Hi I have recently returned from a trip from amsterdam where I foolishly had very brief anal sex with a transvestite prostitute. This prositute was one of the window workers, I hear in amsterdam they have regular tests however this is not easing my worry. He/she went to penetrate then i turned around and realised she did not have a condom on i mentioned this and then she proceeded to put one on, however I was drunk at the time and to be perfectly honest I cannot rememeber if I checked to see f she defenitely had one on, I do however remember her grabbing a condom. We we then proceeded to have anal sex very briefly not even for 5 minutes. I know for sure she did not ejeaculate inside me as of course I would of known, whether this is because she did not ejaculate or because she was wearing a condom i am unsure.

When I returned from amsterdam 2 days after the incident i had 3 or 4 very small itchy pimples on my arm, are hiv spots itchy? However the hotel I stayed in everyone was complaining they had been bitten by bedbugs and the hotel reviews also state this. As well as this I have developed a cough, cold 2-3 days after, and I am also quite tired, I also have one small ulcer in my mouth which developed today 5 days after the incident. These symptoms I must add are very mild and seem to grow the more I research this issue which is leading me to belive or maybe just wishful thinking that this is due to anxiety. I have also read that these symptoms do not generally occur 2-3 days after the infection but more likely to be 2-6 weeks after.

What I basically want to know is, with the facts about the encounter and also these symptoms what would you say are my chances, I assume this is a common and annoying question from foolish people like myself, but your advice is greatly appreciated. Of course I will be getting tested but some advice to ease my mnd slightly would be great. As well as this do I ahve to wait up t 3 months before I can be tested or are there other ways.

Your help and advice is greatly appreciated

Symptoms for HIV do not show up in 2 or three days or weeks even. It could be a number of things either related to the sex or not.Get tested for all STDs.

thanks your advice is much appreciated. I guess these symptoms could be from the generally wild weekend including lots of alcahol and some magic mushrooms and also this anxiety
