HIV concern

Dec 9, 2013

Dear Sir, I had protected sex with sex worker,I really worry that I might have HIV infected, I cannot sleep well at night and have difficulty to breathe, is the difficulty to breathe a sympthom of HIV? PLEASE let me know. THANKS.

Response from Mr. Cordova

Hi there,

Using a condom for each and every act of penetrative sex will prevent HIV transmission. Difficulty breathing is not a symptom of HIV.

Bottom line: I do not think transmission occurred in this situation.

In health,


please I am so worry help me
Please reply sir
