Unprotected Oral sex for 4 years (20 times a year), After 4 months, i have symptoms of hiv like, Fatigue, Thrush infection(Not sure), Muscle pain, diarrhea(2 days only),burning and tingling in feet and hands, and Depression for 2 weeks. Is this HIV ?
Response from Ms. Southall
Hi Oral sex carries the lowest risk of HIV transmission. Everyone experiences different symptoms but all the symptoms that you are listing can be for many different things. If you have been seeing a health care provider and they are not sure of why you are experiencing these side effects than I would ask for an HIV test. Though it is unlikely from the exposures that you have described, it is possible that it could be HIV. The best way to know is to get tested.
Be well and get tested! Shannon
