    I heard that from one of my friends in the city. I was shocked to be honest. I slept with 5 guys in the city within two days around two months ago...

    If my friend is right, then how lucky I am if I'm still clean after those random sexes in the cityicon_cry.gificon_cry.gificon_cry.gif

    Feeling so bad even though I'm not showing any symptoms...at least so far....

    so are you saying you were BBing? If you play safe, not much to worry about! I dont believe it is that high though. I would believe 10%

    Practice safer sex if you can. Use a condom. It is the best protection against HIV.

    I only play safe.

    But I don't think condom can really prevent the virus... I read somewhere that the virus particle is smaller than the spacing of two polymers in condoms, so the virus can get through condoms...

    I always regret to have so many causal sexes. but I just cannot resist my desire to meet and mess around with new guys... icon_eek.gificon_eek.gif

    If you had safe sex (using condoms) you shouldn't be worried. Still I advise you to get tested ASAP (its always good to know your status).

    To be honest having read all the ignorance around HIV in this forum and how careless many posters are, I am not surprised in the least if these NYC stats were true.

    I agree. Get tested. Hopefully you will be fine if you used a condom

    Yeah it's true, condoms are never 100% safe, but condoms are the best thing out there to prevent HIV so its either that or no sex at all. it depends on the brand and how you use it, but efficacy is around 95%. Plus HIV is not an automatic catch, even if condom breaks you have a chance of not getting the virus. All in all condoms are the only way to go.

    Do I really need a test?

    It has been two months... And nothing went wrong with my body. I even gained some weight after the trip to NYC... Maybe I'm really that lucky?

    Whenever it comes to HIV, I got paranoid...icon_eek.gificon_eek.gificon_eek.gif

    Dude HIV doesnt have visible symptoms just get tested to be sure you're clean. Its the best thing you can do, specially if you've been sleeping around. After you get tested you wont be paranoid anymore, but ignoring the issue wont make it disappear.

    I even don't know where to take the test in US. Do I have to go to hospital to get the test?...

    I have been thinking about what if I did get HIV during the trip. It's just horrible, completely horrible.
