|Had gay protected anal sex and unprotected oral.
Aug 27, 2011
Hi Dr. Francisco.
Hi Dr. Francisco. I was at San Francisco 6 days ago and went to the Castro District. I met this man and we drank for a while. Then we headed back to his place. We had oral sex, he gave me oral sex for a while but I only gave it for 5 seconds or so because I felt unconfortable about it. He didn't ejaculate in my mouth nor do I think there was any pre-cum involved. Then we proceeded to have protected anal sex. Afterwards he finishhed me off with annilingus but i did not give him annilingus. After that night I've been having intense fear and anxiety that I could have caught an STD or HIV. I've felt anxiety ever since and am filled with regret. Probably the worst anxiety i've felt in my life. My right lymph node under my jaw is swollen and i have a slight sore throat. Are these signs of HIV or any STD's? thank you Dr. Francisco for everything you do. God bless you!!!
