Need Help....Scared
      #27859 - 02/07/02 09:07 AM

Ok...Here are the facts.
11 days ago went to a bathhouse.
Had a guy give me head.
Another guy jack me off using saliva as lube.
Another guy licked my [censored] very roughly. (Burned after)
licked a guys ball.
I am now running a low grade fever. Have a pain above my penis (upper left side before stomach). Also had a pan for a day under my left arm (about mid rib cage).
I am very scared.
1. What is my risk of being infected?
2. How early do symptoms begin?

I will get tested as soon as possible. Please help me. I am scared!

Dear Anonymous,

I am also Worried Well, also very scared... Let me tell you what I know about ARS (acute retroviral syndrom) first. USUALLY it takes place within 2-4 weeks after the exposure, sometimes (rarely) 6 weeks. Most people (96%) with ARS do have fever. It does tend to be quite high (over 38 perhaps)? But there is no simple answer. In general, oral sex is RELATIVELY safe, much safer than anal. Check out

Hope this helps. I am not saying try to battle your fear and anxiety. I know how difficult it is. You are not alone. Take care. I do hope u will be alright.


If u do want to contact me and share your experiences, pls write to

Sorry, forgot to tell you that if you are RECEIVING oral sex (i.e. somebody is sucking your [censored]), then your risk is practically negligible.

Hope that helps!
