PLEASE HELP !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Feb 27, 2014

Dear Dr

This past September I performed unprotected oral on a guy who's hiv status I do not know, about a month later I got a rash on my chest and back. My doctor said it was pityriasis rosea, and that he was not concerned about it being linked to hiv. Now about 5 months after my little laps in judgment I am noticing that my lymph nodes are slightly swollen and have been for quite some time. Also my stomach has been churing on and off for the past few weeks, no pain or cramping, just exessive rumbling and gas.

So here is my question, in your opinion..... 1) What was my risk for contracting hiv, should I even be this worried? 2) Are any of my symptoms hiv related? 3) Could anxiety cause the swollen glands and intestinal rumbling?

Response from Mr. Glenn

Thanks for your questions,

1) Very minimal 2) No, not specifically 3) ABSOLUTELY

Hope this helps,


P.S. Sounds like you already got a professional's opinion. Trust it! Just remember that all sexually active people should be tested on a regular basis for HIV/STDs. But there's nothing (NOTHING) high risk about your situation.

I gave oral sex and tasted a little pre-cum
How many times do I have to ask a question before it's answered?
