If you believe you have been exposed to HIV and want help to judge your risk, would like advice about HIV testing, or have questions about the effectiveness of condoms or risks associated with specific sexual practices, this is the site for you.
I have 2 questions if someone could answer please - they are not related:
1) Would it be at all possible for ARS symptoms to start at 10 weeks? Some sites say up to 13 weeks (inc. government website).
2) Would a man receiving unprotected oral have any risk of HIV?
I do understand that ARS symptoms are not specific and that testing at 3 months is the only way to be conclusive but would appreciate answers to the above please. Thank you in advance.
1.NO never,it,s not possible.ARS symptoms appear 2 to 4 weeks after infection.2.NO,not Hiv but possibily other more common STD,s.Yes 3 months is correct and if oral sex is all you had then you don,t require any Hiv testing at all.
