afraid plz help
Mar 7, 2013
Dear doctors amd ready for a donation to the foundation.please make my mind clear am really tensed and afraid due to the fear i posted somany times and didnt even get a reply. Dr i had a vaginal intercourse with a csw on nov 30 2012.am uncircumsised and during the intercourse the condom slipped and may b the vaginal fluids touched my innerforeskin.later i had a white patch on the innerforeskin which went off leaving dark marks..after 1month i had fatigue..mild headaches and i can feel ma lymph nodes on my neck and armpits. I didnt had a fever or anything..and the neck is getting pained all the times.even after 93days after the incident am havibg the pain in the neck. Does it seem to be due to hiv? What are the odds in getting infected in this incident?
Response from Ms. Southall
Hi Because of the condom slipping and we know the risk does increases slightly for someone who is uncircumcised I would recommend testing. The guidelines for testing are to be initially tested at 3 weeks and then again at 90 days. As long as there are no other exposures during this time then the results are conclusive. You need to also remember that there are other sexually transmitted infections out there that you need to be concerned about as well. With having symptoms I would recommend following up with your health care professional for evaluation.
Be well, Shannon
