Ok, I lately went to Thailand for two weeks and had sex with a Thai stranger, the condom ce off but was replaced as soon as noticed.

Problem is with some info my doctors told me after I went for a blood test for STD's

they said I was positive for hepetitis a, showing a recent infection due to being positive for igm and igg.

I told him I had a vaccine two weeks before travel (a total of about a month before) so would be this, he told me I was wrong and just kept repeating what the report said. I don't believe him, this was three months ago. Over the last month I've been really itchy, loose stools and had one pale stool about a month ago.

I'm really worried I had either hep b and/or HIV as I also got pneumonia whilst there (11 days after sex).

Is he right? He seems to think that only the igg would of shown due to vaccine not the igm, and that I did have hep a.

If he's right i would be happy putting my symptoms of late down to a relapse. If he's wrong what else could it be but another hepatitis. I'm so scared I have HIV and his complete lack of care has meant it's been missed when it could of been looked for with other tests (p24?)

I get my 3 months test results in two days, I'm convinced he's wrong but can't find any realiable info.

  • I'd be more worried about hep C; could have been shots...make sure you get tested in a few more months, too. You should know soon..

  • What do u mean it could of been shots? Do u mean someone could of injected me? I've been worried about that as well as I noticed a pinprick like mark on my toe whilst on holiday (small red round mark)I'll know tomorrow for sure, but I'm convinced I have HIV at the least.Can anyone shed light on my igm results?
