Just a couple questions please

I had protected vaginal intercourse with a sex worker on the 21st of July.

Im now noticing small raised bumps on my arms chest and back. Not very dark (im brown skinned) There are not many... less than ten in total. They usually go away within a couple days. Im not experiencing any other symptoms except for a mild fever, which I think is from a cold I have right now. I have not tested for HIV, and the thought terrifies me.

Is it too long a period for me to experience symptoms? have you ever seen that before?

Protected sex means zero risk of HIV. Whatever you are seeing has nothing to do with HIV.

Re: Just a couple questions please

Are ulcers on the glans of the penis common? I feel some mild pain there and cannot check since I have phimosis and the foreskin cannot be retracted.

I know that I had protected sex but I cant seem to get over it. I keep worrying if something went wrong... or if the sex worker had hiv and made holes in the condoms to get back at people... I dont know.

Is it common to have symptoms four months after exposure?

Buddy this is now the third thread you have started about having protected sex. You were not at a risk of an HIV infection and your irrational thinking about somebody making holes in condoms to "get back at you" cannot be addressed here.

If you continue to have these irrational and paranoid thoughts I would suggest that rather than posting on HIV forums you seek the professional counselling you need to get over this and address your phobias and fears.

And no it is not common for somebody who was not is the slightest way exposed to HIV to have symptoms four months after a zero risk episode.
