About 3 months ago, I performed oral sex on a woman briefly. About 2 weeks afterward, I began experiencing some nausea and diarrhea. Soon after that, I began experiencing mild random leg pains and a sore throat. It went on like for a week or so, then I felt ok. Then I had sneezing, runny nose a month later and now (3 months later) I am having nausea, leg pains, sore throat again, as well as some tiredness or fatigue. I had a blood test for hepatitis 4 weeks after exposure which was negative. How accurate is a test at 4 weeks? How risky was this behavior? Does this sound like hepatitis? What should I do going forward?
Welcome to the forum. But I am concerned you keep asking about the same exposure, always with the same response (HIV professional forum, HIV community forum, herpes forum, STD community forum, hepatitis C forum): oral sex on women carries little or no risk for any STD.
No STD causes the sort of symptoms you describe. The risk for hepatitis is zero or close to it, and your symptoms don't even hint at hepatitis; if your test had been positive it would have been necessary to look for other sources of infection. Judging by your symptoms, you caught a cold, nothing more. You should stop testing for hepatitis, HIV, or any other STD. Just go on with your life. And I also suggest you stop looking for other MedHelp forums to ask the same questions. Better to save your money, time and energy.
