Scared Young Girl...Here is my situation....please
      #205065 - 08/27/06 12:45 AM

I am having my first HIV test in a few days. Even though I tend to overly stress myself out, I am extremely worried that I may have HIV. About two years ago, I had unprotected anal sex with a man who's status I do not know. After the encounter, i never had any type of flu-like symptoms. I know this does not mean I am safe. Then, about 9 months ago, I gave unprotected oral sex to a man who's status I also do not know. Again, I did not have any flu symptoms. The only time I began to get sick was when I spend hours researching on the internet. I am worrying myself sick of the risk here. Can someone please give me some feedback

Get tested NOW for the last anal encounter. The oral you are probably ok..but the other was rather risky. Know your status...

Agree with sadface - the unprotected anal sex was your risky encounter - please get tested. Please also practice safe sex from now on - protect yourself and others.

Given how long it has been from both encounters you will have conclusive results now. But always remember an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Since you can't undo what is already done just learn from this experience and remember how anxious you feel now worring about not using protection. Good luck with your test let us know how it turns out.

i felt the same way girl....i always had the mentality that "it would never happen to me" until i got sick and started reaserching on the internet.... i dont know you, but i think i had a very high risk sexual lifestyle sleeping with 6 diffrent women unprotected and to be honest, not beliving in condoms... all i can say is try to occupy yourself with things to do maybe exercise and stop looking thru all the negative things hiv has to offer, but look thru all the positive things that people are doing.... my journey aint over i just got my 8 week negative result after all the things that happened to me....your not alone....take care and dont stress out aiiight! if you want to talk email me at kalawr@lcc19.navy.mil....ill be prayin for you tonite!

Thank you all so much for replying to me. I have no one else to turn to right now. I am a great person, come from an established family......and I am sticking to myself right now. I have my test done wednesday. Please keep me in your thoughts. I am just a nervous wreck.
