7736596 tn?1393779498 November of 2013, I was screened medically for Dubai residency for any infectious diseases and thankfully I was free from any of them. I came to India soon after that. I have had a couple encounters since my arrival here and 99.99% I have only been into insertive oral NOT anal & never receptive at any given point, more so because I am much of a top. I am currently also going through counselling & therapy for a drug withdrawal (No Needles) very severely.

Avatar m tn Hi there - No, herpes is not the same thing as HPV, though its easy to get confused. HPV = human papiloma virus - causes warts and can lead to cervical cancer HSV = herpes simplex virus - two types - 1 and 2 - 1 can be oral or genital, 2 is almost always genital - causes blisters, sores, lesions, paper-cut sores. There are two type of hpv as well - high risk and low risk. The high risk kind is what can lead to cervical cancer, and men can have that and have no signs or symptoms.
Avatar n tn Those are not any kind of symptoms of HIV. You did put yourself at risk so you should test.
Avatar m tn Overall the number is around 6 women without protection in 8 years. I have never had any symptoms. I know that symptoms dont show for a while. The only real symptoms is I get night sweats, but that only started when i got my air conditioner for some reason The last time I had sex without a condom was the first week of May. One of the women I slept with w/o a condom was scottish and she was a lesbian. That was a little over 2 years ago.

Avatar f tn Thank you. I will have my test done to make sure i am alright.
Avatar n tn Well hes not exactly absurd for worrying about HIV, most HIV symptoms are Flu-like symptoms such as sore throat, sore muscles, fever, etc. I would be worrying too if those symptoms showed up after sex. Definately get tested.
Avatar f tn just curious... there seems to be a theme here of men (like myself) who had "protected" sex and fear they might have hiv and after testing find themselves to be negative... they post here (as I did) to be reassured about their lack of risk and to trust their results... yet all of them (like me) seem to have symptoms in various degree... my question is what do you make of this? physcological? or other?
Avatar m tn Nevertheless, this result can vary for different cases. Generalized information on HIV symptoms in men after 6 months forms the subject matter of this article. HIV Symptoms in Men after 6 Months: Facts to Know To understand the progression of HIV symptoms in men, we've got to analyze symptoms in the first few months (2 -3 months) and then the later months (after 5 - 6 months).

Avatar m tn Was this risky for HIV? And after that, I was sexual with 2 other men who fingered around the scratch, after they touched their preseminal fluids and penises! Was this risky?! I have engaged in unprotected oral and fingering, that's it. But I am still nervous!!!!!
Avatar m tn tell me touiching breast boobs for 10minutes her buttocks her back can transmit hiv tell me hiv can be transmitted through clothes i am having fever sore throat infection night sweating after 3 weeks exposure and green sputum headache muscle and joint pain am i hiv positive ididnt do any sexual intercourse why am i having ars symptoms tell me p24antigen is high after 2 or weeks very worried
Avatar m tn And a general point we have made repeatedly on this forum is that symptoms rarely are reliable indicators either for or against HIV. Even the most typical ARS or AIDS symptoms are nonspecific, i.e. they occur more commonly in other, usually minor medical conditions. If your case, it sounds like you and your partner have had allergies or just an unlucky series of colds. So you are entirely correct that the answer to your anxiety about this is to be tested for HIV.
