Symptoms of HIV

I had an encounter about a week ago now.We used a condom but it broke,unprotected anal.Receptive.Id like to know the odds that i contracted HIV and the initial symptoms.My stomach has been off literally since the day AFTER the encounter and still hasent subsided.Is that a sign of HIV?And can i be getting symptoms literally less than 2 days after the encounter?Im thinking it might be stress because i was aware the day after that he might be Positive.But im still worried and would like other opinions.Help?

tyical acute HIV symptoms are not so rapid like two days. Virus need time to replicate and body need time to response. Usually it needs 2-4 weeks. Your symptoms are not in the typical list.
Your behavior is in high risk(2%-5% if partner is confirmed to be positive), get test at 4 weeks, then 3 months, ask your partner's status, hopeful not lie to you.

He is a liar.Which upsets me,also the fact im 17 years of age,too young for this bull.But 2 to 5 out of what percent?

2%-5% means that 100 times encounter may have 2-5 catches. Do not  stress yourself now, he might be negative. Try to find a specialist and get a consult, you are very young. You should learn from this time, have a positive sex behavior in your future, otherwise it would be dangerous to you.

in the future...use PLENTY of water based lube to lessen the chance of condom failure.

a risk is a risk...so you need to test.  in the grand scheme of things...a very tiny percentage of ppl are hiv +...so odds are, the guy you were with was not.

symptoms are never a good indicator of early infection, as the same symptoms associated with ars, are also symptoms of common, everyday illnesses.
