User :   Hi
I had sex with a prostertute some time ago and the condom broke. A week later I met a girl whom Im in a relationship with now. I had a blood test as soon as I met her to chec for any STDs. It came back ok. She also had a test 3 months later and it also came back ok. But I cant help to think I may have caught something. 2 years on I dont really have many symptoms. I only get the flu/cold once a year same for my partner. I do have a stye on my eye that has hung aroung for the last 6 months on and off. The only other thing is I have a red dot on my skin in about 4 or 5 different places, but I think I have always had them. Is it possible I have HIV or any other stds.
