Oral HIV Risk Clarity
« on: December 30, 2013, 11:31:46 PM »
Hi, I just found out that my sex partner was HIV positive on December 28, 2013. I was tested earlier this month on December 11 for HIV and STDS, everything was negative. Once I found out his status, I got tested again on December 29, 2013 at the ER and it was negative. My last and only risky sexual behavior was oral sex with him on December 23. Upon finding out this news, I am emotionally, physically, and mentally debilitated. I never cried so hard in my life. After I left the ER, I noticed that my nose was really irritated; I asked the nurse to check it out. She looked at my nose, ears, and throat and stated that there were no signs of any infection that required antibiotics. She stated that sometimes when you cry, you can get nasal pressure and blockage. I am still experiencing this symptoms at the moment (they are slowly subsiding). I know that oral sex is a low risk activity but I need some clarity on a few things.

1. Is it too early for me to be experiencing symptoms (sore throat and lower back pain) of HIV?
2. Could the symptoms I am experiencing be noscomial (meaning from being in a hospital setting)? There was this lady across from me coughing up a storm.
2. If he ejaculated in my mouth (with or without) my knowledge, what is the likelihood that I can be infected?
3. Is it true, that at 4 weeks, HIV results are considered accurate or should I wait 3 months (which I plan on doing)?
4. What can I do to ease my anxiety about this situation?

Thanks in advance for reading my post!

3 months post your last unprotected penetrative sex is when you can obtain your conclusive negative test result. Oral sex is not a risk of contracting HIV.

I have not had unprotected anal sex (insertive or receptive sex) in the past 3 months.

Then you can test now and it will be conclusive.
