What are the chances
      #101027 - 07/09/04 02:06 PM

So, I got extremely drunk and ending up sleeping with a prostitute that was on her period. She put a condom on me. But, I am curious, because 1 week later, I have pain in my groin area where my lymph nodes are and my neck nodes are large.

Give me some sort of statistics to calm me down please..

HIV is a hrd diseasee to catch, if a CONDOM was used then you are fine. If not you need to be tested at 3 months.

Please refrain from both ALCOHOL and PROSTITUTES.

Chapter 3 , Page 35

Throughout the world, people can contract HIV infection in three possible ways:

1) Through sexual contact, either homosexual or heterosexual. Heterosexual contact is the leading means of HIV transmission worldwide, and the fastest growing mode of HIV transmission in the nation.

2) Through the contact with blood or other bodily fluids, bloood products, or tissues of an infected person. this usually occurs by inculation of HIV through needle sharing among users of illicit drugs; much more rarely, by accidental needle stick or splashes of blood on mucous membranes; and extremely rarely, through sustained contact of infected blood with breaks in the skin.

3) Through transfer of the virus from an infected mother to her infect before or during birth, or shortly after birth through breast-feeding. This mother-to-infect transfer is also known as perinatal transmission. Perinatal transmission is in rapdi decline in the US.

Transfer of a virus from mother to infant is known as vertical transmission, which refers to transfer of the virus from one generation to the next. This term, along with horizontal transmission is used often in the scientific literature. horizontal transmission refers to transfer of the virus from one person to another in the population. Sexual transmission and blood-to-blood transmission are both examples of horizontal transmission.

Free HIV particles have been isolated from blood, semen, vaginal fluid, and breast milk. Other body fluids in which HIV is found include cerebrospinal fluid, which bathces the brain and spinal cord; synoviral fluid, which batches the surfaces of joints; pleural fluid, which occupies the narrow space between the lungs and the chest wall; and amniotic fluid, which surrounds the fetus. Researchers have also isolated HIV from saliva, tears, feces, and urine, in which it is sometimes present in very small amounts. No cases of HIV transmission through these fluids have been fully documented.

Condom was definitely used. I am just crapping my pants since she was on her period. Could blood have come off the condom when removing it and gotten on me? Oh this sucks. I think I will abstain from alcohol from now on since it makes bad decisions.

Does anyone have any statistics on this stuff.
