help. does this sound like hiv

I had sex with this girl about 2 month ago.  I have 2 swollen lymph. the doc said they were swollen in my neck and I have been coughing really bad. At first nothing was coming up But I have been coughing up A LOT OF THICK WHITE PHLEGM for the past month.  I was wondering was this thick white phlegm a sign of hiv?

I am not sure if this matters but in the first month i was dizzy. but the room was spinning but then it went away on it own. that is when all the coughing started. Then started producing a lot of thick, white phlegm in the back of my throat.

The white white phlegm has not went away yet. It is very thick!

Hi randi30,

Was your sex protected or unprotected?

If it was protected, you need not worry about hiv. Condom protected sex is as good as no sex, and you have no chance of hiv from that.

If it was unprotected, you can get tested now, and if negative, test again at 3 months for a conclusive test.

Wish you all the best.

Take care.

May God bless

Symptoms or lack of symptoms will not give you your status. You can test 3 months post exposure to obtain a conclusive test result.
