Response from Ms. Southall

Hi The symptoms you have described are not HIV related. I'm glad to hear that you are going to get tested with having the unprotected sex, you obviously realize this is a risk for HIV. The other thing to remember is HIV is not the only sexually transmitted infection (STI) that you have to be concerned about. When you go in for your testing I would ask for a complete STI screening to be sure that you are healthy. But again the symptoms you have described are not symptoms of HIV.

Be well and stay safe, Shannon
