i am worried

Mar 20, 2013

Hello doctor, it has been past six week since i had protected sex with a sex worker. it was only for half an hour. Before vaginal intercourse, she gave me blowjob, and it feels like she is biting the condom and i am worried about the condom broke. Nevertheless, we had vaginal intercourse and i am the insertive partner. during this six week, i only have runny nose, cough, sore throat, and headache. i am not sure for any other symptom, but i dont have any swollen lymph nodes or any loss appetite and diarhhea. Should i worry about any hiv transmission. Please help me.

Response from Mr. Cordova

Hi there:

Your symptoms have nothing to do with HIV. The condom protected you from HIV. If you are worried that the condom broke then you can go in for an HIV test at the 90 day mark.

In health,


please help sir
