I am 17 years old and i am very worried about HIV and other diseases that its causing anxiety .Ive had a swollen meatus for quite some time, in fact even before this situation i did so im not sure because it was swollen was it susceptible to getting hiv . I would like to explain my story as detailed as possible . Ok last year around spring break which is april i fingered this girl . Not sure for how long . Not sure if i had any cuts on my finger although im pretty sure i didnt . But i do have very short nails from constant biting . I am not sure if i touched my penis after . I do not believe i entered her at all . but she touched my penis breifly for like 30 seconds . We kissed . And that was about it . Ok so im not sure but some time after i had some chills and felt sick . Its very vague in my memory but im pretty sure it went away after a few days . So in august of that same year i kissed another girl very passionately .And she gave me a handjob with lots of spit but it was dark and i could not see . I ejaculated . Recently ive been messing with this other girl . Just mutual masturbation and rubbing our sex organs together . I put my tip inside of her but not for very long at all . In about march i started experiencing Joint pain and it progressed from joint to joint . First it was my knees that started cracking and popping and shooting pain . Then it was my shoulders . Ive had some fatigue but i would not describe it as debilitating at all .Just feel tired from occasion to occasion . I stay up really late , i usually got to slep around 6 in the morning . I havent had lymph nodes or night sweats . But about a week ago i had an extremely stressful situation . My stomach started having this empty feeling and i kind of loss my appetite . Since then ive had diarhea two times and im EXTREMELY scared . I keep looking up different things . And yesterday i kept checking for my lymph node in my neck and thing i made it sore . I have learned from this situation and believe that i will be waiting for marriage to participating in any frottage or different sexual activities just to make sure i am fully safe . Better to be safe than sorry . But i would like to know if you believe ive been exposed to any risk.
I also have some follow up questions for my own knowledge so that i may share it with others .
Does HIV only spread when inside of someone ? Like do i have to fully insert my penis into a vagina to contract hiv ?
Would anxiety and paranoia cause some of the symptoms im feeling ?
Would a swollen meatus make you more susceptible to hiv ?
A cure is on the horizon hopefully by Gods grace , So all of those suffering from this disease i feel for you and pray you all live very full long lives .View Thread
