Of course I'm not just going because of these concerns. It's just that there have been articles saying that HIV and other STDs & STIs could possibly be transmitted this way.

I've also had strep throat in November, then bronchitis about a month later, and 3 instances of oral herpes (although I had cases of oral herpes since way before I was at any risk). I had an extremely sore throat and swollen glands at Christmas; my throat is still a bit sore and my glands are a little swollen. My boyfriend, who has been with about 5 women before me and used to inject heroin with new syringes, tested negative in March 2005 (our relationship started in June) and comes from a family of doctors. His mother is taking us both to be tested at the hospital where she works and his grandmother also gave me a form for a complete physical. Both aren't very worried.

I am normally a very rational person, but please realize that stress makes people paranoid and I just want to cover my bases. I also take into account that by nature I have a weak immune system and my stressing about this doen't make me any stronger and can cause these "symptoms".
