    HIV concern..

    I am a straight 21 year old male. I had unprotected sex for the first time on June 25 with a girl for a few minutes. I started with a condom but could not finish so I took it off for the end. A few days after, I developed a lot of pain in my groin area and legs. I went to my doctor and he said I have an infection and prescribed me penicillin. It turned out to be a muscle strain after an MRI and pain pills. However, I finished the medicine. About 7 days into the medicine treatment, I developed a rash on my chest, oral thrush and a rapid heart rate. My doctor said I was allergic to penicillin and gave a steroid which helped for a while. It then came back and I have had severe anxiety about it being HIV. I asked my partner to get tested about 7 weeks later and she did and was negative. She said I have nothing to worry about however my anxiety is killing me. I did an Oraquick test last week and was negative which was about 11 weeks later. I still cannot get it out of my head. Should I be worried? I have never felt so alone and scared in my life. Thank you.

    Hi buddy. I know the anxiety can be awful when you're worried about something like this but honestly, you're just going to need to wait for the three month window since the incident to have elapsed to be certain of the results BUT I wouldn't say that you're in a high risk category so I wouldn't worry too much.

    To be certain, make sure you go to get tested after the three months has passed. It's only then that you should start thinking about what's next, as until then there's really no point in worrying.

        Thanks for the reply. I tested with oraquick at home again at 89 days and was negative so it looks like I’m good. Is it necessary to retest again?

    You don't need to worry, try to ask your doctor for a pain killer however if it gets worst then go to a doctor

    You are HIV negative. Your testing has clearly shown this.

    Recently I found out that ongoing research continues to show great promise for the use of HGH for HIV patients.One of the most important benefits of HGH therapy is the impact it has on decreasing the viral load when used with anti-HIV medications. In previous studies, HGH was found to increase the size and function of the thymus gland. This organ located beneath the breastbone produces naïve T-cells that can then increase CD4 cell counts. HGH improves thymus gland size and functions through its role in stimulating cellular regeneration. By promoting the liver to secrete insulin growth factor 1, HGH brings about the production of its own mediating hormone IGF-1. https://hghtherapydoctor.us/hgh/benefits-of-hgh-for-aids-patients What do you think about this?
