The reason for my asking though is that, whilst I'm knowledgeable that HIV
is largely asymptomatic, I can't help but feel I have acquired some of the early symptoms
frequently mentioned on many of the posts.
Largely out of character, I had protected intercourse with a sex worker at a bachelor party. Without giving too much detail, intercourse didn't last too long (less than 5 minutes) and the condom was still in tact as I withdrew upon climaxing.
