Correction...I don't have my timing correct but this happened on the 25th and I started feeling a sore throat on like noon of the 27th. It's now February 1st and I have full blown tonsillitis. However I have been treating it and someof my ddiscomfort is going away.
Symptoms mean nothing when it comes to diagnosing HIV. Anyway, 3 days is way to soon for HIV symptoms.
You had a risk and need to get tested.
Take a DUO at 28 days ((no later)) post exposure as an indication. Follow up at 3 months post exposure for a conclusive result.
Hi there, firstly this isn't the doctor's forum its the community forum. Secondly your sore throat tonsillitis came on way to quickly to be considered as ARS symptoms. It takes a few weeks for symptoms to occur and your sore throat 4 days after the encounter strongly suggests it has nothing to do with HIV. The fact that your partner didn't cum inside you puts you at even lower risk. Thirdly most people wouldn't lie about their HIV status. It is most likely the guilt of what you did which is giving you the irrational thoughts that someone is lying.
Lastly believe it or not the risk is actually very quite low for a one time encounter. It's repeated high risk exposures that put people at real risk.
My advice would be to get an HIV duo test at 4 weeks. It will give you definitive results. (stated by HIV experts) Bet on a negative. You may also choose to test out at 12 weeks to be on the extremely safe side but most HIV experts say that is unnecessary. Bottom I would trust your 4 week duo result.
I Agree with sleeplessnights34
sometimes people mistake mono for hiv just saying that it would be much more likely or possibly even something bacterial so you may want to test for ebv ,or hhv6,or cmv.theses can all cause mono and are very common and uncomfortable for a short period and usually harmless.but dont obcess over hiv .
