HIV Prevention and Testing > Am I Infected?

2 risky encounters?


Thank you so much for the help. I am worried sick.

I was with 2 people of unknown status i am having many symptoms and scared to have the HIV virus.

1) There was deep kissing, oral with condom both ways. And kissing basically all over. His condom had guwe substance on the tip when i perfermed oral.

2) Deep Kissing im mouth and on breast and mutual masterbation.

Symptoms: 5 weeks later: Week, flu like symptoms 2 days of fever. I have white substance on my tongue. Swollen Throat for three days. I have a burning sensation in my stomach and a knot in my throat with nausia and diharia.

Please help are these symptoms of HIV? Was i at risk?

In advance i sincerely thank you for your advice.


You did not have any risk for infection.  Kissing is not a risk for infection.  Giving oral carries an extremely small risk that was made no risk because you used a condom.  The only way this encounter could have gotten any safer is if you stood on opposite sides of the room and didn't look at each other.  You did everything right and prevented yourself from infection.

 The symptoms you describe could be from hundreds of different conditions but if i had to make an educated guess I would say they're classic symptoms of anxiety. 

 Ann already gave you this information (hope she doesn't mind that i paste it here.  Follow her advice to continue to stay healthy and get on with your life.


It is not stupid to ask questions. That's how we learn.

The gel on flavoured condoms is where the flavour comes from. Maybe the one you used had a little more gel on it than usual, but it is nothing to worry about.

You did NOT have a risk of hiv infection in any of the activities you describe. Whatever is going on with your throat has nothing to do with hiv.

Since you're new here, I'm going to give you some general information. Please also read through the Welcome Thread and follow the links found there.

You need to be using condoms for anal or vaginal intercourse, every time, no exceptions until such time as you are in a securely monogamous relationship where you have both tested for ALL STIs together. To agree to have unprotected intercourse is to consent to the possibility of being infected with a sexually transmitted infection.

Have a look through the condom and lube links in my signature line so you can use condoms with confidence.

While you did NOT have a risk of hiv infection with your incident, anyone who is sexually active should be having a full sexual health care check-up, including but not limited to hiv testing, at least once a year and more often if unprotected intercourse occurs.

If you aren't already having regular, routine check-ups, now is the time to start. As long as you make sure condoms are being used for intercourse, you can fully expect your routine hiv tests to return with negative results. Don't forget to always get checked for all the other sexually transmitted infections as well, because they are MUCH easier to transmit than hiv.

You didn't have a risk of hiv infection. Use condoms for anal or vaginal intercourse and you will avoid hiv infection. It really is that simple.

Johnny, you need to keep your entries in the same thread. Don't start a new thread everytime you have a question or get a fresh burst of anxiety.That way readers can follow the exchanges and you will also get more informed responses.

You've already been told you weren't at risk for HIV. You need to become better informed about HIV transmission and you can begin to do that by reading the lesson on this site about it.

I'm locking this thread now. Please keep your entries in your previous thread.

You do not have an HIV problem. If you have troubling symptoms you should discuss them with your doctor.
