I think that you are a tremendous wealth of knowledge and are incredible for wanting to share it with us.
I think I have HIV, but I am really scared this is what happened:
I met this charming guy and had unprotected encounters with him, I will explain, basically we met up and he bought me alot of alcohol next thing I know we're outside and he is inserting his erect penis with no condom on into my vagina, being a virgin prior to this he didnt get in, it really hurt, I was close to passing out I was that drunk, next thing I know I am in his apartment and we're trying again but again he didnt get very far into my vagina, the thing is, he didn't ejaculate in me but I am wary because of the pre-cum that could have mixed with my fluids and now I am infected.
Soon after I developed a sore throat, I was constantly urinating a dark dark yellow urine and I had diarheaa every day. I even noticed a weird discharge coming out of my clitoris but not my vagina and it now feels irritated. A few days later I started to burn up, I had terrible fever and hot flushes, I had AC on but couldnt even feel it, I lost my appetite and kept having loose stools. About 7 days later exactly, I felt so faint and hot I had to go to the A&E, they told me I had a viral bug and I was very dehydrated but my blood tests looked fine, they put me on a drip and gave me paracetomol for my fever and sent me home. I felt much better, that night I drank 2 litres straight, since then my urine has returned to its natural colour (transparent)
Since then my throat got worse, thrush developed on my tongue and I still had fever, I went to the GP who told me I had a throat infection and put me on antibiotics, now I am suffering from night sweats and I think I have ARS, I am scared as hell, my 21st birthday is in a month and I dont even know what to do. The diarheaa has stopped but I have noticed a rash on my arms, and I received a text message from my GUM clinic asking me to call them to talk about my screening results. I am certain they are going to tell me some bad news, I just need help evaluating my risk, please.
I don't know how I am going to handle finding out I am positive, the anxiety is killing me, I am certain I must have lost alot of weight, Today is 16 days post exposure. My biggest fear is that this man had AIDs and his penis' contact with my vagina has caused me to contract HIV hence the violent reaction my body had in a short period of time,please help me
hi, couple of things, u need to eat right and drink lots of WATER
next; something u said made no sense, "then my throat got worse, thrush developed on my tongue and I still had fever, I went to the GP who told me I had a throat infection and put me on antibiotics"
SO PROBLEM is thrush is a fungal and requires ANTI-FUNGALS not antibiotics , as a matter to be concerned with antibiotics often cause fungal infections.
DARK URINE usually AND IN YOUR CASE means de-hydration which causes the urine to be concentrated
ON THE OTHER HAND high fever is indicative of infection and antibiotics are used, SO THE QUESTION that remains; did u really have thrush (fungal) in your mouth
I am guessing your immune system is poor and u don't eat right.
CALL the dr office back
GO to vitamin store and buy pro-biotics to take 100 billion cultures daily for a month BE SURE TO SEPARATE BY 3 HRS FROM ANY ANTIBIOTICS.
HIV is highly unlikely so stop worrying and call the dr office
Thanks for the advice, being so anxious and nervous I find it hard to eat at times, but I am trying to eat alot more and alot better too.
What I meant was more sore throat got more sore, I noticed thrush/ thick white coating on the back of my tongue and now my tongue is white and hairy. The GP told me that I have laryingitis and prescribed me some antibiotics. Since I am currently on them and about to finish my 7 day course my tongue has gotten worse which may explain your point about the anti fungals vs antibiotics.
My urine has returned to its normal transparent colour and I urinate alot less.
I am petrified right now, as I am writing this I am waiting to hear from the GUM clinic with my sexual health screening results, they usually text you a standard message to say that your results are negative but in my case they want to speak to me, I am praying to God that I will be okay.
I will take your advice regarding the pro-biotics tablets which I will take on after my course of antibiotics is finished.
