Hey there, straight/bi male here
18 years old and worried again about hiv
4 weeks ago I performed and received unprotected oral sex with a guy. I ejaculated in his mouth, but he did not in mine- in fact, I only performed oral for a total of 30 seconds, maybe. Before this (several months before) I performed oral on another guy, but tested for HIV (neg) at the 10 week mark. (I've been meaning to follow up, as well) so, it's been 4 and 14 weeks since my last two sexual encounters (bigggg mistake to repeat unprotected, causing so much worry and anxiety- NOT worth it!) I know chances are slim for HIV to be caught this way, but what I'm truly looking for is some reassurance until I'm at a 12 week mark to be tested and moveon. It's consuming me and I think about it every day. I've had anxiety over other things in the past, and I don't think it helps in these sorts of situations. That said, symptoms have occurred, but I've never had a fever, mainly sore and itchy throat, muscle stiffness, stuffiness- all which can mimic allergies. The guy from the most recent encounter and I have been in contact and he SWEARS he is negative- but some part of me doesn't believe it. The guy before it was completely random. Advice/reassurance? Should I get tested beforehand as well?
