I wrote in a few weeks ago - I am in good shape and healthy. I had unprotected sex with stripper in Toronto. One and only time ever. Had negative HIV test @ 13 days, 21 days and now @ 69 days. My doctor tells me not to worry.
I have a sore throat and tongue, sore neck but think I am being paranoid - thoughts?
Am I at risk of contracting HIV.
Welcome back. But you were reassured in very strong terms by Dr. Hook and there isn't much to add. As discussed then, you had a low risk exposure. And a negatives antibody test more than 8 weeks after exposure proves you weren't infected. Symptoms are meaningless in the face of negative testing; the test results always rule. There is no chance you have HIV.

Really, mellow out. You should not be at all worried about these events. All is well.
