Dr. please help me, i am in west africa now, but in 2 weeks time i will be traveling back to india. Before i travel back i want get your advise. As i told you my earlier mail, i repeat - on end of jan. this year i had sex with a local girl with unknown. we had safe sex with 2 condom on it. after that i have checked the condom, it was without any hole. But before putting the condom that girl handled my penis for removing it from the underwear. My question is - i am afraid her finger were having some vaginal fluids and it infected me. Since last 3 weeks i am facing problem like - abdominal pain, fatigue, sore mouth, lose of appetite, night sweat some time and could not sleep.
i beg you - please atleat this time you answer me...

Assuming the latex condoms were used properly and did not break, your HIV-acquisition risk would be essentially nonexistent. Merely handling your trouser snake would not be considered an HIV-transmission risk, even if she had vaginal fluids on her hands. I see no cause for concern or HIV testing. However, if you remain fearful, get a single rapid HIV test at the three-month mark to permanently quell your unwarranted worries. The result will undoubtedly be negative.
Thanks for your donation to the Robert James Frascino AIDS Foundation (www.concertedeffort.org).
Be well. Stay well. Safe travels back to India.
