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 had unprotected sex five months ago. I was tested for HIV and all other STDs at the 4 week mark. All were negative.
Five weeks ago I started having protected sex with my current partner (protected every time from start to finish vaginally). Protected vaginal intercourse, however, unprotected oral. I was retested 3 weeks after our first encounter for HIV.
She was tested for all STD's at the 11 week mark of her last encounter. She was negative for HSV, syphilis, HIV 1/2, heptitis etc.
About a week after sex I got a canker sore, it lasted about ten days, and I have basically consistantly had a single small canker sore. My head feels warm, but if I have a fever it's only ever a few points, like maybe 99 or 99.2. I have had a slight cold (stuffy nose) and a cough.
My real concern was the recurring canker sores. They have been one at a time, I don't know if that matters. I have gotten them my whole life, but never three in five weeks. Usually just two or three a year.
Does this sound like a real concern to have. Please give me your thoughts on if I should be concerned.
