Hello and thanks for taking time to read.
 I was tested back in March , negative on all STDs.   I got to know this guy and our last encounter was the 5 of April. Just oral and he did have bent over and rubbed and pushed his penis at my rear really good but never entered.  He was rather thick and I would have known for sure if he did.
Fast forward to the 26th of may.  I have been talking to another guy for about a month and we got together at his place.  Oral both ways and we had anal.  I was the bottom.  He used a condom.  No problems with it as far as I know.  This was the last time I have had sex. 
About 4 weeks ago I have had nausea about evey day till this last week and it has been off and on.  Also not really a sore throat but swollen with drainage from my nose down my throat.  This happen about two ago and still hanging around.
  I know I read on here that I should be fine.  But I am wandering with what's happening with my body. It is perfect timing with the symptoms.  I know you say you can not tell nothing from them . 
My question is do they come all together and leave the same way?  Or can they come and go on there on?

Hi
Studies have shown HIV is sexually transmitted through unprotected anal and vaginal intercourse.  You were protected with a condom and have not put yourself at risk.  Your symptoms have nothing to do with HIV and it is safe to move on.

Best, Wade

To avoid infection,
You need to be using condoms for all anal and vaginal intercourse until you are in a trusting monogamous relationship and both have been tested for all STIs and HIV.
Everyone who is sexually active should have an annual exam and test for all STIs and HIV ,and always after unprotected intercourse. Always using condoms will give you peace of mind your tests will return with a negative result.

Thanks for your response.  Would the oraquick test be safe to assume the results at 6.5 weeks? I know 13 weeks is the time. Not just this case but other times as well.  I understand it's not the latest or the greatest test.

Oraguick tests are reliable, that said a negative result will rarely change after 6 weeks. From what you have posted you can expect a negative result.

Thanks once more for the things everybody on here does go people who made some not so smart choices.
 On July 2 I played with a guy and he fingered by butt and rubbed his penis against it.  He did not enter me at all but pushed up to it. He did cum on my hole then he fingered me more.

My question, do I have anything to worry about?  I do have strange things happening like sore back in places and having a sore pain under my right rib cage that started about 5 days ago.  My lower back has been going on about 2 weeks on and off.  Few headaches too.  I know the answer to this symptoms but I thought I would mention them.

Thanks for your response?

No, you did not have a risk of contracting the HIV from the activities you have described since you did not engage in an unprotected, risky activity.  No, you do not have anything to worry.

If you have pain about which you are concerned, see a healthcare provider for appropriate evaluation.

Please access this link to read, learn, and, most importantly, begin to understand how the virus is transmitted:
