Risk of HIV from safe intercourse

Resolved Question:

I am wondering if I could be infected with hiv or an std. I recently had safe intercourse with an escort. And during the weekend I had done a good amount of cocaine and now am feeling sick almost feverish. I am scared as I have a old lady back home. I will be going for tests today I will try the rapid test as I go back home in a week. I am hoping that I'm just not feeling good from the drugs but I am really worried.

Thank you for asking your query at DoctorSpring.

Since you had a 'safe' encounter ( I presume condoms ) the symptoms is not suggestive of any STD. In fact a STD is more likely to present as a discharge or genital lesions than a 'fever and sickness'. This is more suggestive of a viral infection. (non STD related viral infection - just like Flu). Anyway its good that you have gone for STD tests. If they are negative you can be sure that you are safe.

Hope this helps
