Hi, this is Dr John from JustAnswers.

I am a U.S. board-certified physician with over 20 years of experience.

I am reviewing your question and will be with you shortly.

I may need to ask further questions.

No I haven’t had a fever at all but it started with my penis burning after I pee and sharp pain in my urethra and butt and my testicles itches but I’m not really have those problems anymore it’s my throat being sore and neck aching that started last Wednesday

any cough or nasal congestion?

Customer reply replied 6 months ago
Haven’t really been cough but keep clear my throat
Doctor: Doctor John MD, Board Certified MD replied 6 months ago

so the sore throat and neck ache are unrelated to the unprotected intercourse 6 weeks ago and is almost always from a cold virus.
The symptoms should improve over the next several days.
You can do warm salt water gargles to help with the discomfort and/or take over-the-counter tylenol or motrin.

Does that help answer your question?

I went to sleep and woke up and my pillow and mattress was soke and wet I’m nervous
Doctor: Doctor John MD, Board Certified MD replied 6 months ago
I can understand that you have some anxiety over this issue.However, if I recall, both you and your partner had negative HIV tests at 5-6 weeks after the encounter. That means that she didn’t have HIV when you were together and you would not be at risk for contracting HIV.Your sore throat symptoms would be due to a cold virus.Does that make sense?

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.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
