Sir, can sore throat lasting for more than a week after 25 weeks of unprotected sex (all tests -ve) be a symptom of hiv?

Response from Mr. Cordova

Hi there:

No. A sore throat lasting for more than a week is not a sign of HIV infection. The only thing that will tell you whether or not you acquired HIV, is an HIV test at the 90 day window. Using a condom during each act of penetrative sex, is the best way to protect yourself from HIV.

In health,
