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 recently had an unprotected oral and protected vaginal sex with a sexworker. Both the sexual activities were insertive. After that, I had followed some symptoms within 1-5 weeks. these include:- fever, 6-7 swollen lymph nodes in neck and right armpit,night sweats , 2 painless oral ulcers inside the left and right cheek(still present for a month) and a rash in neck (still present).
I got the rapid finger prick antibody test done at 42nd day after exposure and it came back negative. Need to get the same done at 90 days as well but I am afraid of the symptoms.. Not sure if the girl was in her acute period and the viral load might be very high or she had any open sore/bleeding inside her mouth...
Dr. Jose as you say, the Oral sex risk is minimal - Do you think this could be a different STD..Please give some advice as I deeply need that following the symptoms.
