Possible HIV exposure.. cunnilingus/analingus

Out of my own stupidity and foolishness, a month ago I received a lap dance at a strip club. The stripper took it to the next level removing her bra and thong.. spur of the moment I performed very brief cunnilingus and analingus on her... over the past couple weeks I've noticed minor swelling in the back of my neck and have woke up multiple mornings with an upset stomach... I am very concerned, have I contracted HIV??

Don't panic man.As experts say hiv is can not infect you in this way.But I think that other std's can so I would also recomend you to talk to an std specialist and maby test for the std's that could transmit this way.Don't let your self get in to this much of anxiety it never helps.Never the less hiv is not something that you should worry about.Don't give this more scale that it really has.I made that mistake and I am still strugling to get over the fears and anxiety.

I would go to the doctor and get some blood tests. It could be an std or something totally different. Next time don't do that. It is hard to say without blood work being done.Please schedule an appointment or go to your neighborhood health clinic.

Thanks, it's much appreciated. It's just scary as hell when your symptoms seem to match what is considered online as HIV indicators. I plan on having a blood test done for HIV in November for peace of mind, since it will be 3 months past exposure then... as in other STD's what do you think I would be at risk for? Can Hepatitis be spread orally?

I am not a doctor you have to consult an std's specialist for the proper answer on what test you should do.Hepatitis b can spread orally I think but there is a vaccine,you should search your medical history and see if you were vaccined as a child.If you had you have nothing to worry about.Again you should see a specialist about those matters.
