Sign of AIDS after 1 or 2 days?

Jan 30, 2013

Hi there,

I had unprotected oral/vaginal sex 2 days ago with a girl that i met at a club. A day after the incident i have the following symptoms:

- sore throat - high fever - swollen nymph glands - back neck pain - lower back pain

The fever went away on the 3 day after some extreme night sweats but i still have sore throat and have pain in back neck and lower back.

I know this can be a viral infection but I am quite paranoid, I have talked to the girl and she says she doesn't have HIV but I am just afraid that she might not be aware of it yet. So I want to know if the sign of AIDS can show in 1 or 2 days?

P.S. I also had a very bad hangover the next day with severe headache and spewing.

I am going to get tested day after tomorrow anyway but the wait is making me very anxious and depressed so any help would be highly appreciated.

Thanks, Harris

Hi Harris:

No, you would not be experiencing ARS so quickly. However, unprotected penetrative sex IS a risk. I would suggest an HIV test at 90 days to be sure.

In health,


can systematic candida affect ELISA test?
Doctor, please clarifi my risk ... 5th time asking
