how soon do they come?
Jan 19, 2000

i had unprotected sex once, and i had these very small white circular marks on the back of my tongue that almost look like tiny hairs which I noticed about two-to three weeks after my unprotected encounter. It was the only time I have had sex, and I just wanted to know if someone could get opprotunistic infections that soon after exposure.

Response from Dr. Feinberg

It's not very likely, but not impossible. If you are concerned about STDs (including HIV), please see a doctor. And don't make that mistake again!

will antibiotics taken 1 week before the Elisa give false negative
HIV-1 and HIV-2 and then..?
