've got a high fever, boiling up, face is hot and neck and groin glands are swollen and painful,, 4-6 weeks after exposure

Re: Chance of catching HIV with protected sex?

Condom protected 80-97% so the chance tear is possible but rear. As for symptoms it can cause of anything. I alway use protection when I have sex with someone I don't know and get test later on for a piece of mind. I know I don't need to test but my mind play trick on me all the time and it alway win. If you worry that the symptom may cause by HIV than get test and stop worry! But I think your test will be negative! Let me know the result if you do get test which I don't recommend but only do it for a piece of mind. Rather test than turn yourself worry and crazy!

Re: Chance of catching HIV with protected sex?

Condoms are 100% effective at protecting from HIV when used correctly, not the figures quoted above.
If your condom didn't break then you will not be at risk of HIV fact. If it did tear the condom would be like burst balloon and not on your penis.
You have no need to test at all.

I hope that is clear and eases any worrys

Yes as the condom wouldn't look like a condom or in most cases you will be left with ring around your penis

Re: Chance of catching HIV with protected sex?

No that's impossible, you should see your doctor of they continue, but it could just be the flu buddy, I can say it's not HIV so that's one thing you rule out.

Had you been wearing a condom and had it failed you would know immediately, as would your partner. Condoms are designed to fail catastrophically and leave no doubt that they have failed.

Buddy the fact you are even asking if a condom failed says it did not. If used correctly they offer 100% protection against an HIV infection.

You did not have an HIV exposure and whatever is wrong with you, if anything, is not HIV related.

Kevin.

Buddy if you feel that way find another doctor. Nobody online can offer you an online diagnosis of anything based on what you describe. It is impossible and would simply be a guess. Your health should never be guessed at. Having ailments that are of concern and then refusing to see a doctor about because you don't like him is not really in your own interest. Your health is your responibilty.

Please see a doctor, preferably one that you do like and have a face to face where a real examination and real tests can be carried out .

Kevin.

Re: Chance of catching HIV with protected sex?

I meant it as in he wouldn't see me and get the receptionist to turn away anyone who doesn't look ill
I've got to see him today though and he has prescribed me some pencillin. After a quick check up he did say its very unusual for groin glands and neck glands to swell at the same time. Will give it 2 weeks as recommended for glands to return to normal

Re: Chance of catching HIV with protected sex?

4 and a half months later, Inguinal glands still swollen, and suffering from fatigue.. Will have a saliva test within the next week as I hate needles and blood. Really concerned and not looking forward to the results really hope it is not reactive

You had protected sex, so should you be concerned, NO
