I had Oral sex with a guy I haven't known him for very long. after that, I got very sick: pharyngitis,stomachache and have loose bowels...So I got a blood test 33 days later that sex happened and I got a negtive rest. but the symptom of illness seems more serious resently. Should I do another test?
Response from Ms. Southall
Hi Oral sex carries the lowest risk of HIV transmission. That being said and with your question regarding testing, the guidelines for HIV testing are to be initially tested at 3 weeks then again at 3 months, if both of these tests are negative then so are you.
Be well and stay safe, Shannon
