Answer

Hi,

Your cheating ex-boyfriend's best friend rocked the Kasbah four times in one night! WOW. I'll bet he's Italian, right? Sweetie, maybe you should stick with Mr. Sex Machine. I mean any dude who can do a no-pants dance four times in one night has got to be a real catch, right? (Either that or we need to re-check his dose of Viagra).

As for your HIV-related concerns, it's true that unprotected sex "once, twice, three times (may not make you) a lady"! Oh yea, it was four times! Unprotected horizontal tangos do place you at some degree of risk for STDs, including HIV. Why not ask Tony Testosteroni to get HIV tested? If he tests negative, that would very significantly decrease your chances of being exposed/infected. The only remaining worry would be that he was in his "window period." However, the chances of that are remote at best. For a definitive answer, you'll need an HIV-antibody test at the three-month mark.

Your "symptoms" are not worrisome for HIV acute retroviral syndrome (ARS).

Good luck!
