Are mouth ulcers an acute HIV symptom worried ?

About 3 weeks ago I gave unprotected oral(fellatio) to a boy (I'm gay).

2 weeks exactly after exposure I developed a very mild sore throat limited to right side of throat.

The next day I had a headache that last about 30 minutes then went away.

Then 5 days after that I got a tiny canker sore (mouth ulcer) and I heard that is a sign of HIV.

I'm terrified am I worrying for no reason I suffer from terrible health anxiety
Please help any replys are much appreciated thank you !

Re: Are mouth ulcers an acute HIV symptom worried ?

oral sex has been proved over 30 years that is not a valid route of hiv transmission and to back that up, their are no reliable confirmed cases of hiv transmission from oral sex. So its nit likley your going to be the first, so you have nothing to worry about.

Re: Are mouth ulcers an acute HIV symptom worried ?

Ok that has defiantly reassured me thank you so much.

But just out of interest are mouth ulcers a symptom of early Infection ?

Not at all, they are very common more many reasons like stress.

Re: Are mouth ulcers an acute HIV symptom worried ?

Look you never had a risk of HIv thats a fact. Even if you had a risk of HIV, no symptoms would ever happen at 5 days, its impossible. Say thats why i can say its not from HIV, 1 you never had a risk and 2, its way to soon anyway.

I hope that is more clear for you.

Re: Are mouth ulcers an acute HIV symptom worried ?

It wasn't five days I clearly said 2 weeks after exposure the symptoms began.

I said five days after headache I got a mouth ulcer not five days after oral sex.

You never had a risk of HIV, that's the point you seem to not understand.

Re: Are mouth ulcers an acute HIV symptom worried ?

There has been not one documented or proven case of HIV transmitting through oral. It is a theoretical risk, which is why they state it as a risk. It would require tremendous amounts of blood and open sores for this too happen.

You are doing exactly what a thousand before you have done, ignore what is said and keep on because you have symptoms. A half-a-sore throat?...sounds like somehting scratched your throat. A headache?....nah, thats not a common everyday thing. An tiny canker sore? They can come from stress, brushing too hard, hormonal changes, vitamin deficiencies, etc.

I'll repeat what has ben said a lot here already. You had no risk for HIV. You can do 2 things from here.....1) believe us, we would tell you if there was a chance you had HIV. 2) Ignore us and keep reading on symptoms on the intrenet and freak yourself out, and end up testing negative anyways.....

Yes I understand now.

Even if there is the most slightest chance it could they have to mention or they got get sued or something for misleading info.

Thank you so much everyone you have really gave me piece of mind.
