Hello! My name is***** to JustAnswer. I'm reviewing your question now, and will post back with your reply momentarily.

I have an ache in my chest
Customer: replied 4 days ago.
I'm scared that i have caught hiv

What make you think that you have contracted HIV?

Customer: replied 4 days ago.
I had sex unprotected with a guy who is highly sexually active and I got thrush straight away after we had sex. Then I started feeling un well. Got a sore throat a few weeks later and my period started which is unusual because I have an implant which usually stops them. I had a break out with my herpes and then a cold sore has appeared n now a rash all over my back and under my breast area

pins and needles in my hands and feet

When this happened?

Have you taken an STI test?

Customer: replied 4 days ago.
I had sex with him around a month ago now
Customer: replied 4 days ago.
He has and he is clear but he didn't take a hiv test

Thanks for the details

I think you must take an HIV test

Although your current symptoms are not suggestive of HIV but still with an unprotected sex you must have a test

You can go to the sexual health clinic to get it done

Please do let me know if you have any other question
