Hello, 20 yr old male from Canada.
I met another man and had a sexual experience with and although we never had anal sex he did rub his penis up against my anus for awhile. My rational mind wants to tell me that there should be no reason why I should be concerned about HIV but my degrading health tells me otherwise.
What has happened since then and just before was I was already experiencing a bit of a sore throat so I could have been infected before this but it was very light and at the time I blamed the issue on to much soft drinks. A few days afterward I became rather sick with what seemed like a mild cold (coughing, sneezing, fatigue etc), I felt it was no issue and didn’t go to the clinic about it then after the sickness started to go away I started to cough up blood so I went into my doctor and he prescribed me Amoxicillin for a bacterial infection. I figured the Amoxicillin was working as over a few days the bleeding and amount of general sickness started to wean significantly, then on my last day of treatment I started to get a very violent fever and constant vomiting and I brought myself into emergency. The medical staff at the Hospital did a CT scan and blood test and said my lungs look normal from the CT but that my white blood cell count is high so they decided there was still an infection present in my lungs and that it wasn’t being killed off by the Amoxicillin and put me on Levofloxacin for 10 days, 3 days later I’m feeling better.
first question, what are the realistic chances something like this could really result in an HIV infection?
Second question, does my sickness sound like Acute HIV infection? I should have asked the doctor when I was there in the first place but I’ve doubted myself as paranoid.
3rd and major one is, When is the soonest I can get tested? I’m not sure if the anti-biotic drugs/infection will interfere with the ability to take the test.
Thank you for your time!
