Don't Know What is happening
      #17989 - 05/25/01 12:52 AM

I was involved in a sexual intercourse with one girl who HIV is unknown. I had some symptoms after about 10 days of the intercourse. Sore Throad, lymp nodes on my neck, legs and armspit toward my chest. I got fatigue after about 5 days and hurt on my joints, did not feel I have energy to live. At the last fews day before the end of the second week, I feel my stomatch doesn't working well, it kind of boiling inside and it stand still upto now. My tonge being seen some lupms at the very end of it, also I noticed those lupms on the back of the tonge as well. I did used condom and did not slip off(I'm afraid it break or having a hole on) and after 2 days I noticed red spot on my foreskin. It developed and spreading around the whole foreskin area. I went to see doctor and also did my blood test 3 days after the first week, it's Neg and also I think he did P24 antigen test as well, it showed normal(I read the info from this site found the test does not be that accurate and not recommended to dianogse for primary HIV infection). Any body has any idea about my status now and will I do another test after the first month of exposure? I saw they said that 25 days is an average time for HIV virus to developed. Is there any symptom that you can tell me about diarrhea?
Please give me all advice that you can do.

All i can say is that none can tell you if you are HIV+ just by guessing for your symptoms, they could be related to stress or some other virus.

Not all people who is infected experienced those symptoms.

The only way to know for sure if you are infected or not is by getting an antibody test at least 3 months after exposure and move on with your life.

Good luck, i'll keep you in my prayers , God Bless you and take care.
