HIV concern

On Nov 14 I had a sexual encounter with a gay male where I performed oral sex on him for about 2 minutes. He did not ejaculate in my mouth and I am unsure whether or not there was pre-***. No condom was worn by the way. He didn't appear to have any open cuts on his genitals and I am pretty sure I didn't have any in mouth.

I went on my merry way and the next day, not even 24 hours later, I began feeling very sick. That night on Nov 15, I became very ill with flu like symptoms. It is now more than 2 weeks later and my flu like symptoms are mostly gone except I am dealing with an irritable sore throat. I know it says not to talk about symptoms on here but I feel it is important to my story because the flu like illness I experienced was very intense even though it was then gone by the next evening on Nov 16.

The guy I performed oral on says that he is HIV negative and clean. He also says that he tested negative in July and hasn't had a single sexual encounter since then. I want to believe him but he just doesn't reassure me because he is a stranger to me.

I know the ultimate answer is testing but I am worrying myself constantly with this. Can anybody help me out? Maybe drop some knowledge on me about the situation. Please take it easy on me

Thank you.

Re: HIV concern

I would say, nothing to worry about regarding hiv. It is possible to get a std and you may want to test for those just rule them out but being ill was nothing more than a coincidence buds.

Re: HIV concern

I ended up getting an HIV test just because I was at the doctor anyway for my symptoms. It was 18 days after the event. I got the test back yesterday & it was negative. How effective can a test be after 18 days?

I have also developed what I believe could be a cold sore on my outer lip, should this be of concern to me?

Thank you

Re: HIV concern

hye. your test is pointless because oral sex is not valid pathway for hiv. hope that help.

In your case the test is fine as you didnt have a risk of HIV. Billions of people have cold sores, nothing to be concerned about.
