Response from Ms. Southall

Hi Condoms are effective in the prevention of HIV transmission, as long as they are used correctly and do not break or slip off completely. Oral sex carries the lowest risk of HIV transmission without protection, you used protection and therefore your risk of HIV transmission is extremely low to no risk. For the vaginal sex, using condoms again are effective in preventing transmission. I know that for both the sex workers and those purchasing sex, sometimes the price goes up when it is unprotected. First because some people don't like to use condoms and second it's a way of protecting oneself. If the sex worker charges more it may change the mind of the purchaser and it is just a more risky behavior to have unprotected sex with someone who has multiple partners because their risk of having any type of sexually transmitted infection is extremely high.

Your overall risk of HIV transmission is very small from what you have described. The symptoms you are describing can be from a multiple of different reasons, everything from allergies to a cold etc. I would recommend that if the symptoms continue that you seek health care evaluation but again not for HIV. Your risk of HIV transmission is extremely low.

Be well and stay safe, Shannon
