Bruising does not equal HIV.

Have you had unprotected sex recently? Don't over-react to symptoms. Get the facts first and then get an expert opinion on the actual risk level. You could be freaking out for nothing!

Trust me -- it's not worth it! ... and a huge waste of time.

I know im not concerned over my risk since it was really low, im just asking if bruising was a symptoms, but i think u meant No??? even if i had ars bruising wouldnt be related to hiv right??? i mean im not paranoic over my symptoms anymore and panicking for my low risk, but it can't get out of my head until i see the negative result after 3 months. i know it will be neg., it has to be, god bless me it will be, or else all i can say is that i am indeed the unluckiest person on this planet. so anyways im just asking, is it or not bruising a symptom of hiv, cuz ive been getting numerous bruises , some out of nowhere(without hitting anything.) Please reply.

Sounds like you're pretty paranoid to me.

Listen -- a bruise is just that -- a bruise! -- and NOT a symptom of HIV. You had a low risk encounter, so why are you worried about HIV? I've been in your shoes so I know how it feels, but believe me, quit wasting your time looking for symptoms that have NOTHING TO DO WITH HIV!!!

If you're worried, get tested and put your mind at ease. Trust me, do not allow this HIV paranoia to cycle in your head -- it will drive you crazy -- and quit checking your body for symptoms -- your mind is very powerful and you'll find HIV symptoms if you want to. It's all in your head!

Go get tested, ease your worries and move on with your life. Write back and let us know when your tests come back NEGATIVE.
