Hi,
I feel that I made a greatest mistake in my life. I slept with a call girl recently. 3 days before that there was a small cut on my scrotum while I was trimming with an electric shaver.Before meeting I checked that the cut was healed (Thats what I thought Sad ). I used a condom properly covered.But now my throat started paining.Lymph nodes are not swollen. I am scared because of this as it might be a symptom of HIV. I am not able to eat or drink or do any work properly because of this mental tension. I am feeling very guilty and will never make these kind of mistakes again in my life.Please tell me what are the chances that I might be contacted with HIV (If that girl has HIV)? Now I understand the value of life Sad

Get tested ...not just for HIV but all STDs.You are more than likely OK but get tested and good for using protection.I think you will be fine.

Actually you need to wait 30 to 60 days after the risky sex but it wouldn't hurt to go and talk to someone.A counselor or psychiatrist. Thoughts of harming yourself is kind of premature,don't you think? I have lived with HIV/AIDS for many years and am fine.Life goes on.I have friends who have been HIV positive for over 30 years.It isn't the end of the world,believe me. Here is a few #s to call if your still feeling down.
