Notsoimportant: It is, in fact, coincidence. We see hundreds of questions every week, and a vast majority of the questions are about no-risk activities such as yours. And, almost every person believes they are having "symptoms" of HIV. No one gets HIV from having sex with an intact condom. NO ONE.
Whatever you are experiencing - both of you - it is not HIV.
I have done HIV 1 & 2 rapid test with EZ-trust test kit. Test came Negative. I shall still recheck test with extra test-kit I have.
Well that is comforning. However, if I, as someone who never visited a doctor, experience: rash, white tongue, memory and hair loss, fever, night sweats, red spots on the chest, diarrhea and so on, cannot see what else it can be than HIV. And yes, I had UTI that started just after sex and last for few days. Oh and I have almost forgotten, I had open sore for two days (I suspect for LGV)
My symptoms occur in 2-3-4 days. It is not that they all shown in one day, but not week by week. I would say something between.
Chima7, I had protected sex too but how it can be a big cooncidence. Its not likely..
You had zero risk of HIV with protected sex. That's why it's called Protected Sex because you are protected by the condom. Your symptoms have nothing to do with HIV and are totally irrelevant. Because you had zero risk you do not require any HIV testing for this.
I have some brown spots and other symptoms too. I hope I got fungal infection only.
I will wait few weeks and take a test. When are you going to take it? Post your results please.
If you were protected during intercourse, as you say you always were, you never had a risk and your symptoms are not related to HIV.
You don't need to get tested.
Cold is not a symptom - flu is.
Did your doctor suggested you to take a test? Protected sex is protected, but testing is recommended because you had a sex with unknown person and you don't know her status.
How your dark spots look like?
Hi there, protected sex is as it is, you are protected as long as the condom was intact. I would advise you to still go for an HIV test. At this point, your test woul be conclusive.
