I got tested for HIV 2 years back and it was negative.
Exactly 5 and half weeks back I had sex with a a gay man who is Dutch..I am clueless about his HIV status..He went back to Netherlands now..The guy appeared to be very frail and and introvert..so I suspect that he knows he is HIV positive
It was unprotected oral sex (both did to each other) and as far as I know i did not take the ejaculation into my mouth.....and also protected anal sex (he penetrated me with condoms and water lube)
Now after 5.5 weeks I am getting all the scary symptoms..
1) High fever 102 to 103 degree
2) Chills when the temperature shoots up
3) Head ache
4) severe sore throat
5) No cough and no running nose
6) No red rashes yet...I pray that I do not get the rash
I just came back from hospital...I did not ask for the HIV test and I did not mention any of these things to the doctor...I am too scared at this moment to test...I will test for all STDs probably after 3 months of abstinence
The doctor should have assumed that it was a bacterial infection and so prescribed me antibiotics..I am yet to start the dosage..will start it shortly today
My questions are
1) Does acute HIV symptoms start 5.5 weeks after exposure? I find conflicting info from the internet...Some says from 2 to 4 weeks...Some says it can happen even after 8 to 10 weeks
2) I understand oral sex is of low risk and risk is almost zero if there was no ejaculation...But still considering the symptoms and that it was a gay man, I am scared..I also understand that anal sex with condoms is of low risk..and as far as i know the condom did not break...But I can not be 100% sure..He quickly disposed the condom after pulling out
I have played the Russian roulette and now breaking my head
3) If the fever comes down for ANTIBIOTICS (which doctor prescribed today and I am yet to start the dosage), does that mean that it was just some bacterial infection and can I rule out the possibility of HIV ?
Please help....I had to attend a wedding ceremony tomorrow..But I have cancelled it as the temperature is very high..and I am lonely here in my home..I dont know what to do
Its quite simple, symptoms are pointless as HIV has no specfic symptoms anyway and Kevin has a sticky thread in more detail about this.
In short, you had zero risk and it is zero. Their have been no reported case's of HIV transmission from oral sex and this includes couples where one partner is positive ( you just guessing about yours ). So you being the first, not going to happen mate.
1 Ars happens 2 -6 weeks, no more
2 Oral sex zero risk and so is PROTECTED, neither are low risk, its just termanology.
3 Yes. HIV would no go away with that medication.
Hope that helps
