Customer Question

I had a protected sex with a korean , including oral & vaginal with condom. I didn't have proper orgasm so my penis was not inserted to her properly & insertion was less than a minute. But after two weeks suddenly I had fever for a day but no swollen gland , no rashes , no shore throat. But I had a teeth problem since a long time. Last two days before the fever I had very bad tooth pain & swelling. So my question the fever is for HIV or tooth infection.

It would be impossibel to know for sure just based on your symptoms. Those with an early HIV infection often get fevers- but frequently do get other symptoms like swollen lymph nodes diarrhea, headaches and rashes. Your tooth infection could explain the fever, but it would be irresponsible of me to totally dismiss other possibilities.I would recommend testing for HIV- including either a 4th generation test or better yet a PCR test to detect early infection. The risk indeed is low after 1 exposure, but that is the only way to know for surePlease rank my answer if that answered your question
