I am about to complete my 90 day after the risky exposure with a prostitute , please suggest the list of test I should go for before I visit the doctor. I want to go for all the possible test before I visit the Doctor. I am experiencing night sweats, exhaustion, skin rash and headache presently.

OK last time. You did not have a risky exposure with a prostitute. You used protection. Would you classify the same experience as 'risky' if it had been a girl you had dated a few times and finally got around to having sex with her?

Too make sure you didn't get one of the MUCH easier STD's to get, I would suggest you get a full STD panel. I hear it doesn't hurt too much when they stick the swab up your penis.

Confusing??? ... you are going to the doctor, he will test you. What is there to do now for tests ... just go and get it over with. Or is this like taking a bunch of cold medication to home cure yourself before going to a doctor ... or the old cliche I like best "cleaning the house before the maid shows up!"
Doctors appointment ... Good Luck!!!

Thanks crabman,
Coming back to it. I too feel I used protection correctly but after all that happened from the 5th week onwards I felt I should get myself tested. Does STD panel include HIV test too ?

I am in a small town in South Asia where we know each other so I am going to a different city where I will be there for around six days. So I wanted to get everything checked. And stigma and discrimination is still very much there.

just so you know, an STD panel test does not include HIV. that is a separate test you'll need to request. i'm glad you're getting tested so you can finally get a clear answer and peace of mind.

however, this is the same non-exposure you've been asking about for almost a month now. you were answered multiple times and reassured you were not at risk for HIV. but it seems you ignored all that and focused on your symptoms, which again mean nothing. hopefully, your negative test will get you to stop worrying and you'll move on.

if you come back still asking about your symptoms, i will have to ban you.
