These are symptoms ofhiv?

I'm really scared
On Monday I had unprotected anal sex on top.
I know I was drunk, it was stupid
3 days later, I get stomach ache
Next day I have a strange feeling in my head
Then the next night, my head is burning up
But after 4-5 hours sleep, I wake up and its fine
I also still have stomach problems and little appetite.
I don't have swollen lymphs, fatigue(body feels perfect), sore throat, headaches, runny nose, cough.
Do u think this is ars?

Re: These are symptoms ofhiv?

Hi,

It is too early to be ARS. ARS symptoms, if they occur at all, occur 2 to 4 weeks after an HIV infection, not days.

Sorry, there is no way to sugar coat this but it does not alter the fact you have put yourself at a risk of an HIV infection and should test out to 3 months for a conclusive result. The earliest you can get an accurate result would be 4 to 6 weeks after this incident.

Kevin.

Re: These are symptoms ofhiv?

its certainly not ars as kevin has said, its to soon but you should test for std,s to rule them out at 2 weeks. Nothing you have said indicates any infection but you do need to test for hiv and 6 weeks will give you a good indication of your status but only a 12 weeks test will confirm that.

Best of luck.
