    Possible HIV

    I was at a strip club and had unprotected sex with a stripper. About 18 days later i got a mild sour throat. Then, around day 20 I got a mild fever (100.5 highest). I got tested at the 3 week mark (4th Gen AB/AG) and the results came back negative. Can anyone help me determine if Im still likely to have HIV?

    Should I be worried?

    Recently, I’ve noticed some weird things going on with my health. I have what I think are canker sores on my gums, a fever that seems constant (but not too severe), nausea and dizziness on-and-off. I’m slightly concerned that it might be something bad like HIV (which would be bad because if I have it I’ve probably already spread it), or maybe something else. Any second opinions? Thanks

    HIV risk from blood in curtain

    So I went to a hospital to accompany a friend recently. We however need to go to the laboratory to get some results but along the way we have to pass a corridor with a door with a curtain.

I was not sure if my hands touched those blood spots but then after maybe an hour, I was very thirty and....
