Hi doctor,

I had a protected sex with a sex worker five weeks before. She gave me oral sex after wearing a condom, then we had vaginal sex with the same condom for about 10 minutes. Muscle and joint pain on legs started after one month of act. I also got cold with this. I had flown after which I got this cold. I am very much worried after going through symptoms of HIV on the internet. Also, I do not know the quality of condom used. Do these symptoms relate to HIV? What is the chance of me contracting HIV? Should I get tested?

Thank you doctor,

I am seriously worried about my condition. I am under great stress due to this thigh muscle, leg muscle, joint pain. It has been for three weeks since it started. Is this pain due to the presence of virus in the body? If not what could be the reason for this pain? Should I get tested and what is the chance of me contracting HIV? Please reply at the earliest.

Hi,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

Nothing to worry, you are not at risk if the exposure was protected. There is no need for testing too. HIV virus initial presentations are not like what you have mentioned. So relax. For other symptoms, you can take tablet Azithral 500 mg once daily for five days and tablet Dynapar 500 mg twice daily for five days. Review in five days.
