oral sex with prostitute

Sep 9, 2012

I performed oral sex on a prostitute without protection. Two and 1/2 days later I developed a sore throat, fever, aches and pains. Five days after the encounter I had a PCR test, which just came back negative. Is five days too soon to be sure I'm negative?

Response from Mr. Cordova

Hi there:

Oral sex has been and remains a low-risk activity. I would not be too concerned about this incident. If you would like a conclusive result then you will need to go in for an antibody test at the three month mark. I'm confident your result will be negative from this incident.

In health,

Had protected sex, for the first time, do I have HIV?
