|Night sweats paranoia
May 20, 2009
I had brief interlude with a masseuse in canada 2 years ago that included protected sexual intercourse, received protected oral and she massaged my prostate and up until now have had zero symptoms but recently i have had anxiety and stress and started getting minor night sweats not soaking ones. I am freaking out and stressed out which I fear is resulting in other symptoms such as loss of appetite. Am i overreacting?

Are you overacting? Yep!
Your HIV-acquisition risk from your "massage plus benefits" two years ago is negligible assuming the latex condom was used properly and did not break. If you remain worried, get a single HIV-antibody test. The results will undoubtedly be negative. Testing may be the most effective and efficient way to put any residual worries permanently to rest.
Good luck. Be well.
