Response from Mr. Cordova

Hi there:

You would not have started experiencing symptoms that quickly. Also, the amount of time that you were inside of the sex worked was very limited. This lowers the likelihood of transmission. You can get an accurate HIV test at 90 days from the incident.

Bottom line: I would not be too concerned. Get a test just to be safe.

In health, Richard
