HIV Transmission and Education >> Am I Infected?


Inguinal lymph nodes
      06/24/04 07:37 PM

I was just wondering how big the inguinal lymph nodes should be. I may have been infected (unprotected oral without ejaculation, and he fingered my rectum and may have had pre-semen on his fingers, and I noticed slight bleeding rectally from a torn sphincter later in the day.) I am unaware of the guy's status, and don't have his phone number or anything to contact him, he said he was clean and recently tested.

But back to the lymph nodes. I have been trying to feel them for the past few days, and I believe I have been able to feel them recently. I may have been pressing too hard, which may be the cause for general tenderness in the area of the inguinal ligament. I just read that if they are over 2 cm it may mean a viral infection. They are definately smaller than that, so should I be worried? Thanks!
