Can body aches and othe symptoms com from anxiety? I'm a 26 year old woman. I've never had unprotected intercourse, but have had unprotected oral sex performed on me. One time I had it peformed on me after my first encounter of intercourse. I'm don't think his mouth was bleeding though, but all the same, i'm scared to death.

Response from Dr. Horwath

This is a very low risk sexual activity. Your aches and pains may well be from anxiety, but they are not due to HIV.
