genital warts worry
      #275455 - 02/18/14 09:40 AM

Hi, I had unprotected sex with a guy who says he's a sex worker. I don't know what his status was but he doesn't seem to care.

It's past six weeks since that exposure. I'm going to get tested next week just to give an allowance if anything happens.

Now, I'm growing more anxious as the test day approaches because I just realized I had small bumps in my penis. I already have them before the exposure. It's around the shaft. Quite small and they don't come in clusters.

Can HIV enter through my genital warts? any answer is appreciated. I'm going nuts. Thanks

Unless the warts are open hiv cannot penetrate. But I would get checked for any stds and wear condons for the sake of your partners.

I may not be sure of that open warts thing when it happened but that kinda cleared things up. I read that CD4 cells can be found in warts and once it got contact with the virus, then the person is already infected.

Anyways, I'll have my test next week. I really hope I'm gonna be fine.

another question, can anxiety cause symptoms like swollen lymph nodes, joint pains?
