I have extreme anxiety about HIV. I currently have been in a relationship with a woman for two years, she pentrated me with a dildo, but I think I may have come in contact with her vaginal fluid while she was using the dildo on me. We also give eachother oral sex. Ive also been under an extreme amount of stress and have constant anxiety attacks. While I have had no flu symptoms, I noticed some white stuff in my mouth. I then began on a mad search after realizing thrush is a symptom of hiv, but can also be stemmed from stress and malnutrition. As being stressed I have stopped eating completely so I have lost weight. I have become so obsessed with doing research for hiv, I noticed that I had 3 pimples that looked rashy on my chest, now I'm itchy all over. I'm terrified, I don't know if this is HIV or stress. I don't know what to do. I will also say that I have asthma and use an inhaler often, so I don't know if this is reason for thrush.
From the description of the history, the only issue here, is your psychological thinking and anxiety that you have HIV.
First and foremost, the chances of being infected with HIV via sharing a dildo or other sex toys is very less likely.
HIV is diagnosed based on the serological detection in the blood samples, and not from the symptoms that you âmight ââbe having. A person after exposure to HIV can get âtested as early as 4 weeks to 12 weeks with the ELISA for âHIV ââantibody test. â
â90% of normal individuals who have HIV âexposure, will seroconvert within 4-6 weeks. The âsensitivity âof the ELISA âtest is 99.9%. â
To clear your doubts of HIV, you might get yourself tested with a HIV antibody test, which will help you get over the past and relieve all your anxiety.
You might also consult with a psychiatrist or your doctor who can counsel you properly.
