    Anxiety or something more?

    I had protected insertive sex with another male about 9 weeks ago. It was protected with lube that I believe was the appropriate kind (I did not see the bottle) and, to my knowledge, the condom did not break. A couple of days later, I had pain in my testicles and penis shaft. This got better but was followed by a brief sore throat. That got better but then I had a minor rash under my arms. It cleared on its own but was followed with some pain in my underarm and neck lymph node and I have one enlarged....

    HIV Risk from bottoming with partner of unknown status?

    I recently had anal intercourse with a man of unknown status. I was the bottom.

Therefore, bodily fluids and/or pre-cum were on the outside of the condom – at which point we engaged in anal intercourse. Could those fluids that were on the outside of the condom be a risk to me? I don’t know my partner’s STD status, so I’m concerned mostly about HIV....

We had unprotected oral and protected vaginal sex twice (once eleven weeks ago and once seven weeks ago), after the second time a couple days later I noticed sores on my vagina that I assumed were herpes which made sense to me since he had performed unprotected oral sex on me. A couple days later I got it tested and came back positive for HSV 1, typically oral herpes. I started to get anxious about my HIV status, I....
