What are my odds of getting HIV from unprotected anal male sex
I am a 38 year old gay male and over partied with friends last Thursday 12-3-2009 with had one too many martinis. Stone drunk, I ended up going home for a one night stand with a guy--to cut to the chase we kissed, I received an unprotected blow job from him and then I penetrated him without a condom (started off with a condom but for reasons beyond me we took it off)---I am old enough to know better and am horrified by my behavior. That said, I am trying to assess my risk of exposure to HIV. I went to a local clinic yesterday on Monday 12-7-2009 and they told me I last tested negative for HIV 10-8-2009. They took a swab of my urethra and everything looked okay under the microscope. I am going back Friday 12-18-2009 to rule out other STDs. I was told to test for HIV in three months 3-3-2010 unless I develop flu-like symptoms like headache, sore throat, swollen lymph nodes, night sweats, lethargy, etc. In that case I should be tested at that point. I called the guy and he said he is HIV- but I assume he may be lying. What are the odds of my contracting HIV? Does this prescribed protocol seem correct?
Thanks. I have a burning sore throat tonight, December 17th. No fever, no headache, not sure if my lymph nodes are swollen or not. Tomorrow I will get tested for other diseases--not showing signs as far as I can tell.
