"Mi caso es el siguiente: Tuve 2 relaciones vaginales con una prostituta hace 2 semanas (04/10/2011). En todo momento use condones (no hubo ningun contacto genital sin condon) no hubo sexo anal, ni oral ni besos de ninguna indole. Mi preocupacion radica en el hecho que la prostituta sintio molestias en la penetración y se aplico crema de manos en la vagina con el fin de mejorar la lubricación. Hoy 15 dias despues tengo mucho dolor de garganta, dolor muscular, dolor articular, siento molestias en las axilas, cuello e ingles. Mi pregunta final es: ¿Esta crema pudo dañar el condon y por ende haber adquirido el virus?"
