do i need testing?

Feb 26, 2013

dear doctor, I received oral sex from a massagist without a condom. The encounter was extensive (about 45 minutes), but it did not involve unprotected penetration. I did not worry at first but 49 days after I had a strong virosis that involved high fever, headache and severe bronchitis. Do I need testing for HIV and other STDs ? I havent had any other symptons for 6 months now...

Response from Mr. Cordova

Hi there:

No. Your risk does not warrant testing.

In health,
