What's the chance?
      #7335 - 07/19/00 01:54 PM

I had an encounter five years ago that still scares me!!!!
I was seventeen and was date raped by someone that I knew at college. He initially penetrated me without a condom but then put one on. About two and a half to three months later, I developed the flu. High fever, coughing with mucus, fatigue . . . the whole nine yards. Now this was the dead of winter on a college campus (where colds/flus spread like wildflower) but, I have myself convinced that this was ARS? Is 2-3 mo. later too late. I got better after a week and have been healthy (as far as I know) since.
After this encounter, I dated someone for a long time who, two years into our relationship and one after unprotected sex with me, tested negative. That reassured me a bit, but it's 5 years later and I am still worried. I will be tested soon but was wondering if I would be showing any symptoms at 5 years. I've never had a swollen node in my life. What do you think my chances of being + are? I am getting tested soon, I just wanted some feedback! Thanks in advance.
