Could I really be infected??? Anxiety is killing me....
      04/30/13 06:10 PM

About eight weeks ago I had a sexual encounter with a random female (I am a male) I met at a party. She gave me unprotected oral sex, and I gave her unprotected oral sex as well. We then proceeded to have vaginal sex but I wore a condom throughout the encounter (It did get a tad loose, but It never came off and my penis never came in directly in contact with her genital area. The next day she gave me unprotected oral sex again, and I did "finger" her too.

Now the reason for the post, exactly two days later I came down with a fever, a night sweat, and swollen gland. Since I am a natural hypochondriac I panicked and immediately thought I had HIV. I came down with depression for about two weeks. I went to the doctor and I got medicine prescribed, and all the symptoms are gone (I think). My lower right side of the abdomen was also hurting a bit, and I had a tad of sprain on my groin when I played soccer. I do exercise a lot however.

What are my actual risks for infection? I still need to wait at least 4 more weeks for testing, but my anxiety is killing me and taking the best of me. Every time I read a post of the HIV symptoms online I feel worse and really bad.
