I live in New York City and foolishly went to an Asian Massage Parlor. At the end of the massage, she asked me what I wanted. Being so aroused and not thinking rationally, I foolishly said I wanted intercourse. She proceeded to put a condom on and we had protected sex. Upon completion, I went to take the condom off, which was still in tact, however i noticed that there was a lot of vaginal fluid and lube at the base of my penis where the condom wasn't fully covering. I immediately became worried because I had shaved my pubic area and part of my penis earlier that morning (12 hours between shaving and intercourse). I didn't see any open cuts but I am very worried that the combination of shaving 12 hours earlier and her fluids touching my exposed skin has left me susceptible for HIV infection. This experience took place 2 1/2 days ago (approx 63 hours ago) and now I feel as though i have a sore throat and minor cold. I am so unbelievably worried and disappointed in myself. My fear is that there may have been minor nicks or cuts that weren't visible to the eye that could have been exposed. How long after shaving would the skin begin to "repair" itself and close any cuts or wounds? Please help!! Any information or advice you could provide would be greatly appreciated.

Also, I know it needs to be started within 72 hours, but do you feel I should start HIV prophylaxis? I know its a very aggressive treatment which could leave me quite ill while taking the medications, but is it something I should consider, or am I being overly cautious? Thanks again for your time and effort
