Feb 19, 2010
hello and thank yo for your great job. Try to be brief..sorry for my english I had a relation 2 months ago with a prostitute.I don`t know if she was infected. Protected vaginal sex...unprotected felation ...I made cunnilingus to her on clitoral area during about 4 o 5 seconds.This cunilingus was in the beggining of the relationship and she was not very much (or nothing) wet.
in the 10 day after this , i had a a sore throat treated by my doctor with antibiotic.I did not have fever or rash , but i had swollen lymph under my jaw.Now,on the 51th day after the relationship i have an earache and the swollen lymph is still on my neck. Should i get tested?? Please plase help me

1. HIV testing is not medically necessary, however if it will help to put your fears permanently to rest (where they should be), get a single HIV antibody test at the 3 month mark. The odds are astronomically in your favor that your did not contract HIV form this encounter.
2. Your "symptoms" are most likely not HIV related.
Thanks for your ongoing support of The Robert James Frascino AIDS Foundation (www.concertedeffort.org). It's warmly appreciated.
Be well. Stop worrying. OK?
