Response from Ms. Southall

Hi Wearing a condom is your best protection from HIV. I would think that your traveling and work has cause your body to wear down and you picked up a cold or flu along the way. If you symptoms continue or worsen than I would recommend you follow up with your health care provider.

Be well and stay safe, Shannon

Can symptoms be as early as 4 days?
Getting tested before having children
