I had protected sex with a female of unknown hiv status. However, I was recovering from a cold sore, and wasnt completely healed. The cold sore was not bleeding, but Im unceratin about the level to which it was healed to avoid any tranmission of hiv. I did kiss her during the process, and Im concerned that I might have contracted hiv through kissing her and my unhealed lip being exposed. I tried to check if she cracks on her lips and did not notice anything...but might have been having small cuts...also possility of other cuts inside the mounth that I couldnt see.

2 days later, I had flu-like symptoms and a slight sore throat. Today, it's about 8 days since the exposure and the flu-like symptoms are still there. She had said that she was recoving from flu when we had sex.

Should I be concerned?

Any possibility of
