Really Worried
      #268885 - 11/09/12 05:36 AM

So in August 2011, I had protected intercourse with a sexworker. Developed flu symptoms (cough runny nose, fever etc..). This made me worried and I tested at 4 weeks, which was negative. I decided to test again in March 2012, in which the test was still negative. Exactly 4 weeks after the second test, I developed a very high fever, muscles aches, chills and a very sore stomach (Which lasted for about a day and a half). I am worried that these symptoms I experienced are ARS? and the I may have been infected from the lancet needle from the HIV rapid test. The person who conducted the test was also HIV positive. I remember shaking his hand before doing the test. Is it possible that some of his bodily fluids mayhave been transferred to my finger tip , which was then transferred into the blood via the lancet needle?

I've been worrying so much lately and I just need your opinions.

are you for real? this is ridiculous. It's time for you to educate yourself about HIV and the modes of transmission:

if you have had unprotected anal, vaginal or oral sex, then this is the place for you. there are other forums for phobias and panick attacks.
