I had sex with a prostitute when very drunk and unfortunately the condom split, the next day I vomited (this may be due to the alcohol the night before.) Four days later my throat glands were swollen and it was uncomfortable to swallow. I also had a headache and felt tired. The symptoms only lasted for three days, is it possible I have HIV?? I have read in some places symptoms generally occur weeks after exposure and last at least a week is this true or can symtoms occur this early and last such a short period of time?? P.S. I fully intend on going to the doctors for a HIV test!!
