  • Very Worried - Condom split

    Hi, I am starting to really worry about the possibility I may have HIV and really need some advice on what I should do next, and also a professional opinion on the chances that I have contracted said STD. 7 days ago I was in Bangkok, a friend and I met two Thai locals, who we both took back to our hotel and had sex.

    HIV risk from elevator buttons to eyes?

    Help! I went into vacation to one of the countries in Asia and I was booked by my travel agency to a hotel where I thought located in the red district.

    Very brief unprotected anal sex

    I had encounter with CSW. For a very brief (less than 20 secs) time, I inserted my penis into her lubricated anus. After thruting two or three times I pulled out and continued the encounter with condoms. I have no cuts on my penis. I was drunk at the time and has been concerned after realizing what I did. I reached out to CSW and she said that she is HIV-. I understand unprotected anal sex carries relatively higher risk. Should I be concerned? Thanks

    Low WBC other symptoms

    Recently had a wbc test and came back low on Lymphocytes, Eosinophils, and Basophils. Should I be concerned? Recently having issues with not feeling hungry, unintended weight loss, cough and phlegm, top of throat irritated (not a sore throat), and Oral thrush. I did just come off of antibiotics and taking anti fungal and HIV test came back negative. Should I be worried or could this be something else (anxiety?)? Some of these symptoms seem like advanced HIV/AIDS.
