I am a 31-year-old male. I wish to know what are the practical chances of me being infected with HIV from only receiving unprotected oral sex. It happened multiple times in the course of a one-hour encounter with a CSW. There was absolutely no vaginal or anal intercourse. Exactly one month after this encounter, I suffered somewhat flu and common cold type condition. It developed as follows:
There was no rise in body temperature, no noticeable fatigue, no serious or persistent body ache, no trouble doing usual chores, no unusual body rashes, and no unusual gastrointestinal problem. I visited the GP on the fifth day of this encounter. He examined my chest with a stethoscope and said no serious cough in the chest and that my condition may be from some mild viral attack, nothing serious.
My queries are :
Welcome to icliniq.com.
Before clarifying your doubts, I just want to let you know a few basic details about HIV (human immunodeficiency virus) and its transmission.
HIV is spread mainly by having an unprotected anal or vaginal sex with someone who has HIV, sharing needles or syringes of an infected person, or from mother to child during pregnancy, birth, or breastfeeding.
Transmission from homosexual males is more than transmission from a female to male. HIV can also be affected by receiving blood transfusions and blood products.
About your query, every infection does not need to be related to HIV and having unnecessary anxiety as does your general physician states.
Without knowing the health status of your partner, we cannot judge the acquaintance of HIV virus. If you are in doubt, you can go for HIV investigation to confirm this.
Without any proper evidence of active infection, there will not be any point in making this diagnosis.
