To all the people who have hiv concerns after, well any incident actually. do you find that you find a symptom and immediately attribute it to hiv? the vast majority of them symptoms are also caused by a lot of other illnesses. swollen glands could be many other stds, much more easily transferred by oral sex. type swollen glands followed by any of gonnorhea (Gonorrhea),Herpes,Syppillis, even swine flu. likewise a rash could be caused by hundreds of different issues. what i found was that 4 Days after my oral exposure i started looking up symptoms,Low and behold i start having swollen glands after reading about them. remember in the northern hemisphere it is currently winter and most likely many winter viruses are going around. once you allow yourself to be free from only looking up hiv as a symptom you will realise there are dozens of much more likely causes for your symptoms. the fact you likely feel guilt is making you feel as though you are being punished by god for your exposure. the fact is this site is trustworthy, if doctors, nurses and hiv experts with first hand experience tell you it wasnt a risk you can take that to the bank. you can always find misinformation online and look on google enough and you will find something to confirm your fears, but it doesnt mean it is right. broaden your search terms if you are going to insist on self diagnosing, you would be surprised how many of your "Ars" symptoms apply to hundreds of other illnesses. peace be with you
I have read hundreds of posts with all sorts of different exposures. nobody here is pulling the wool over peoples eyes, when there is even a miniscule real risk people are told to test. people don'T believe that oral is no risk for hiv yet it quite clearly isn't. about 3 Posts a day are attributed to oral sex. nobody ever comes back and says actually you were wrong. the fact is people ignore much more prevalent stds because they are so scared of the big one. the problem is guilt and anxiety. symptoms for ars arew so common for literally everytjing else. if you have swollen glands in your groin you could have gonnorhea (Gonorrhea), but people are obsessed with hiv. it is hard to catch from known transmission methods, it is impossible from no riskl exposures.
