Had unprotected sex about 4 months ago. Just recently i began to have runny nose, and from time to time had a cough..Now it seemed to have gone away, but I'm scared to go get tested?? Do i show any signs...other than the runny nose i feel fine..I run everyday, lift weights and coach..I show no signs of fatigue..But who knows now a days
Response from Dr. Dieterich
Sounds like you had a cold! Not too scary. However, you should get tested for HIV, because the earlier you know the better you will do. HIV is not that scary a disease anymore, but that is not a reason to have unsafe sex. Get tested and get treated if you are infected! DTD
