I have recently returned from Thailand where one evening I went with a female sex worker 2 occasions of incertive unprotected oral sex happened one where I never ejeculated in the mouth and the second where I did. Also 2 occasions of penetrative vaginal sex occured (both were protected by a condom)
My questions are what is the possibility of HIV/STD infection? I am now on the 12 day since and have not shown any STD symptoms, I have however fallen ill exactly 5 days after this occurance on returning home, coming down with Flu symptoms these being, hot cold sweats, headaches and a dry constant cough, this seems to be getting better slowly but has taken over a week.
Please if you can give me any of your expertise on my situation and whether I need testing or not
Receiving fellatio (oral sex) does not involve any risk of HIV infection. Therefore there is no need for you to get tested. However there a re other risks, including Chlamydia, Gonorrhoea, Non-specific urethritis, and Syphilis. I would recommend that you get tested for these.
