im afraid i have HIV

Apr 29, 2012

i had oral sex a few days ago, semen didn't come out in my mouth but i got some in my eye. Today and yesterday I've had kinda sore throat and slight headache (yesterday was stronger) do i have HIV or another STD? are these symptoms? please help me I'm really scared

Response from Ms. Southall

Hi Oral sex carries the lowest risk of HIV infection. HIV symptoms will not appear this quickly. If you symptoms continue I would recommend that you receive testing for other STI's. You could just have picked up a cold or allergies are bothering you.

Be well and stay safe, Shannon

I had protected vaginal sex with a friend.
Please answer. Should I be worried?
