Tested, but still really worried.....
      06/27/13 11:05 PM

Let me explain my situation. Last year I had four sexual encounters with four different escorts. I used a condom for each encounter. However, in December a condom broke with one of the girls very briefly before I pulled out. I am an uncircumcised male. I also performed oral sex on this girl, which of course wasn't protected. Fast forward to this year. What really concerns me is that I have this clear, shiny like bump on my left cheek that I believe is molluscum contagiosum. I heard that this only shows up on the faces of people who are HIV positive. I also have a genital war below my groin area. Of course, these STDS can easily be transmitted by skin to skin contact. Since my encounter was in December, I went down to Planned Parenthood in May and got a rapid HIV finger prick test. It came back negative. I am still worried, though. The clear bump isn't going away and I was recently made aware that rapid HIV tests do not necessarily test for all types of HIV (like HIV-type 2).

Should I get tested again or just move on with my life?
