Early Symptoms of Seroconversion

Jun 30, 2001

Dear Dr. Holodniy,

Thank you for all of the help you have provided in this forum. I have been reading it regularly for about 6 weeks.

I had unprotected oral sex (both recipient and insetive) with a man I do not know well, but claims he is negative. No ejaculation occurred, but I am unsure about the persence of pre-cum. About three weeks after the first encounter (about 6 weeks ago) I have had a peristent mild sore throat (no other symptoms).

Is sore throat alone, as a symptom, an indication of infection or seroconversion?

Your response would be appreciated?

Response from Dr. Holodniy

Sore throat by itself is entirely a Nonspecific symptom, which could be the result of many different causes.

HIV from Antigen????
Confused, PLEASE HELP.
