Response from Ms. Southall

Hi Having protected sex, prevented HIV transmission. The one thing to not forget about is all of the other sexually transmitted infections that can and cannot be prevented from condoms. You may have also picked up a viral infection. My recommendation to you is to follow up with your health care provider to assess the symptoms and receive treatment.

Be well and stay safe, Shannon
