I had sex with a female in a public bathroom on the floor around a week ago. I used a condom. I have been experiencing flu like symptoms since then and was wondering could it be HIV or is it more likely I'm getting sick because of the dirty floor.
The only sure way of you knowing is by having an hiv test. Otherwise you will be having sleepless nights for nothing. There so many other illnesses that share the same symptoms with hiv. Especially viral infections. Although it is common in hiv infection to have flu like symptoms. But since you had protected sex, then you need not worry much. Lastly, if you have had unprotected sex before in the past you still need to get yourself tested. Coz very often people get infected from unprotected sex they had in the even before they started having suspicions with their recent sexual activities.
OH for Pete's sake. It takes years for HIV to develop into a problem. You probably caught something from the bathroom floor. I question what both of you were thinking. I personally value myself higher then a quickie on the bathroom floor.
