How quickly do symptoms appear ?
Feb 15, 2005
last week on a drunken night out i had a one night stand with a woman and had unprotected anal sex, after a few days i became very ill with flu like symptoms. I do not know the woman, could i have been infected ?
Response from Dr. Horwath
Yes, if you have unprotected sex with anyone (even if you know them), you could be infected. You need to practice safe sex in order to prevent infection.
However, your symptoms are not related to HIV.
