Same advice as before applies now as when you asked last time about oral and your self diagnosed "lymph issue", since the science can't change. You have 34 posts and likely know by now that there is zero risk from oral which many threads on this forum have explained to people inquiring.
It is doubtful that you know what your lymph does, so should stop poking and irritating it, then claiming in error that you have discovered hiv. And you can see a doc for a real diagnosis if the problem goes beyond your self irritating it.
Oral sex is not a risk for HIV transmission. There have been numerous studies done lately to back this up, presence of saliva inhibits the virus, also when infected fluid is ingested, the gastric acid in the stomach will inhibit the virus.
Swollen node could be due to numerous factors, also your own diagnosis of a swolen node is irrelevant, see a doctor for your concern, you never had a risk and HIV is not your problem.
I took a course of ciprofloxacin 500 for 5 days (twice a day) upon my doctor's advice. The swelling has not reduced and I have not gone back to the doctor. Another node below the ear started to swell today, and is warm and beginning to enlarge. No other symptoms other than two swollen lymph nodes.
1. How soon can I test before getting a confirmative result? If I do a combo ag/ab test, will that be definitive after 4 weeks? or 6?
2. I was wondering if rimming and watersports, including ingestion of urine can change your risk evaluation?
3. In ARS, do lymph nodes swell bilaterally or unilaterally? Mine is unilateral and both are swollen on the left side.
you had no risk to begin with, oral is not a risk, your swollen gland has nothing to do with hiv. I have swollen glands too but I'm hiv negative.
In an adult, only unprotected anal or vaginal sex and sharing IV drug needles is a risk for HIV infection.
