Most certainly got infected

Around 5 of November I had an encounter with an escort. I only asked for oral sex and I wore a condom. However, then I noticed I had open cuts on my fingers and i touched her vagina on the exterior. I don't know if i was bleeding at he time but certainly the wound(s) got in contact with her vaginal fluids. I've read here in the forum that the fact of the contact being on the outside and the layers of skin regenerating would not let the virus in. However, after 2 weeks i went to see a doctor and he said i had around 5% chanches of being infected. I have/had most of the key symptoms:

dry lips - later the day i was infected and lasted for like 4 days
Rash - I had bobbles on the skin and a 3 separate kind of ''stains'' on face plus a booble on the back of the neck.
Red skin on the lateral skin of the penis
Enlarged lymph node on the neck.
Slight headache for one and a half days
I had a mouth sore that lasted like 2 days
Now i have myalgia on the legs. I feel it on the right, the on the lef leg.

Basically i lost the joy of life. I'm lost, don't know what to do, how to tell my parents. All my hope is gone. The doctors also said i had to wait 6 months for a conclusive test. Even tought i'm pretty sure i would accuse right now. This excrutiating pain for 6 months and then will be much worse. Thanks for listening. You're all i have right now to open up to.

Re: Most certainly got infected


Buddy you need to find another doctor, one that knows what he is talking about. The only risk of an HIV infection, sexually, is when an unprotected penis is inside a vagina or anus. HIV is an extremely fragile virus and once exposed to air becomes non-viable (non-infectious) hence the reason any bodily fluid outside of the human body will not pose a risk of an infection. With or without the cuts on your finger nobody, not a single person, in the entire 30 years HIV has been around as ever contracted HIV from hand to genital contact. You will not be the first.

Your ailments have got absolute nothing to do with HIV. You were not in the slightest way exposed to it, even if she had HIV which in itself is unlikely.
And no, even if you had been at risk, which you most certainly were not, you would not have to wait for 6 months. All HIV test are conclusive at 3 months and have been since 2004.

If you want to test for peace of mind, now, any result you get will be negative and will be conclusive.
