HIV/Other STDs

3 nights ago, I went on a bender with someone who used IV drugs in the past.  We used methamphetamine together.  I had just shaved my genital area earlier that evening, and while we were having unprotected sex, she got torn in the vaginal area and may have bled where I shaved.

Yesterday and today I've been feeling run down and have had a sore throat and loose stools.  My glands in my neck are swollen as well.  

Is there any chance that I've contracted HIV and am showing signs of ARS this early?  Could there be anything else I might have contracted from her that would be presenting this soon after a sexual encounter?

since you had unprotected sex, you should cover your bases with proper std testing. you can get tested for chlamydia and gonorrhea anytime after 1 week post encounter. syphilis after 6 weeks. herpes, hiv and hepatitis after 3 months.

should you develop any genital symptoms before then, be seen for a proper work up.

no reason to think your current symptoms are std related at all.
