Gail- this is a good article but in some ways it seems to contradict a lot of what I have read here and elsewhere. First is where it talks about how long sysmtoms last and says "Usually a few days, up to 1, maybe 2 weeks. It has been emphasized that ARS is NOT a chronic condition," Is that still accurate?
Also when it talks about the percentages of catching HIV depending on the what you do- it says the percentage forunprotected annal sex with a partner you know is positive is 20 to 30%. That seems very high in relation to other articles I have read. I know the article is 10 years is it possible the findings have changed over that time? View Thread
I read my earlier post and realized I left some stuff out. First, I do not even know if he ejaculated - I did not feel him do that (but I am knew at this and do not know if you actually do) nor did I see him do so afterwards. Also, My allergies do not give me a sore throat but the roof of my mouth is sore and my eyes water at times. I do not have a rash of any type except my normal dry skin itches but I read where hiv rashes do not itch anyway. It is all so confusing. Please give me your best thoughts. The back of my left knee aches a little and I have a slight pain in the muscle in my left arm but no where else except my left ankle which is often times stff from an old accident. Sorry if I am rambeling but I am scared.View Thread
