Man My Mind Hurts
      #235227 - 01/13/08 10:43 PM

To anyone who has some comforting words:

I have been to the body on several occasions after several stupid acts of sexual activity with strippers, sex workers, whatever you want to call them. I know the risks of HIV transmission and have always followed proper safer sex techniques but ALWAYS worry about the outcome afterward and spend months stuing over symptoms my crazy head makes up. But this time I can't believe one of the symptoms that is occurring.

About 5 1/2 months ago I received oral sex from a stripper and ejaculated in her mouth. She was of South American desent and didn't speak good english. Anyway, I had severe headaches for about 3 months after exposure and now after about 5 months the hair on the top of my hands are disappearing rapidly. I went to my dermatologist and he immediately diagnosed me with Alopecia Apeata. What did I do as soon as I got home (as I always do in times past as it relates to HIV) I got on the internet and guess what - this condition is associated with a recent infection of HIV that occurs a few months after being infected. What the f@#$? Can someone please talk to me here?

On another note I did take a Orasure (mouth swab) test 4 1/2 months after exposure that came back negative. But I did not keep the swab in my mouth 2 minutes as I should have, maybe 15 seconds, could this of created a false negative?

I'm very worried. Thanks to all who may respond.
