Am I Infected?

Apr 29, 2012

About a few months ago, maybe 3-4 months ago, I had unprotected sex with a girl. I'm not sure if she is HIV infected. But her vagina had a strong fishy odor and it produced some white colored powdery thing. About 1 month ago, I also had unprotected sex with another partner. Recently, she told me that she might be infected with std. The girl had a thick, white vaginal discharge that looks like cottage cheese and does not have a bad smell. About 3 weeks ago, I also noticed there's a few red round bumps on my penis shaft. I've been coughing very badly lately, accompanied with a flu and sore throat this few days. I also had skin rashes popping out on my skin for no particular reason. Lastly, my penis head is starting to itch as of recently. I also experience chest pains lately. What should I do?

Response from Ms. Southall

Hi What should you do? You should get tested! Not just for HIV but for all of the sexually transmitted infections. You need to find a health care provider and ask for help in diagnosing what is going on with your body.

Be well and get tested, Shannon

Is HIV transmission probable if I have unprotected anal sex and my VL is undetectable and CD4 600+ for last 10+ years?
scared to death
