Hi, i'm a 24 year old male. I had sex w/my ex-girlfriend unprotected. I was with her for a little over a year. She gave me genital herpes w/o telling me she had it. I'm not really worried about the herpes, because it's not bad living with it as people portray it in the media, but i'm scared she may have given me hiv/aids also.
A few weeks back I went to the doctor because I had white spots in the back of my throat w/swollen tonsils. The doctor gave me levaquin to cure the infection, which got rid of all the white spots & stopped the swelling tonsils. I read on the internet if you have white spots in your mouth & swollen tonsils you can have hiv/aids, but I want to know would levaquin cure hiv/aids white spots in your mouth or am I stressing over nothing?
A honest answer would be comforting, thank you.
:cry:

Do you know how sexually active your girlfriend is?
Active herpes also makes it easier to tranmit hiv.
Best bet is to get your girlfriend tested first.
If she is infected, it would be farther along and show up more
reliably on the tests.
If she does not have it, she can not give it you.

Good luck, paul v.

Hey, I dont really know too much about this stuff but I went to my college's healh center the other day and I had swollen tounsils and big white bumps in the back of my throat. Right before I went there I looked online to see what it could be and I saw that it is a symptom for hiv. I was really scared but when I got there the nurse said that they are the normal bumps that are always there but they were just enlarged because I was allergic to something I ate. She told me that if it was hiv then the bumps would be open wounds and that theyd be bleeding. Not sure if this will even help but just wanted to try. Hope you are ok.. Good luck

Oh, if your hiv the white bumps in back of your throat open up like ulcers & start to bleed? Whew.......That's relieving, because mine didn't do that. I just took levaquin & it went away. My doctor said it was a bacterial infection due to possibly smoking since I smoke. My doctor wanted me to take a physical/blood test, which I did, but I don't know if he is searching me for stds or not. Maybe he is but didn't tell me, because he didn't want to scare me. I hope he is though. I'm waiting for him to call me back with the results. It's already been a week since I took the blood test. I assume it must've came back normal since he didn't call me. I assume if they spotted hiv/aids he would've called asap. :d
i'll ask him when he calls if he checked me for any stds, if not, i'm going to get checked. I need peace of mind, stress does some crazy stuff to your body & mentally. I can't even get high peacefully anymore w/o thinking about it & freaking out. :cry:

Yea dont freak out. Everything is going to be ok no matter what. You just make it worse when you freak out. Dont think about it and just do things to make yourself forget about it and take your mind off of it. You are assuming the worst.. Never a good idea. Just wait for the results. Your doctor will call you soon and youll have everything all figured out

man, I cant tell you to not smoke pot, because I do myself. However, marijuana will make your mind worry much more than you should. I have been afraid of an hiv infection for a long time, even though I was tested and it came back negative. I usually feel alright, but when I smoke I start to panick and notice weird "back pains" and "stomach pains" that my mind can be placing on me. And it is very possible that you got that infection from smoking. I had to get my tonsils removed because of it.
