Unprotected sex and symptoms

Nov 25, 2011

Hi Doctor,

I had an unprotected sex with a girl of unknown HIV status. I got tested at 11 weeks and 15 weeks for antibodies and the result was negative. However after 5 months of this potential exposure I got OHL for 2 weeks and rash for about a month on my back along my shoulders.Do you think I should get tested again?

Response from Mr. Cordova

Hi there:

While the unprotected sex was most certainly a risk, you do not need to test any more. A test at 90 days will give you a conclusive answer.

In health, Richard
