I had protected sex with a *********e in dom republic greater than one year ago. There was vaginal intercourse. I was intoxicated at the time, however, after I ejaculated, when i was removing my penis, the condom slipped off. I checked the condom to ensure that I had ejaculated in it, and sure enough there was semen in the condom.

My question is this... Since that event, I was feeling fine, with no symptoms. I had posted on a forum and I was ensured that I was not at risk. The encounter occured in June, and the next time i got sick was in December, during flu season. I realize that ARS (acute retroviral syndrome) does present like the flu. Multiple people around me were also infected with the flu. Since then I have been fine. I have been gaining weight, and bodybuilding. However, in the last month I got sick twice. Both times I recovered in approx 3-4 days. Today I feel a bit fatigued and my body hurts (poss from the gym), and I feel a bit feverish.

Should I be concerned about a risk of HIV? Everytime I get sick, I think about it. I know I should be tested, but the thought of going to the testing center makes me so weak that I feel like i am going to collapse.
