HIV Transmission and Education >> Am I Infected?

am just curious to what symtoms that everyone had before or after they found out they were HIV positive? Because I am not. Well not yet I guess :(. I say this because a guy I slept with while me and my boyfriend were on a "BREAK" put a hole in the condom when we had sex. I have the basic symtoms slight weight loss, nausea, and feeling tired etc. I got tested but I am too scared to get the results. *sobs* I am too scared. :( I just wanted to know if anyone had or still has bruises under their eyes? Because I do it looks like someone blacked them. Please Post.
Thank You

What has happened in the past is the past; try not to dwell on the hole in the condom and try not to obsess. The symptoms you're experiencing aren't necessarily being caused by ARS; it could be stress, a passing cold/flu virus or something or any number of things.

Please get tested at 12 weeks after exposure, you'll know for sure. You can do this. Talk to us here in the forum and tell us how you're doing. People will write back and help you to get through this...

Good luck.

Well you told us about your syptoms that have been produced by stress....slight weight loss, nausea, and feeling tired etc. I except that dark circles under your eyes are from lack of a good night's sleep over a period of time.

Pick up your test results and then get a good night's sleep.
