can i have hiv?

I had protected vaginal sex with sex worker who I believe was HIV+ because of needle marks on her wrist. This was 3 weeks ago and now i have a fever of 37,8C and sore throat. I also noticed a small white spot in my throat and I think it is tonsillolith (I have never had tonsillolith before). I'd like to know if tonsillolith can be a symptom of HIV, because it may be a result of dead white blood cells which HIV kills. And is it likely that i have HIV?

Apparently he did. He advised you that you didn't have a risk. You had protected sex.

What about the symptoms? See a doctor if you are concerned about your symptoms they have nothing to do with HIV.

No, that medication would not have given you a false negative result. You're conclusively negative.

Hi there, I've experienced this for 3 years now and they come and go many times through the year. I get them quite a lot, they are nicknamed tonsil stones and I find I get them more when Im stressed.
They are harmless but quite annoying and can leave a horrible taste in the back of your throat. They can be quite difficult to remove yourself if you have a sensitive gag reflex, but if youre like me then you'l have no trouble.
They are easy to remove with cotton wool buds, just shine a torch down your throat and apply pressure where you can see them and they just pop out. There are many holes in tonsils so can be tricky at times. Just make sure you brush your teeth really well and more importantly the back of your tongue. Because these "tonsil stones" are built up of bacteria. Hope I've helped.
