I'm a gay man who had a lower risk encounter (oral sex without ejaculation), and 36 hours later began to experience flu-like symptoms (sore throat, slight fever, aches) and a sort of burning sensation in my inner thighs. The flu-like symptoms are going away, after 3 days, though the burning in my groin/thighs is still present.
I went to my Dr., who said that HIV was unlikely, and said it was probably just a regular virus. She suggested getting a Gonorrhea and Chlamydia tests over an HIV test, which I did. I contacted the other guy, who told me that he was screened (with negative results) in June, and that he does not engage in higher risk behavior (anal sex, etc).
Is it correct to assume that HIV would not begin to show symptoms in such a short time? Everywhere I have looked, I've read that symptoms usually don't show for a few weeks, let alone a day and a half later. I think I might be getting myself worked up.
So basically, oral sex without ejaculation, with flu-like symptoms and inner thigh discomfort 36 hours later.
