I had unprotected oral sex with a prostitute...could I have gotten HIV or an STD?

I’m very scared because, in the last two or three months, I’ve had sex with different prostitutes. I used a condom, except when I had unprotected oral sex (mouth to vagina). Two days ago, I suddenly got a skin rash and fever. I thought it was just an allergy, but the anti-allergy pills haven’t made the fevers go away. Could I have gotten HIV or an STD? Please help!

I’m too scared to get tested for HIV...what should I do?

I am a 22-year-old college student and have been with 14 partners. Three of them did not wear condoms. I had an STD a while ago, but nothing since then. I also get yearly exams and haven’t had sex in over a year. But I’m worried that I might have AIDS. I feel almost crazy thinking about it…and I’m too scared to get tested. What should I do?

Can I get AIDS in a hot tub?

Last week, I had sex with my new girlfriend…she said she’s a virgin and hasn’t been tested. We were in the bathtub and used a condom. After we had sex, I took the condom off and fingered her in the water. My penis was also under the water. If my girlfriend is HIV-positive, could I get HIV from being in the tub with her? Can HIV survive underwater? Also, do condoms provide the same level of safety underwater?

I have symptoms similar to the flu...could I have HIV?

I had unprotected sex a few times and have these symptoms: itchy genitals, constant itching all over my body, uncontrollable shaking and twitching, trouble sleeping and lumpy, stringy sperm. I also wake up sweating, feel sick often and don’t get hungry. My body is extra-sensitive to touch. I have been tested for STDs, including HIV/AIDS, and the tests have come back negative. I’ve also been diagnosed with depression, but the medications they gave me aren’t making these symptoms go away. Could I have HIV/AIDS?

My partner has HIV...what’s my risk?

The woman I love has HIV, but I’m very confused. She says she doesn’t have AIDS, only HIV. What’s the difference? I had sex with her once and oral sex many times. I really love her, but I’m also afraid. Can I tell her that I want to stop having sex without hurting her? What are the chances I’ll get HIV from oral sex?
