Im scared

May 22, 1998

I had unprotected sex with a girl. I didn't use any protection, but I also didn't ejaculate inside her. Seven days later I found a pimple at the base of my penis and noticed that my right inguinal lymph node is sore to the touch. Its not warm, red, or buldging just sore. This is the only unprotected sex I have ever had. So my question is would a lymph node be sore in only seven days from the HIV virus, or could it be an STD of some sort. PLEASE HELP. UTMOST DISCRETION

Response from Mr. Shernoff

I am sorry that you are worried as a result of an unsafe sexual episode, but not being a physician I am not qualified to respond to your question. Please resubmit your question to our prevention expert as well as to our MD who is a treatment specialist. This way you can get the most up to date and accurate information about your question. I am sorry that I can not help you.

Michael Shernoff, MSW
