exposure 10 days ago--prophylaxis drug an option?
      11/20/06 04:33 PM

I'm happily married and monogamous for the past 10 years. Ten days ago 5 minutes of drunken stupidity could have changed all that.

I had gone to a strip club (which is a rarity for me). I got way too drunk and stupid, and got a lap dance. The girl asked if I wanted to be "teased" and I said yes. Before I knew it, she had me unzipped and inserted. I pulled out quickly and left, but I'm now terrified.

I have developed sore lymph nodes in my groin, and yesterday woke up with a bad sore throat.

I'm terrified! I called to doctors today, but most said I need to wait 3 months before I can be tested...surely there must be something to do sooner?? As this is a very recent exposure, are prophylaxis drugs an option??

any advice is appreciated!
guilty, scared, and oh so stupid...;
