JG, there is nothing HIV specific about any ofyour symptoms. And you need to know for this time and the future that neither the presence nor the absence of symptoms will ever tell you anything accurately about your HIV status. Only an HIV specific test taken at 3 months can give you that answer conclusively.

You're very close to 3 months now so I advise you get tested at that point. It is significantly harder to transmit HIV to the insertive partner (you) than it is to transmit it from the insertive to the receptive partner. The odds are significantly in your favor that you will test negative.

In the meantime discuss your symptoms with your doctor. They sound more like flu than anything else, but check with your doc.

And learn from this experience. Hopefully you're going to come out of this ok. But stop putting your life at risk. That means you need to use a condom everytime without exception when you have vaginal or anal intercourse.

Good luck on your test.
