Scared about HIV
      #132565 - 01/04/05 02:12 PM

Hello, I am a self-proclaimed worrier about HIV but I cannot stop thinking of the possibility of having HIV. 6 weeks ago I had sex with a pro and ever since I have been worrying about HIV. I have read enormous amounts of info and I know it was low-risk but that does not do anything to subside my fear.

Trying to get through the waiting period is the worst part and I would like to share my thoughts with someone who is in the same position.

Please, if you want to talk outside of a public forum e-mail me at concernedabouthiv@canada.com

I want to share my story and hear about someone else and hopefully we can help each other through this horrible time together.

as stated in other posts, Why do you have to degrade a woman because she is a pro. most all pro's test and get fired if they test HIV+, the testing is usually done in front of the boss with a 30minute saliva test once a month. So why since it was a pro do you guys insist that you are having ARS? The person you have sex with has to be HIV+ for there to be a chance, and it is much easier for her to be infected by you then you from her even unprotected.
Just make sure and have protected sex and the worry will be taken care of. And a pin hole is not a condom breaking, if a condom breaks it is catastrophic and you will know it.

GMan,

Thanks for your input. But I am not degrading her just because she was a pro. That is her choice and I am not judging. However, the fact remains that she would be in fact exposed on a more regular basis and therefore would be likelier to have at some point contacted someone who was HIV+. Truthfully, her status is unknown but the fact remains her exposure is a greater probability!

Second, you say most pros are tested. This was not an American pro.....this was in Eastern Europe. How do you know then that she tests regularly?

you can not relay on any one else to test reliably. You are responsible for your own health. Get tested.
