Ok that’s fine. Thank you

I'm sorry you are concerned with HIV. What was the date of your exposure?

I think I’ve been showing a lot of symptoms from 2 days after exposure...

So, five days ago. You can relax, there is no way you could have HIV and your symptoms of sore throat, fatigue, sore neck... etc may be from an upper respiratory viral infection, but certainly NOT HIV. It is even too early to test for HIV. The earliest would be 14 days after exposure and then you test may be equivalent. You don't mention that you have any discharge or pain when you urinate, so I will assume none.

Hi. Are you still there??
Customer reply replied 1 month ago
You are correct. No real pain when urinating. I have been so scared, so you definitely think all my symptoms will be for some other reason. Could stress be an attribute to this??

Yes, stress could account for all of your symptoms. Take some over the counter Ibuprofen, increase your fluids and most importantly relax. Should you start to have any urinary symptoms, then get medically examined.

I hope I have addressed your concerns. Have I?

You’ve helped me massively. I’ve been freaking out. I have had groin pain, tho I’m thinking possibly as the girl was very rough. Ive booked a hiv test for 4 weeks and hope they come back with our expected response. Thankyou soo much

You are welcome. Chances are great that your test will come back negative.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
