i am 18years old, and i had my first sexual intercourse a week ago with a prostitute. I used a condom which didnt brake(the condom was hers-durex and i removed is with bare hand. i had a scar in my finger, with which i removed the condom, but it was 80% ok). However, some friends of mine, worried me about contracting hiv. So, i had a look at the hiv symptoms a few hours afther the intercourse and i started having some symptoms. the first symptom appeared about nine hours afther the intercourse (37degree fever)-maybe it was from anxiety... furthermore, regarding night sweats, i only sweet when i go to sleep, but as soon as i sleep everything is ok(i also feel that sweat more than usual)! finally, i had diahrrea this week twice(one on sunday and one on thursday- the intercourse took place on thursady). i also feel a bit tired-fatigue. is it possible for the hiv symptoms to appear so quickly afther the exposure to the virus?? I m thinking of having a PCR-HIV test. Am i over-reacting?? and secondly, how long after a supsicious intercourse, does the pcr-hiv test produce reliable conclusions?? Is it possible to contract hiv by womens sperm-scar on the finger??
i would like to thank you in advance.
well, i had the hiv-cmia test done in 3.5 weeks (i know its pretty early) which came back negative!!! my doc told my that it can dedect the virus from 2 weeks time. i'm now gonna get tested in a few months
