Please Help -- Very Worried of HIV Risk

Hello

I made a huge mistake a couple of weeks back. I solicited the services of a prostitue.
I had protected vaginal intercourse with her and unportected oral intercourse (giving and receiving). The condom definitely did not slip out and i dont think it tore either. I have read that there is little to no risk to HIV from Oral.


I got a rapid test on day 14. it came negative. But not sure if the antibodies had started developing.
I got a DNA PCR test on the same day as well. Still awaiting results. What are my chances. IM VERY SCARED.. PLEASE PLEASE HELP !

Re: Please Help -- Very Worried of HIV Risk

Oral sex is not a risk of HIV, their are 10 threads like this every week, so your not alone in your concerns but they are not valid. salvia dose not carry any active HIV antibodys, so its no different to having a kiss from her.

You do not need to test further, hope that helps.

Re: Please Help -- Very Worried of HIV Risk

Thanks Apollo123. What is bothering me are these symtoms. Sore Throat, Burning sesation through my body and night sweats. I woke up 2 times last night sweating. I know I am a bit of a hypochondriac and this incident is causing extreme anxiety and stress. Could these symtome be because of that anxiety and stress?
In any case I will get my DNA PCR results back tomorrow. Im praying they are negative.

Re: Please Help -- Very Worried of HIV Risk

your symptoms are being caused by either anxiety and stress
or by one of the many bacterial or viral infections that are out there.

you never exposed yourself to hiv in the first place so
any test you take will be negative.
move on from it.

Re: Please Help -- Very Worried of HIV Risk

this may sound very stupid to you guys... and it may be too.. but I took the same sex worker that i had sex with for a rapid test and it came out negative (15 days after I had intercourse with her).
Just had one other question... what is the window period for a rapid blood test. (the one that gives results in 15 minutes).. is it 2 weeks or 4 weeks?

Re: Please Help -- Very Worried of HIV Risk

You have no reason to be testing yourself or your partner- you could NOT have had an exposure to HIV. What do you think PROTECTED means? You're only wasting time and emotional energy worrying about a non-existent risk.
