I'm no doctor but this unlikely to be STD related so soon after exposure and without any other symptoms. Don't worry about this being anything to do with HIV as I'm sure this isn't a symptom. I'm sure of one thing though, you need to see your doctor regarding your swollen gland.
Thanks Tony. Very kind of you to reply. Im pretty sure swollen lymph is a symptom having checked online. Its badly swollen, my face looks massive :( I have made appointment with doctor so hopefully it isnt anything bad. Im guessing I should get an std check too! man :(
Yes you should and start using condoms all the time.
Don't get me wrong swollen glands is a sign that the body is fighting an infection but in relation to an STD more than likely you'd notice symptoms in the genital region first before the glands in the neck would swell. Have you got any discharge from the penis? (more noticeable first thing in the morning) or pain upon urination?
No other symptoms at all. Tired, neck abnormally swollen! I just worry i could have caught something from CSW. Even though it was protected she was very very rough, biting the condom etc I need to not do this ever again
Very much doubt this is STD related but it's best to see what the doc thinks. If it was STD related it wouldnt be from the CSW it would be from the unprotected sex. Try not to worry too much easier said than done I know.
Thanks Tony. Yeah im guessing if anything it would be from unprotected sex as oral sex from anyone including CSW is considered very low risk and in some cases not worth testing (so these forums say).
I will talk to this girl to make sure all if ok and get tested. Thanks again,appreciate it
Let me know how you get on. Good luck
got tested today. I know 6 days is not enough but will go back again in a couple weeks.Is there any std's that will show up in 6 days potentially?
as was said, neck glands being swollen isn't typically std related. many infections do cause this, most of the common ones are transmitted through kissing as well as just being within 3 feet of someone and they aren't std related at all. following up on this properly since it's been a few days is the best course of action.
the only std testing that was accurate 6 days post encounter was gonorrhea, chlamydia, trich and ngu. you need to wait 6 weeks for syphilis testing and 3 months for herpes, hiv and hepatitis testing.
also as was already said, start protecting yourself better and only have protected sexual contact. this includes oral sex too. it's not worth the risk of having unprotected sexual contact at all!!!
Yes six days is enough for accurate gonorrhea and chlamydia testing. What did the doc think?
Thank you for your advice. Have spoken to this girl and she says she is clean having been checked. I do know who she is so hopefully telling the truth. My concerns are the swollen parotid gland. I gave been researching and turns out thus us a common gland that can swell in hiv infection! It's been ages now and the gland won't go down. People keep asking if I'm ok :-(.What are the chances of thus being hiv or syphilis based on exposure? Unprotected oral from csw. I have tried getting in touch but she won't reply. I'm worried now. Please respond with best thing to do
Must be cause of infection std etc cos thus isn't normal to be swollen this lo
no reason to think this is std related.
see your provider monday for a proper exam.
Unprotected oral sex with sec
worker. What's the risks
The clinic had said no need to test for any blood related diseases if last girl I know had been checked as no risk of hiv or syphilis from unprotected oral from csw. Is this correct? I've spoken to this girl again and she is totally fine having only slept with me in 8 months and been checked months ago. She us z friend do I trust her
