I had protected oral and vaginal sex with a commercial sex worker two nights back. The condom was intact throughout the intercourse. When I was about to ejaculate, I withdrew my penis, and the condom was intact even then. She got up and came with tissues, and I withdrew my condom with the help of tissues. I confirmed with her twice that she does not have HIV. I am worried if I was exposed to HIV, and that she was lying. What are my chances of getting infected? I know the chances are very low, but anxiety is killing me.

It is just a follow-up to my question. It has been 50 days since my exposure. On the 29th day, I got a high fever, cough, and muscle pain in my back. I went to a doctor he said it was a lower respiratory tract infection. He put me on antibiotics for five days. The fever and cough have subsided. The cough has resurfaced now, and it is dry but irritating. While taking antibiotics, I observed that I had a single mouth ulcer which took like 14 days to heal. I also got something similar to balanitis on the 28th day, which went away after taking vitamin tablets. I have now developed something like fungus or yeast in my groin area or inner thigh region, which seems to be Jocks Itch. I still have not taken the tests for HIV and STDs. Regarding fever, I noted that some of my family members developed a similar fever with dry cough once I got it.

My friend, opportunistic infections in HIV can come very late into the disease, usually after 4 or 5 years into the disease. Mouth ulcers may be an aphthous ulcer can be due to stress or medications. Joker's itch is pretty common. Again LRTI (Lower respiratory tract infection) can come at any time. So obviously, all these are not related. The point is that you can go for an HIV test, that is, an HIV RNA test, since it can give results early and reduce your anxiety.
