Oral

A week ago I had oral sex w another man . I recd to completion and performed for less than a minute wo any known ejaculation.While I have been reassured that this is not a risk as expected I have a hard time being convinced of it . I have experienced nausea , chills , weakness . A couple of knew red spots on my abdomen  and a dull headache. It is comforting to read that others have  experienced symptoms whille being negative. I know much of this may be psychosomatic  but I find myself thinking of the most dire  conclusions to this .i tested myself w an oratest  just to get a baseline and of course it is negative
... I don't know if I can wait out  the time . I will test again at 22 days

No sorry not familiar with that test.
But no test at 2 weeks is 100℅ accurate.

Again: oral sex is no risk.

All the best.

To be candid just hearing people say oral sex is zero or near zero risk is the most comforting. I read those comments over and over again

By the way, you had oral only; so no risk.

No.

After an exposure, it can take between 3 to 12 weeks for antibodies to develop (with the vast majority testing positive by 6 weeks).
You can take a 4 the GEN test at 4 weeks +, as this looks for the antigen as well.
For a 3rd GEN test, you have to wait 12 week's for conclusive result ( though many experts believe; they will pick up everyone by 8).
Hope this help's.
